Unless I get my games on a big portal like Steam, I have really no means to lower prices if I want to keep making more games in future. And I definitely want to 8)

Well, honestly I like how it is now. Probably getting there has downsides too, like you need to make the games a certain way, less freedom and for example forget about sexy scenes/characters completely. So I'm not sure what would be better for players... :wink:

Yes we certainly do want you to keep making more as well. So I have no problem with supporting you.

Well there are different types of players, that would have different wants, personally I plan to keep buying direct but that's just me.

*gets out weapons* ... Steam can stay where it is - preferably faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar away from my favourite games >:(
I like my fanservice and eyecandy thank you very much *huffs*

Also I'd probably still buy from the page directly.
The moment there is a third party involved, the producer usually gets less.
Thought I suppose you could load up only the censored version of Loren to steam. Which would make me pity those missing out :3

Yah I like to keep away from STEAM thank you very much. I like "owning" the game and with steam it feels more like borrowing it from a library even though I paid for the game, and the free data collecting they get from people is none of their buisness >.<

But fwiw Steam does sell games that does have nudity/sexual content, just as long as it is not a AO rated game, they seem pretty content imo.

I rather give my money to the company itself and leave out the middleman. I know with distributors they tell you what they sell it for and what percentage of the cut they deem acceptable for you to keep unless you are an AAA developer.

I don't know if I should hug you jack, or slap you for the recent newsletter.
Now I totally had no excuse anymore to postphone playing Planet Stronghold anymore. Damn. *addicted again*

Ah actually Aleema already did it last week - but we changed only the final sentences, so nothing revolutionary. I wanted to wait to rebuild the game with the new Ren'Py version but meanwhile I guess I could already update it...

So no enlenghtening of the supposedly short prince-romance? (I read that in another thread)
Btw I found a typo just now - in case you'll still fix them :3

I'm supposed to kick the Arnox Sentinel and when triggering the ! mark in the middle of the map I find a Sentinel 'trapped' and
