You're right. The competition is steep even at the 99c price. It's amazing the effort that went into some of those 99c games. But, as you know, I couldn't price it cheaper.
Bottom line, I just hope that players think it was a buck well spent. I estimate the games value somewhere above a Big Gulp but less than a Del Taco burrito.
THPTPTH! was my first game. I wanted to experience the process of building, releasing and selling a game from A to Z. Now that I know more, made rookie mistakes and see some potential, my next game will be a much more serious effort.
