 Price drop tomorrow
The great price experiment starts tomorrow. That is all.
Actually, it's not. I found out that there is a written counterpart to the video review done by Beefjack, and have added the link. What's interesting is that Charles McManamy tells the viewer that he is "tempted to buy" the game in his video review, and then discusses the full length game on his blog. That means he probably caved in and bought the game! Thanks Charles!
 Late review
j00ce, conspicuously secretive about his true identity, got it.

 I hear the guy from the vibrator game made 20 million
Somewhere this month, possibly tomorrow, the price of Revenge of the Evil Aliens will drop to 80 points, down from 200, to comply with the new pricing policy. Personally I find this price preposterous and insulting and was therefore planning on increasing it to 240 instead. However, this automatic price change allows me to circumvent the usual three month waiting time on changing the price of admission, a measure undoubtedly instated to prevent the system from collapsing into anarchy. This enables a unique experiment of rapid price iteration. With the game's sales having stabilized (at a rather pathetic level), I should be able to get a fair view of the effect of pricing on sales. Therefore: Revenge of the Evil Aliens has been 200 points for quite some time. It will be 80 points soon, and remain that way for a few weeks. It will then skyrocket to a whopping 400, where it will rest for at least three months.
The sales figures for the three levels will be interesting. Somehow I feel that lowering the price will have no effect while raising it will reduce sales significantly. But I'm a pessimist.
 Another interview for to read! And a contest!
Kris Steele, of xboxindies.com and developer of upcoming game Nasty, asked me some questions over msn and managed to knead the responses into something resembling coherence!
By way of mutual promotion, I have offered him two game codes for Revenge of the Evil Aliens, which can be claimed by no more than a simple message on twitter!
 A flick of the wrist, a bright spark, and then... nothing
I am writing this message from hostile territory: an unfamiliar OS where control is called command and is positioned where windows should be. This is necessary because my own PC has perished.
The game codes that were seeded have since blossomed into healthy reviews. I will share these with you now.
Joerg, or perhaps one of his lackeys, over at Homebrewwelt.com has penned a German review. If this frightens you, allow me to provide a hilarious translation.
Secondly, the up-and-coming review site game-pad.net has a dual-type review of which you should probably only read the second part.
 Stuff what is brewing
Apparently the only requisite for acceptance was to replace "Community" with "Indie". Subsequent to the name change a multitude of reviewers have crawled out of the woodworks. We are now all the rage!
Game Codes (perhaps not so much the name change but these have sparked all this interest) have been sent to various supplicants. Expect addenda to the Reviews section soon! In addition, I have a scheduled msn chat with xboxindies.com, which will undoubtedly feature more self-promotion.
In other news, I may have found a partner for a possible sequel! Wouldn't that be neat!
