And the game's half off ($10) on their site right now.
I purchased it at that price and am comfortable with paying that much.

Is it possible you would do indiegamestand?

I think you guys are wrong about the price being too high for an indie title. Prison architect its still selling for $29.99 for an early access.

I think the problem is not that it's too high for an indie game, just too high for this game in it's current state of 'user awareness'. It hasn't shown enough or marketed itself to justify.

I'm going to echo what the others have been saying and said that while I am interested in this game personally I find the price point too high for an indie/casual game such as this. I may check back if there is a sale at some point.

From the description this is my kind of game. That is it was, until I saw the price. No thanks. Maybe if it goes on sale by at least 50%. Shame really. Devs that do this must wonder why they get so little return for the time they spent making their game. From the other comments I can see I'm not the only one who thinks this way. One comment mentioned a 'Demo'. I wont even try that because the price range for this is way too high. Good luck though.

I am interested in this title, but I think you're making a mistake charging so much for it at such an early stage. Waiting for sale.

Hi, I downloaded an played the demo of the game beofre purchasing the full version. I loved the demo and decided to fork out the $20 for the full version but once it finished downloading i was confronted with a message of "No available CD keys", what does this even mean? The game wont start untill i enter a CD key, but i havent been issued one. Im aware that this is probably not the fault of the developers, but i dont think its unreasonable to expect to be able to play the game i just paid for, rather than essentailly getting a $20 error message. Any help would be apreciated.
