And if you calculate it up, if the full version sells 500 times, that'd be 800*500 = 400.000 USD. How large is the team? 4 heads? It'd still not be enough to make a lot of dough, but it'd be enough to live well enough while being able to work full-time on Construct. And then updates could keep the cashflow alive.
I'm sure reading numbers like that might be scary for a lot of the users that are mainly using free tools, but in order to keep the project alive and kicking, it'll sooner or later have to bring in some dough.[/quote:fay3w5bg]
Thanks for your replies.
This topic is not primarily about free or not free, but what the developers are planning with Construct.
(I don't mind going off-topic, but I would like to see a reply from the developers)
To reply on Thomasmahler, your business model-idea is interesting, but the restrictions for the recreative builders are too high and the price is too. (I can't afford the suggestion or indication you gave)
(this article says something about lower prices generate more income http://www.edge-online.com/features/val ... -expensive
And: Audacity, some Linux distributions and Gimp are alive and kicking. And free.
