Hi Trouble, that's true of course, but some people in our comunity have
wicked tempers. Even worse I've spoken to my fair share of people that
hav a "you owe me" attitude, and it drives me crazy.
That said, I've thought about setting up something like an msdn
subscription style service. If you can afford it Microsoft has a
subscription for msdn that allows you to download betas for MS Office,
Windows, etc and you can upgrade to the full product for a discount when
it comes out. It is expensive, but it is a way of getting legal copies
of their software as they become available, and for a discount when they
If I set up a similar service on my web site people would donate x
amount each year for games, and as a result they would get all alpha,
beta, and full releases of my games for a reduced price or for nothing
at all. That's a way of putting money into the company, but also giving
people x number of games for a base fee.
I can see your point here, but unlike the one that you took the games
over from. You have come out with updates and reasons why you got set
your right a game can not be done in a day and neither was the earth.
pre orders are up to you, but personally i see the head ache makes
them not worth it.
Just so the others know. Big game companies break out the info on the
update. Just to wet your apatite and then take as long as they want on
the release with no info until release. So you could be waiting six
munths to over a year for more info on the game you pre paid for, and
they do not answer email or letters about said games.
