Thanks We're really happy with how it's coming together too.

There were a couple of reasons we made the switch to premium.

We didn't feel like F2P was a great fit for the type of game we're making. F2P can work well with games with endless content (like runners), but is harder with level based games. We could have added lots of grind with the plane upgrades, sold currency, had consumable boosts and ads, but we felt it was getting in the way of making the game we wanted to make.

Another reason is we're a small team with a modest budget. F2P can take months to tune into a profitable game. Going premium out of the gate means we (hopefully) get sales soon after launch, and that makes things easier for continuing to support Tail Drift, and working on more games.

We just need to get the word out so people know the game!

We're going to have more updates soon, there is plenty more we've worked on that we're going to show off.

Well it sure sounds like you've made the right choice! I really am incredibly happy to see this become premium, and I'm looking forward to see what else you have to show off! The game is looking really awesome


(Fingers crossed for a boat)
