Ravensword Price Poll

After many arguments - decided to start this poll.
I'm actually going to buy Dungeon Hunter tonight so I can weigh our game in against it - price wise, content wise, etc...

If it is as truly as great as I expect it to be but also to compete in the appstore a 9.99 price would be right for me. Though naturally I would pay more

edit; +10 prices would surely scare away quite a few customers away no matter what the content

I suggest an intro sale, then 9.99, to get it in the top 50.

actually I agree to make it 6.99 to compete an take away customers from DH then put it to full price after a while but in the end its your choice of what price your choosing

Aww man, why would anybody pick any price other than the lowest one. I mean, if you where going to be sold a new car and you could pay any price for it as long as it's no less than $20, wouldn't you pay only the $20.

If your content is more than Dungeon Hunter, it should be priced above 6.99. I would pay over 9.99 for an elder scrolls type game on the ipod touch.

No I strongly dissagree, 3.99 is seriously undercutting your game.

agreed...really brief sale-price for launch and then up it to a more 'apropriate' price range. I think you should consider the size of the game and overall hours/polish applied to determine price. The big spinners on the app store have no problem charging what they're worth.. ie Doom, Modern Combat, Gangstar etc... but no one really expects it to sell fast if its over $10US... (more for me...AU$)
