It looks like he's picking his nose. And this thread makes more sense, as the title lends itself to talk about the game in general, and not just the price.

OKay some quick impressions... The presentation is really good, especially the music. However, it is QUITE apparent that the Blue Skies engine was used to make this game. The controls are a bit touchy, but you get the hang of it pretty quickly. I honestly won't be able to say whether or not it's worth the 8 bucks until I get further, but I'm not regretting the purchase. I'll post more impressions later in the evening, and give my final review.
