Thought it might be a good idea to outline the current platforms and release deadlines, because apart from inside my own head and a poorly updated spreadsheet on dropbox, it’s not publicly out there.

Gameolith is a good platform for indies, if not largely underused by both developers and players. With Gameolith I can set my own prices dynamically and modify the discount amount whenever I feel like it. With that in mind, I’ve been considering trialing a discount period where every interval someone buys the game I add 5% discount, every interval someone doesn’t buy the game the discount goes down by 5%. Set the interval at every hour between 2PM and MIDNIGHT over a weekend Even if it doesn’t work, it’ll be an interesting trial to run. Thinking I might run that trial weekend 9th and 10th of November, but I’m sure I’ll post more as it happens.
