Last week I proposed a premium subscription for Captain Forever (working title), and the response was overwhelming… ly negative. Which is great. Without feedback I’d have followed my plan to untimely financial demise, so thanks for saving me folks. Let’s see if we can fix this thing.
Captain Forever will be a free, self contained game. That’s the dream. But I think it has the potential to be much bigger, and I want to get it there. I’m going to need support in this endeavour. I thought subscriptions could be the answer, but I don’t want to trap people in recurring payments, I don’t want to trap myself supporting an unsustainably small player base, and I don’t want to upset people by changing what they’ve purchased. I want, y’know, good things. So let’s try something else.
How would you feel about a series of games? Each would be a new universe, a new challenge, a new experience. I’m thinking ~$2 each, monthly release, gradually building on the core game as I go. People can buy whichever installments they like. No subscriptions, no forced updates, just cheap awesome fun.
What do you think? Is this a better model? Sounding board GO!
