How did you decide about the cost? I have absolutely no problem shelling out $30 or $40 for a good game. However your site does very little to justify that kind of spend.

It is a sub-section, so if you don't want to view it you don't have to =)

We feel that 29.95 is a fair price for the game, given the amount of content that is in it and the challenges it will provide gamers with.

The higher cost for physical production, is due to us being an indie developer / self-publisher, since we cannot produce copies in large quantities (10,000+ units) we cannot benefit from bulk production savings =/

Of course a 'Good Game' is releative to the player, Morning's Wrath is a Classic Adventure / Action RPG hybrid, so if you are a fan of both genres you will likely enjoy the game a lot.

In current test cases we have found people to be able to beat Morning's Wrath in about a Week+, while playing about 3 to 6 hours a day.

The current website, it a pre-launch site, and has been up for about about a year.

This poll in-fact will be used to insure we focus our efforts on certain aspects of the new site that will benefit the majority of our fan-base.

Are you planning on releasing a demo version? I'd be inclined to pay your price if I could try it out first. It looks, via your screenshots, that you put a lot of effort into the game and I would like to support an indie dev such as yourself. However, I can go buy a new game from corporate dev houses that are just as good if not better, and I got to download the demo of on fileplanet or 3dgamers.

Yes we will have a free demo availible on our website to download, so you can 'try before you buy' =)

We are definetly not trying to compete with large corperate game developers;

our goal is mainly to produce indipendant titles, which, (depending on what you like) are no longer considered to be viable sources of mass income.

For instance, there are _very_ few 'professional' new Classic Adventure style games out there. And if you have played diablo 1 to death, you might enjoy Morning's Wrath, to see what spins we put on the Action RPG genre =)
