I'm sorry to say this but making a game free after one day of release will only get you angry customers

Sweet! Glad I waited on this one.

Kinda feel bad for the early adopters, however...

Also commented in the main thread, but I too feel like this was a bad move even though I hadn't bought it. And from the GOTW thread, it sounded like he was doing it just to help win that contest. Going free and screwing the people who bought it early just to win a little contest for TA members?

Game looks good, and going free after about 12 hours (in the US) may help generate some interest, but it's definately not good PR for those who jumped on it last night. Hope you do something to help offset that reaction.

It's great to be able to pick this up for free, but I can't even imagine how annoyed early (less than a day ago) adopters are.
