Really just trying to establish precedent of charging 15 dollars for Gnomey to follow you around, in all future games, regardless of setting.

Gritty, dramatic zombie survival sandbox? Pay 15 dollars for a whimsical, magical gnome to follow you around. Game that takes place in space? 15 dollars for a gnome to follow you around. Some sort of match-3 puzzle game? Pay 15 dollars for Gnomey to be sitting onscreen, constantly bothering you.
Still going to buy.
100% serious.

While I think this is a great idea for us fans, I believe that some people will look at it as a complete waste of money (which it kind of is), leave negative reviews, and see it as a way of the dev forcing (you're not) them to pay more. Which in turn would mean they wouldn't tell others to purchase this game.

Just a thought.

Favorite app of all time - Dungeon Raid

Re-read what I said, "us fans". Other people who have no idea what a "toucharcade" is, will view it as something else...

Doing it anyway, putting a "THIS IS A TERRIBLE PURCHASE, ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO BUY" warning popup in there to confirm it.

Maybe an "ARE YOU SURE YOU'RE SURE" on top of that.

It'd be cool if you bought it, that it would actually be a live room that you connect to over the Internet and chat and whatnot in game. It'd make it feel like an exclusive party then.

if not already on your list of characters to create how would you think of a megaman type of character robot that basically has a blaster arm half human half robot or human in a robot suit that can gain different type of things to shoot out of the blaster somewhat like lexi and the magic. since the link/gnomey character is going to be made(thank you in advance) a megaman character would for sure set you apart. and the 100% biggest want from me is a character like sora or riku from kingdom hearts with a key blade type sword that has certain magic qualities.

I think we only have room for one big parody character per game. Plus it would feel weird to me to have a side-scrolling character in a top-down game, anyway. We were going to do a megaman-style game way back, but it got cancelled.

We have all our characters designed, though there's a lot of room to put stuff in, since each character has around 10 weapons/armors/trinkets.

Sued by Square-Enix and Disney for putting in a Key Blade that summons Mackey Maus
