Has anyone else had a moment in the thread today where all the quotes did not have the banners with the person who originally said it across the top? It has happened twice for me and I am on 10ppp. I am wondering if we are about to kill this message board software.
Happens on occasions, though usually a refresh fixes it for me.
No idea. Ninja's Steam thread get pretty huge sometimes.
I keep that crap in check now. I don't want the thread to explode one day and I have to type everything up again.
I think I'm probably one of the bigger supporters of indie games around here (I even loved Proteus!), but most of their games are just retro games with very slight tweaks. I think they are falling into the trouble of overvaluing their own games. I understand that as a dev it would be hard to say "my game isn't worth 10 even though that's what I need". If you start the games at a lower price, more people will buy. People impulse buy at 5, but not very often at 10.
For what it's worth their games are a lot of fun, though I'd agree $10 is asking a bit much for what they are. With so many awesome games out there (many for cheaper) it's hard to expect most people to pay that much for them, let alone the increased price when they release on PSN. Indie devs don't seem to have a ton of good business sense, but it shouldn't be hard to look at all the other devs putting games out at that price and seeing them tank to know it's not a price point that works. A shame sense I feel at $5 or so they get a lot more people checking it out and then possibly telling their friends and having them buy it, which potentially is a lot more than the original $5 less. At this point word of mouth is likely the most important factor for indie games succeeding, but few devs attempt to take advantage of it.
