Its not about the disc. Its about paying respect to all who are involved in making the game.
I just ordered my copy

I dont expect a cheaper game even if its put up as digital download only.
I dont mind a boxed version, I just got one for Tanks Furry.
BUT I would prefere to get a digital download option even at the same price as the boxed one.

Reasons why I dont like boxed games anymore;

1) Waste of time
2) Waste of materials when there are digital alternatives
3) Pollution thru shipping

Dont get me wrong, I REALLY appriciate the effort going into this product, so take my comments as a POSITIVE feedback.
Also, I appriciate the work from the artists that design the boxed art (if there are any). But they can put that artistic effort into high resolution wallpapers or just graphics within the game.

Again, I would accept the same pricelevel for digital download.

Hope to see more productions from you!

Ok, even though I disagree with your decision to not have a digital download I'll support you anyway

Purchased, but it's getting shipped to one of my EAB friends who can keep the box / packaging etc... and will just give me a copy of the files

One rule the game creators should remember
"The game is well worth the price only when the gamers will say Yes it is worth."

Perhaps when comparing to something like Dragon's Lair, fancy flight simulator or RPG with around 10,000 disks...

but the majority of Amiga games were around the 30euro mark back then.

I remember powder sold for 20 uk pounds of 1998 on CD but in this actual market a Tanks Furry price is IMO the best cost/value ratio;

Tanks Furry isnt that complex presentation-wise and were producing in Germany. Our products are professionally made and the CD is pressed!

If I had to compare it to such games as X2, and the point is that the authors do play jokes.

pressed CDs are cheaper than printed and recorded..
in poland for 100 eur you can get over 2000 pressed CD with CMYK label..

our product is also profesionally made by CDLabel, and you can choose floppy disk as addition.

7,5 eur price include 23% tax and 18% income tax.. if you wanna know

sorry for my poor english

btw nice to see another new game

You shouldnt feel the need to defend yourself, espsially by comparing yourself to other developers in this small community. It leads to nothing good.

Let the game speak for itself, and those that enjoy your style will purchase it.
As Ive said before, style and design is a highly subjective aspect of game evaluation, and you simply cant make everyone happy.
Some might give this game a thumbs down, but end up loving your next game.
That has surely happened to me concerning other gameproducers and their series of developments.

I know I look forward to playing Reshoot, AND future games by you!

Glad youre also offering great Amiga stuff.

Hey!

Currently is 960x600 @ 16bit the most useful resolution performancewise for Vampire equipped A600. Im sure that will change to higher as the core is updated.

I guess some versions for the customers will stick to non-vampire, so some high res 16 or 32 color versions?
But I think that its mostly Vampire owners that use wallpapers, and with the massive amount of orders for it, I think catering for 960x600 and higher will be most useful.

Enhancing a game for Vampire is a lot (!) of effort. Before thinking about something like this, Id first like to see if the community really wants and supports games for Classic Amiga with more than just words. If yes, the possibilities for enhanced versions might be endless :-)

I wouldn't expect to get rich in the Amiga market; It seems that 150 + copies is the upper ceiling for sales, judging by pre-orders for tales of gorluth for example, then again depending on quality and availability for a wide variety of Amiga systems perhaps that number could increase.

What are the sales numbers for Tanks Furry? Does anyone know? Granted, the cheap price made it an impulse purchase for even the poorest of souls, like me! I'll have to wait for a while before I can buy reshoot.

I might be way off, but with the Vampire selling like hot cakes, there SHOULD be a nice number of people going from semi dormant, to active again.

Wether or not that translates into gamesales, thats another question.

I think if game was expanded to support RTG so it can be run in say 16 or 24bit modes then it would probably give Vampire owners something extra over the AGA version and might be tempting to get some new software for the new hardware.
(I hope Vampire owners are willing to spend a few bucks on software , not just hardware.)
