How should I go about the release of TowerClimb?

6.99 is probably the right price. I think 4.99 is too low, and gets into that 'percieved as cheap' realm.

[quote="Davioware":11oux149]tions? Most indie games use an ecommerce service which isn't paypal[/quote:11oux149]

I'm not sure how they are for small transactions...would be good to see how much of a cut they take versus other options. Also, I know the Minecraft guy had some issues with Paypal freezing his account (probably because of the hundreds of thousands pouring in..which maybe setoff some suspicion alarms..still kinda sucky).

Pro for Paypal: If you already have it.. it is an easy impulse buy for the user (kinda like Amazon...) just click a few times and you are done.

Con for Paypal: Freeze your account?? If you don't have it.. i think it is more a hassle to buy.

Yeah, maybe ecommerce supporting standard credit cards would be better.

Would also define target audience's age group.
For the very youngs: the cheaper the more sales, I'd guess, but probably at least for 5$.
(The N game is free of charge, and is said to be downloaded 2 mill. times.)

Yeah, if it were to come out on Steam I'd definitely buy it. Anything else (especially something using Paypal) and I'll be having second thoughts.

I second this idea. Lots of exposure and easy payment.

Edit: Is there a way to do both? Some may not want to install Steam...

Yeah, Steam is a really good idea.

Hmm... Steamworks integration with Construct?

Is steamworks integration really necessary for all games? Does anyone know if vvvvvv has it?

If it is, I may need someone to make a plugin...
