Floris: Y'all Win + Let's buy Billy an iPad Sale

Yes I am crazy, and yes I set Floris to 99c again. But sales dropped too hard yesterday with price increase so I'm doing what I can to share this with the masses...

Main thread is here - comments there encouraged..

Anyhow my insanity is yours to be exploited. It's worth 5x the price for the music alone.

And on that note it pains me that the genius who wrote the Floris music (Billy Sheeran) is unable to enjoy the game because he has no iOS hardware.

He's an "old school" kinda guy - rocks a flip phone and barely knows what a Twitter is, but let's move enough copies to buy him an iPad, ok? I'm dying to hear what he could do with some of those iPad synths and GarageBand..

Take a spin with Floris now.

Im sure most of you know but the price change can take an hour or two to populate the store... sit tight.

Well I'll be damned, that's a really cool concept.

Thanks Echoseven - if you've any interest in a Tetris style game (who doesn't??) I really think there is a lot for you to like here.

I'm committed to listening to feedback and making this the best game possible for a long time to come.

Thanks for checking it out.

Hey gguiller forgive me, are you offended by the price? It offends me a little, the price, because IMHO it's worth way more than $1:

There are no ads, IAP, or gotchas of any sort, and above all the game is interesting, unique, engaging, challenging, beautiful, and fun..

I understand if you bought it for $3.99, $2.99, $1.99 - but come on we're talking about less than I tip a bartender for pouring me a beer...

I want as many people to play this as possible, and even if I don't think it's a fair measure of the value, the $1 price point moves the most copies. I'm an indie, I'm a newb, and I'm learning things as I go.

So please forgive me I'm not trying to be unfair to anyone - I just want people to give Floris a chance and this price seems to be the best way to do it.

And I say this with utmost respect and humility - my customers are my most important assets.

Bottom line is that it's a good game & my apologies on the knee jerk reaction. You deserve success & to not understand is on me!

Thanks gquiller That means an incredible amount to me.


An aside, and I posted this in the main thread, but does anyone know why Floris doesn't appear in the AppShopper new/updates/price drop list? I can search and find it but it's never one of the main titles in the list.

Not complaining, just wondering if there was something I was supposed to do to register it there.

Thanks again y'all.

Appshopper pulls data directly from the AppStore so there's no need to register or anything. It's usually well behind the action which is why many people prefer other services for up to the minute or even ahead of time notifications of AppStore activity.
