Op Ed

Cliffski's Blog - Indie Game pricing pressures.
There seems to be an unwritten rule developing that indie games must be under £10, preferably under $10. This is MAD. Harry Potter was written by ONE person. just ONE. It’s production costs were tiny. Does that mean you saw the harry potter books on sale for a third the price of other books? Of course not. Nobody slots books or plays into an ‘indie’ category and tries to get them cheap, ditto music. Do you pay less for an Adele album than a Queen album, because Queen had more members? That would be silly.

People pay for advertising. If a game is advertised everywhere as the next big thing, with flashy graphics, CGI cutscenes and over the top voiceovers / quotes, people will magically think it's worth more. Have it advertised only on a few blogs and little known gaming sites, doesn't matter how good it is, people won't see the value.
