» Revenant77x - 14-05-11 18:07 -- I think so
» Lightvader - 14-05-11 18:07 -- Yes ,from the developer's side this is good. But i don't think it's that good from the end-users' side
» Revenant77x - 14-05-11 18:06 -- it's a good way for them to raise money durring production without having to go sell their souls to Electronic Arts
» ELK12695 - 14-05-11 18:05 -- it's best seller
» Revenant77x - 14-05-11 18:05 -- basically it's like doing a kickstarter
» Lightvader - 14-05-11 18:05 -- Also,did you know nasa has a game on steam?
» Revenant77x - 14-05-11 18:05 -- you're missing the point
» Lightvader - 14-05-11 18:04 -- So basically,you are paying to report bugs. I think that you can atleast offer the game for free till beta testing is over,and then sell it
» Revenant77x - 14-05-11 18:03 -- and the people that bough in early get a bargin price and get to shape the game
» Revenant77x - 14-05-11 18:03 -- you raise cash to move forward get a ton of free playtesters
