    Come late to this one, but I think the Japanese word as a name is even worse to a Japanese than it is when read as English tbh.

    Would you expect to sell anything from "www.bagofshitgames.com" ?

    well, luckily for me (and other indie devs), that is absolutely an opinion and not a fact... My $25 games sells just fine :D

    I just re-read what I wrote and realised it was ambiguous. I didn't mean to say that no indie game is worth $25, I meant that you can look around at indie games and see that a fair number of them are clearly not worth the amount they charge. It was just refreshing to see a $5 game priced at $5.

    Although presumably the low end of the market is better served by putting games on places like Kongregate and getting sales through advertising.

    It does sadden me when people show this attitude. I admit that a large majority of games available are utter shite and are not worth 1 pence.

    But if it's worth a second look at all, how can anyone says its worth 5 dollars and not 10 or even 20.

    A pint of beer costs the equivalent of 5 bucks and you get to enjoy that for only 5 minutes and it don't come with a playable demo either..

    I agree. $20 isn't very much to most folks, the real issue is making something that people want.

    With the increase in prices of almost ALL "luxury" commodities (going out, movies, music, anything) I really think that $20 is cheap.
    As player I didn't mind paying 59eur to get the last Pro Evolution Soccer game. Then I'm a person that buy 2-3 games a year, but price isn't really a major factor in my decision.

    Bimboo is fine, it didn't read as bimbo to me more like bamboo if anything (as mentioned above).
