To anyone new on this topic, if what you are about to say isn't intended to build a person up, and enlighten them, then you don't belong here. If you believe that my game isn't a "Real Game' like Captain Co Co suggests, then don't be rude about it like he did. Please just explain to me why you believe this game isn't good enough yet. But be nice about it. Don't get rude with me. Nobody deserves to be treated like a low-class nobody. Lets all just get along. My topic so far is RUINED!!!! Thanks to some kids. I'm going to keep my game at what it is right now.
Okay I'm calm now. I think the fire is out. So let me express to you what I believe some games are.
A game is a game. People only care about having fun while playing it. That's all that matters. If its kids and "Family Friendly people that I am able to reach out to, then so be it, THEY will be my customers then. Who cares if I don't impress the hard-to-please? I don't care about fancy crap, all I care about is making a game that I myself created. Its my expression. Its an art. Its not right to cut down the artist for expressing himself to his audience. His "image" is valuable to him. We need to be sensitive to that fact. An artist puts all his feelings into one wonderful creation or design, and that's always special.
Some people may not see it this way. Some people may believe I should compete better with the rest of the world. Nintendo, Xbox, PlayStation. But really, I don't care about all those extra details.
Think of the woman who sits in her home knitting. She puts all her heart into what she weaves. Should she not have a right to put the price tag on it she feels is right for it? The person who works on their creation, states its value. Unlike Xbox and those big-name companies, i'm not like them. I run a different business. A business that isn't really business, its more of a mere passion that's not out to just make money. Games are my passion, and yes, I do put a high price tag on my games. Because they are that valuable to me. Maybe not to someone else, but to me, they are very valuable. My games are like precious gems I find buried somewhere. Nobody has to buy it, but everyone is just going to have to except the fact that the price is what it is, cuz Its not going to change.
Its kind of hard to explain really. I'm not trying to compete. I'm not really sure how to explain it. I don't even care to consider myself a businessman. I try to live a SIMPLE life. Without concerning myself with where the world is going and their madness. To everyone else, they criticize my game is priced too high, but try to think outside the box a little. The price isn't a rip off, because the value is in the artist. The artist isn't out to rip anyone off, he's out to share it with the world, but at the same time, trying to make ends meet too. I'm sorry if the price on my game offends you. But its not like other games where i'm trying to please everyone. Its my own special creation, its my baby, Yes! It is THAT valuable to me. Just try to understand.
Basically, some games are out to compete, while other games, we need to let go of what we think is "Quality" and try to see the "Quality within" the artist. We need to see other games as an "art" not a "product." My game is NOT a product out to be a good deal for your buck. Its a creation of mine. And its well worth what I was originally asking for it. Besides, I am offering updates anyways cuz I love just working on it whenever I have free time.So the game will always keep getting better.
The only people who should post here are people who also take tons of passion into their work and don't declare it a "PRODUCT" to have.
Hey I just made 3 sales just now... how about that. My web store sent me an email of the people who just bought the game for the price I was asking. Not the outstanding one, but the lowered one. I have their emails. How nice of them I'll send those people a link to where they can download it. Its 11:26PM right now. Funny how the very day you told me I wouldn't make a sale, I did. I hope I make more tomorrow... and no i'm not using copyrighted Nintendo music. I know better than that. I did compose the music myself with Anvil Studio. Its just midi music but I'm sure I can sharpen it up. More ignorance from the know-nothings.But hey I should advertise my site too, right now its not advertised. But as soon as I do I'm sure i'll do great. And no i'm NOT making this up, 3 people just bought my game just now... that's SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anybody have anymore suggestions? AND PLEASE just follow forum rules!!! I know I double posted before but that's because this website has problems. I clicked on edit and it counted it as a reply instead. i have no idea why it did that. But I try very hard not to double post and I want to apologize to Nocturn for doing this. I am sorry for that, I try to follow rules.
Thank you SO MUCH to whoever removed those posts!!! Even the things i had to say, I wish I never had to say it!! I don't want my precious topic cluttered with a bunch of bull-snot. That stuff was certainly undesired.
