Some more info: -An action platformer about reflecting on your past that syncs the gameplay and music, with the player’s choices affecting the story and certain game elements as well. -Contains a story mode as well as 40+ challenge stages, complete with full leaderboards. -Inspired by indie games such as Crypt of the Necrodancer, Just Shapes & Beats, Wandersong, the BIT.TRIP series and Thomas Was Alone. -A fairly short game (roughly 1-2 hours for the story mode + additional time for challenge stages) that does not require a significant time commitment.
My test accounts are still in there but I'll remove them soon-ish. Hurry up peeps! Get on there and get some high scores!
@J.K. Riki It's definitely rough on Steam, lol. I got a few hundred wishlists over the last few years but that hasn't translated into much so far. I think I'm more or less just selling to friends and family right now. Every copy counts!
And Itch is even more dead... BUT, due to the pay what you want model, my Itch income is somehow like 1/5 of my (very low) overall income so far?!
Good idea but also way more difficult than you probably realize! If the game was selling a ton I'd think about it, but honestly I'm probably just going to focus on fixing whatever bugs pop up and then moving onto my next game.
@Stan McStanly It's more an issue of getting the songs in good order as standalone songs. For instance, looping songs sound terrible if you just cut them off abruptly at the end of the loop, so I'd have to go make new versions of all of the looping songs that either fade out or have a real ending. Etc.
@J.K. Riki It's working in the sense that in just a handful of days of this sale I've already sold about as many copies as I did up to this point, so I basically doubled my overall sales. I think that boost is already over though, today was pretty slow.
Also my initial sales weren't very good so doubling them doesn't mean a whole lot, lol.
But it actually made me happy nonetheless, I honestly didn't expect much from another sale but I guess going under a buck changes things. Is this REPEATABLE? Probably not, I can't even go any lower on Steam, 90% discount is the max. This may have been the last gasp of sales for my game. I guess we will see!
