Ku: Shroud of Morrigan on sale for 99 cents.

A rather new ipad game; if your using the TA app you'll notice it in the "What's Hot" section. I've heard it's short, but, for a buck, I honestly prefer a short jaunt if the alternative is 99 cent grindfest that takes 200 hours to complete without iaps...which nearly always cost more than a solid game to begin with. I've got too many of those.

Just bought it. If someone cares to add the link, feel free.

At 99 cents this game is a steeeeeaaaallll!

You must buy this immediately. Even if it means you can't afford underwear next week, buy this game. Even if it means that your mom yells at you, buy this game. (But find 99 cents in the couch cushions to pay her back, of course).

Ku is great. It's worth the $4 I paid for it, and it's definitely worth it for $1. Go go!

(Can I be any more exclamatory here?)

Wow, that stung me. A few days ago, it got released. I bought it for 4 friggin bucks. And now it is $1?

No offence, I am not saying the game ain;t worth 4 bucks. But I don't see the logic here. The better (and honorable) thing to do was launch it at a buck then increase the price.

The way I look at it, the devs didn't get enough money from the first couple of days and want more so the discount the game by a huge 75%. Shameful and shameless antics from them.

True that sometimes we get stung on the App Store. But given the amount of ridiculously low-priced ($1 or FREE) games we snag, the occasional price drop in the other direction shouldn't sting too much?

And don't be too quick to blame bitSmith. They're first time iOS developers, not some big money hungry studio laughing that they "got you". They're still learning what works, and trying some different tactics. I agree that they should have started at a buck for a limited time, and then raised the price, but I'm pretty sure if you sent them a PM they'd refund the price diff for you.

In any case, the game is worth the $4 we paid. All 10 of us who bought it helped them afford maybe be team lunch, nothing more. They deserve the chance to try to raise their sales, and I support them in that effort!

I recall reading JUST A FEW HOURS AGO that they said the game won't be put on sale. So they ALSO when back on their own words said just a couple of hours ago.

Oops. Really? Then yeah, send them a note. They're pretty cool folks.

Gets me thinking. I need to make a shirt like: "Proud to have paid full price" or "In before the price drop!" or "Also buys the soundtrack" or something to show my support for indie devs...

Actually, if you re-read that post, they said they WILL BE doing a sale.

That is cause they edited it at 8 pm. Posted originally at 6pm. They made a decision a couple of hours later! I saw the original post.
