I recently released a project called Francois DIY - my version of Mario Maker and I am in the process of making levels. Playing my own levels is fun but playing other people's levels is even more fun! Anyways, this is more of a want than a need but I'm starting to get addicted to Francois DIY and Mario Maker!

It looks interesting, but where's the download? I don't see any links anywhere on that page.

You can't download it online. I store my development files on a flash drive. I am selling the CD on eBay for $15 but you can make an offer. The reason why I'm selling the studio is because eBay is my other hobby and I have nothing to sell on it. $15 may be too high for the studio so I allow offers. Once people obtain the CDs I would like to form a small community of people who build levels and stuff.

You are asking for help then charging people to help you, you won't get help that way.

Umm... no. Just that if anyone bought the CD they could help me build levels. Maybe I should charge in pixels? I think 15 pixels would be sufficent!

I think you're definitely doing this wrong.

First of all, if you want to sell copies, you need to clearly show what you're getting. Some videos would help, and I personally would also want to know if you get the source code ("open source" is mentioned on the page you linked), what license it's under, and what its dependencies are.

But you're not going to make any significant amount of money from this. Maybe a few hundred dollars, or a thousand if you're really lucky. I would suggest you don't even attempt to do that. Just put a download up on your website, upload the source code to a Git repo, accept that you probably won't gain much of anything from it, and use it as an investment: a way to build your reputation so that people might support (e.g. via crowdfunding campaigns, Patreon, etc) future projects. From the sound of things, it seems you partially made this because you would like to encourage others to make levels, so this shouldn't be a huge problem.

If you do attempt to make money from this, I suggest you encourage people to pay, but not compel them. itch.io and GameJolt both support this. Suggest a price of $15, but allow them to pay $0.

What about $5 for it?

I actually created this to be able to create games and get people to make levels for me that I can play. I want to see something on eBay to make a look like I'm running a software business because that's cool.

What I can do is this:

1. Provide download code from francoisdiy.com.

2. Sell it on eBay for $5 with best offer. But I want to design a software box and stuff for it like this:

I'd like to sell some branded game maker for the full $15 with package and everything!

P. S. Seems like you really want to try the software!
