Ravensword 2 Pricing

We're curious about pricing our game. We have some ideas in mind already.
It will be premium, we know that for sure...
The game will be rather large, as far as how much area to explore and how many quests. I'd say its about the same size as Aralon, maybe slightly larger...
Thoughts?

I'd be willing to instabuy $9.99 and under, and anything more and I might wait and see a vid before buying. But if it's similar to Aralon maybe $6.99. But for a premium game I'd be willing to pay a lot more than usual

I would probably do the same thing as banger said

Agreed with the price points mentioned above. $6.99 would probably be the best choice to go with since it's a popular pricing point and could easily get you into the Top Paid Apps chart without scaring off the casual gamers. $9.99 would be just as suitable though considering the size and quality of the game, but it might not shoot up as fast. Either way, it's an instabuy from me on day 1!

$6.99 too (5,49 I think). Isn't that the price that GL gives to every premium game?

Lol, you guys did this for the first Ravensword as well. $6.99 or $9.99, I'd say.

I would say $6.99, dont get me wrong i think its worth more but at that price you'll probably attract many more people.

Cant wait for it to come out ! Aralon was one of the best games i ever played on iOS, was so addicted to it, brilliant game. Cant wait for this one

I never realized there was such a politic to pricing. Why don't you pull a Radio Head and just put it up for free, and let people who download it donate what they like (j/k, by the way)

Though, based off the screens and your track record, I'd personally pay $20 for it. I mean I just paid $50 usd for The Last Story on the Wii, and from what I understand it is only about 20 hours long. So a game like this, with what I presume will be some serious length and the obviously current gen visuals - $20 easily.

I mean really, if Square can ask $15 - $30, I don't see why you can't. But those pricing politics... Man do we not like then

Seriously, though, I can understand everyone else's response. Above $10 is a lot in the app store.

What ever you decide, I'm sure the game will be great!

I think I enjoyed walking around the town in The Last Story more than playing most ios games. =/ and it is 20 hours + of fast paced narrative/character driven gameplay.

I think $7.99 is a fair price for the game.
