IGG Dev Update 98: The Mercynaries
Huge thanks to SinComics for doing a crossover with GBDNATE! This is going to be a fun one, and the crossover has already started in Mercynaries! :D Make sure to check out www.sincomics.com/ !

I really like Ruth and Mercy, they look cool, they're smart, and just silly enough to be really fun. I think they make a great match for the GBDNATE crew! :D

*Update at bottom*

My PC refused to boot entirely today. The system claimed my windows install had been corrupted and wouldn't let me get to my desktop. I tried using the install disk's repair option without luck.

Far from being willing to give up on the little work from yesterday I had not backed up, I stripped the machine down and cobbled together a working Frankenstein machine from the parts of this one and my last one. I've managed to backup my work on Gender Bender from yesterday as well as my personal work on my Azure project.

I'm now trying to get this Frankenstein rig up and running properly. Failing that I'll be ordering a Mac online. 

So don't expect streams for the near future. 

I was all hyped to draw and stream today. talk about a shitty f*ing day.

*UPDATE*

Seems the Frankenstein Machine is holding together... for now. Making worrysome noises, which is really odd considering there are no harddrives in it (only a couple SSDs). It's probably one of the fans, but it's still worrying me. I think all this hardware business has made me more paranoid than ever. Anyways, it's up and running and workable. So expect a stream tonight. I'll try and run with this rig till it dies on me too and then I'll get the mac. No way in hell am I going to sit here waiting for another month. f*ck that.

Ps. sorry for the swearing. I'm not very pleased about this.

*Update 2*

Used the money from commissions to get a replacement power supply for my main rig. technically speaking I could replace most of it for less than the cost of a mac. And if the issue is external, despite my best efforts to eliminate anything that could cause an issue, then at least its not like I'll fry a brand new mac. But aye, stream tonight on this frankenstein rig. Its iffy, but it works.

*Update 3*

Stream tonight is cancelled. The Frankenstein rig is really unstable. I'll be ordering the mac this weekend with apple care, so if it fries they'll just replace it.

Just had a look at a game... and then at it's price.
I was shocked... I'm working on a game right now with my RPG-Maker VX Ace
and the only money I want to make out of will be from ads.

22 € are just too much for a hobbyproject that needs a lot of improvement.
everyone started small so better make the price as smal as possible.

I don't really understand your justification for making the price as small as possible. How does that make good business sense if the game you're working on isn't financially sustainable? How can you expect to move forward as a developer?

We've got a 30hr game, and we're still adding more content to the game. I think we're a good value for money, and no good ever comes from devaluing your product.

look at the price of other Dating sim games. 
22 Bucks IS too much. I know that a lot of work is inside that project,
but you can't expect anyone to pay too much money for a game that is still in developement.
while it's in early access I would think about 7- 10€ would fit much better.
Notch didn't make the Minecraft alpha 20 bucks. He started with 10.

About how my justification makes sense: the people should first get to know you.
None would buy a game at this price from a developer that just started to make games.

We've done sales and lower price points in the past, but $25 is the most sustainable price point for us. If you look at our Indiegogo it was the most successful tier. We're a bit different to Minecraft too, we don't have mainstream appeal, we're a niche game of a niche genre. There's a reason why Winter Wolves is still around with it's $25-$30 price point games and why companies like DysChan go bankrupt with a $4 price tag for their visual novels. If you start with a free/$1 game to build your fan base, those fans are going to 'know you' as the $1 game guy, they're not going to suddenly pony up 10x that amount for your next game. You don't want to devalue yourself as a developer.

You can't devalue your product, and as long as you give people their money's worth then it doesn't matter what any other game company is doing. That's why the game is so massive content wise, we're focused on developing a big game for our fans, and going off our user reviews on Desura and our installation rate of newer characters, I'd say we're doing a good job.
