Hey Mikes, I could not be more pumped for this game. Mikey Shorts was robbed for GOTY in my opinion, and was easily the most fun I've had on my phone since probably SQH.

May i ask what price point you are considering- I really feel that at 99c the first one was far too cheap. I'd love to see it around the 2.99 mark with maybe a unique hat (or hook) as an early buyer's bonus. (It feels ridiculous saying 2.99 is reasonable when I got more fun/playtime out of Mikey Shorts than I have with some AAA titles at $60-80 a pop).

Well now, hopefully this leads to a Rocketcat/BeaverTap crossover game. *wink wink nudge nudge*

Kepa is a joke if he is seriously offended at this after CHOOSING to neglect their hooking games.

How about Mikey walks (year walk)
Or Mikey slugs (metal slugs) for a future sequel

I can't wait to play this game

Great question! But I don't have a good answer for you right now. Pricing is still up-in-the-air at this point. Should have more once we get closer to release and hammer out the details. You aren't the first to say we should charge more.

$99.99, reducing one dollar for each sale before reaching 99.

Talk about early adopter blues if they did that...

We'll most likely follow it up with whatever Rocketcat has been doing. Expect Mikey Mages and Mikey Punches later this year.

If you want to finish the first level, you'd better purchase the $99.99 barrel of jumps.
