Probably mentioned, but let us name prisoners. Just in a text file so arriving prisoners get a name and we can see famous people and real life friends show up to serve their time. This could be in addition to how Introversion does it now so that people that didn't want to make a list or their list w...

I think they should let us name the prisoners. Old games like XCOM let you do that. Let us type up a text file with a bunch of names and randomly choose names from that list for prisoners in addition to however Introversion does it right now for people with short lists or no lists. It would be very ...

I would like to apologize. Never meant to get into a big fight over something so simple. I should have just said I think it's too expensive (for some people - not me) and left it at that. It is a great game and can't wait for a finished product. It is kinda buggy, but that's to be expected. Maybe I ...

I offered feedback that I think their price is too high considering the market, the gamers, the state of the game, etc. Just a few things, 1. Price too high considering the market? I think not. The average price in the market is about on par with $30/£20 even for "indie" games Minecraft, ...

Masochist you gotta work on your reading comprehension. You are way in over your head. I support the devs. I offered feedback that I think their price is too high considering the market, the gamers, the state of the game, etc. Take off your shock collar for a second and realize that a criticism is n...

Alright then, looks like we are playing nice (or nicer). I will just leave this here - http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2012-10-01-oddworld-spending-USD30m-on-games-not-ferraris-and-private-jets So this doesn't get twisted into an EA thing - This article talks about how in the 'olden' days a de...

Harhar - You guys done rubbing oil on each other? Back to the game. After having played it. I say if you have the money it's a buy. It isn't worth $30 yet, but a nice game. The people that cannot buy it at this point - Dwarf Fortress is king - Nothing close. And it's free. If you like it consider a ...

And ironically such legal loopholes only work in parts of the world - The EU have protection from such ludicrous attempts at bypassing basic salesman/customer loopholes. You've shared your opinion that you find it too expensive - you may leave now. Haha, it's pretentious dicks like you that make su...

If you think $30 is too much...don't buy it and quit whining...jesus... I simply see people that assume and expect an "indie" game to be $20 or less...no excuses... ZOMG they chose $30 for various reasons over $20! they must be evil...might even be the next EA! Get over yourselves, save s...

I think it is a cop-out to say $30 keeps the great mass of undersireable gamers away. No one from IV has made that statement. I believe that the official party line is that it keeps IV in business until they finish the game. xander "We want fewer people who are more involved," Chris Delay...

Well, even though I think $30 is high, this is an alpha which should be a free demo (at least to loyal customers), I went ahead and bought (preordered) the game. I think very highly of Introversion and own multiple copies of all their games. I think this could have been handled differently. I think ...

This link says 1000 sales and raised over $100,000. That's an average of $100 per copy?? That must be some very generous fans.

I will buy it later for full price because of who the devs are. I just don't want to pay $30 for the privilege of playing an alpha that admittedly is missing features and has bugs in the features that are included. If the price was $20 or less it would be instant buy (something in how my brain works...
