The 'Unrefined' Chosen Ones
« on: November 12, 2012, 07:43:27 am »
Warning: The following suggestions may be insultive, and should they be, you ought not to have read them.
...But please, do go ahead and read them nevertheless.



Pre-purchase versions

The top priority of the campaign should be to make money; the donations themselves are just too little to cover up everything. Since there are some idiots who are too impatient to wait for the next version, why not create a payment system to allow these hasty fellas to satisfy their addiction by pre-purchasing the versions in advance?

Say, with 0,50$ charged for every minor and 2,50$ for every major version, a decent profit could be made. These versions should then be released officially a week after the pre-purchase versions to encourage everyone to buy them. Those few who actually wouldn't pre-purchase could then be named as "Free to Play" -players.

Automated help service

We all know it; the campaign is too hard to be comprehended for an averagely intelligent player. Therefore, it's constatly seen as a stream of help requests that consume our valuable time. There has got to be a solution to reduce the numbers of these damn folks. And here it is:

Automated aka bots as the help service. When the player in need of help asks a question, the bots automatically redirect them to pre-written answers and solutions, so all there has to be done is to write the answers beforehand. And should there be questions that are not already answered, well, who cares? It happens so seldom anyways, given those players.

Replay value

One very simple way to increase the game's replay value by A LOT is to make the players farm more and more. It doesn't need much of a description here; raise the item and recipe prices by 50 times to effectively increase players' replaying of the campaign by 100 times (since they want to get two units of each item, one to be used on business days and the other to be used on holidays).

Fly on, Michael! ;) And hope you didn't take it serious, reader.

My aim will always be a high quality campaign and that is why this is taking long. Inventing everything by myself takes a lot of time. Also as there hasn't been many donations I'll also have to get some money while I'm studying. Meaning a lot less time for the game.

Last few months things haven't really went so quickly forward, compared to Summer for example. However, many things have went forward: there are only few texts left to do, I've started my book, blog and I've started creating the complete universe of the story.

Can you create those bots? Hah, seems too hard for me.

About replay value: More is about to come. More items, abilities and most of all: the interludes. You'll need to gather enough Game Points to see interludes which reveals a lot more about the story.

Uh...another parody? If it isn't serious at all, why is it posted here? ... Well, it doesn't seem unrelated though.

I see. So you posted a example of "nothing related to the topic at all, just some random stuff". If it isn't this then i don't know.

Sub:the "Uh..." I was more like i was uncertain about something so i was afraid to speak. Answering correctly your question:

Uh...another parody?

What? Is it boring or why? ;p

Answer: i think it's "Why".

Plant yourself on the point, mister! And honestly, GIMP 2 is one versatile option to resize your images. It's much prefered to suit an image's size depending on the case, instead of being lazy and screwing up something.

Answer: i think it's "Why".

Well, come on now, what's become of that option? ;p

And I've been to the real arctic. Great, it's blurry. But what does it have to do with this?

Looks like somebody is trying to corrupt this thread.

Oh, no-no-no, you don't want to be talking about 'doubt'. It is a pest and thanks to your will shall be born concrete if there's someone afraid of it. Keep your dreams at bay.
