Alganon "Soft" Launch

Quest Online announces the "soft launch" of Alganon, their fantasy-themed MMORPG, offering discounts to new players. There's a launch message from David Allen on the game's website and a soft launch video on their channel on the YouTube. There's also an Alganon Launch Day Interview on ZAM News talking with Jim Younkin, the game's community manager. Here's part of the announcement:

"During this Soft Launch process, players can purchase Alganon at a 50% discount and can also gain additional discounts on the monthly fee," said David Allen, President of Quest Online. "Alganon is a warm, vibrant and inviting world players want to be a part of. We've got something really special here players can be a part of for years to come, especially as the world grows through the numerous planned free expansions."

Supporting the Soft Launch of Alganon is the unique MyAlganon community system (http://www.myalganon.com, offering a number of features to bring players together including groups, SMS message updates, stream communication, and large-scale repositories of characters, guilds, and game information.

I just don't get it. Why even be in the games industry if that's all you can aspire to?

Because most of us aren't financially independent and able to spend millions of dollars of our own money to make our dream game...so we have to make games that people with money are willing to part with said money in order to make?

This whole thing though reeks of "The game is not done, we need your money now, but know that we can't stick you for the full price and have any hope of turning things around."

So basically a discounted pay-for-beta
