Pocket Gamer interviews Dave About In-app Purchases
Out of the top 25! Nooooo! Well, we knew this day would come! Let's hope we get a similar resurrection as Flick Fishing or Doodle Jump, but the app store is hard to predict!
So, I mentioned in the last post, we are working on new functionality for Pocket God and since Dave let the cat of the bag, I will tell you, we are still going to give updates for free, but start customization as an in-app purchase. Our idea is that we will create "custom packs" for certain PG elements. And each will cost 99 cents. That way, we aren't going to start charging for updates that fans expect for free, but we can continue to develop PG and it make sense for us fiscally. At least that's the theory. It all depends if people actually buy the customizations! The first element we are working on is the T-Rex..and I'm guessing when people see it, they will want it!
Hopefully fans who are used to getting all new content for free will see that we are trying to make PG development make sense for US, but not burn THEM. Pocket Gamer interviews dave about in-app transactions here:
