En Garde Price Increase

Monday, February 2, 2009

En Garde continues to gain in popularity. The number of games played, the number of active players, and the number of games sold each week keeps going up.

That's all great, I'm happy to see the game do so well. But En Garde is more than just a game, it's a whole system. The name textures on the scoreboard, the world rankings, and the website all work together. I've designed everything to scale as much as possible, but the one thing that can't scale is my time.

So I need to raise the price of the game. If you currently own En Garde, this will not affect you at all. All existing owners will still have free upgrades for the life of the product. However, if you were planning on buying En Garde, or you own it and you were thinking of purchasing additional licenses, you might want to do so sooner rather than later.

I haven't yet decided on a new price. If you have an opinion on the matter, please comment on it here.



I don't know why you would want to increase the price of your most popular product. I don't see the logic in it.

If anything prices should go down and people might buy more boards.

I guess I wasn't clear enough.

I try to provide a certain level of support for my products. My games are complex, scripted objects that customers frequently need help with.

The increased number of games I am selling is straining my time. I would rather provide high-quality service on fewer games than try to sell as many as possible with a lower quality of service.
