So, about the new Mary Jane and Keef game I'm making with Therm0. I'm about 50-60% done with the general production of the game (logic, assets, design...), and Therm0 already made like 90% of the soundtrack of the game. But the thing is that this is taking a LOT of work, and I'm a college student of a completely unrelated course. So I was thinking:

Can I and Therm0 even make money with this shit?
I mean, does anyone here even care about the game?
If you do, would you be willing to pay for it?
If I buy an ad in here for the game, will I have any chance of making money with it?
Should the game be free and with a donation link, or available for purchase?

I'm having some ideas, like adding a hub world, some slick cutscenes, some 3p1c bossfights. But before I do any of this I need to know if all of this work is even monetizable. If not, then I'll just crank out the game kind of half-assedly.

ALSO, THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST GAME OF ALL TIME
YOU'RE NOT READY TO EXPERIENCE THIS GAME
YOU WILL DIE IMMEDIATELY IF YOU PLAY THIS GAME

Hit up some sites about advertisements and strike up a deal. Could have a free version where an ad pops up at death, or a "pay me" button that disables the ads completely.

Sell for $2-3 on Steam. A ton of people definitely will buy it. The mistake would be assuming your target market is this board

Please do not put this on Steam, the last thing 420chan needs is more mainstream attention.

Also I will not pay for this because I refuse to subsidize your dogfucking habit, but I'm not averse to you trying to make a couple of bucks from your efforts.

There's a lot more to this game than meets the eye, shit's gets real weird. I don't know if I can say what's gonna happen towards the later half of the game because I don't want to ruin the fun. But it's going to absolutely desintegrate your brains immediately, y'all are NOT READY I'M WARNING YOU
THIS GAME WILL KILL YOUR WHOLE FAMILY
THE TWIST IN THIS GAME IS EXTREEEME

Let me know if you need help with Steam dev. It sounds more intimidating than it is. The guy who makes Glitch Pets also posts here. The key for a weird game is to keep that price tag low. Or release as early access with a low price so people will buy and review it. Then increase prices when you have more content. You can also give us free copies and we'll 10/10 it for ya

The last game was surprisingly interesting for a random free release. I can see potential. So I believe you when you say you have something interesting in store. As a fellow amateur game dev I will freely admit you have some talent

Put this on steam for like 2.99 and it will sell. Reach out to janky game youtubers like Greystillplays and give them free copies. Give us free keys and like >>745629 said we'll give it good reviews just to help out. This is exactly the kind of weird indy shit that people are buying these days, and I can see this game going viral if you use that kind of minimal marketing strategy.

Glitch Pets is kinda cool but it's still in the early stages. He's changing a lot of stuff. It's interesting though.

I'm on the 420 Discord as noneinterested. I don't check all the time and am in Peru at the moment but once I leave I and have my life more settled I'll check various channels more often.

To get on Steam these days you do have to lay out the $$ upfront (think it's a flat $100). But the idea is that you should be able to make that back pretty easily, especially if you keep your cost low. People will take a chance on anything if it's cheap. Your game will definitely have novelty value with stoners.

I'mma be honest. I don't want to play the game enough to pay for it. But if it runs okay, I'd give it a good review. So the game is worth nothing to me, but maybe the review is worth giving away a free key. Getting positive reviews and user feedback is a valuable thing for a game developer who is just starting out and wants to sell a game.

I've made a few games myself, and I always gave free copies to people I knew. It costs almost nothing for me, and I benefit from feedback.

This would be amazing if there was some way to make this online or in browser capable of being played by a few people in a competitive "last dog standing" obstacle course, where you each take a turn to try and see who can last the longest and make it across.

Give each dog a number and color to represent the player in a basic score keeping menu. Allow a view cam for each turn by a player to be viewed in real time.

I hope to see this get somewhere, it'd be fun to stream this for 420chan game sessions or just play with randoms. Divines smile upon ye, friends. Good fortune to you.

I cant be the only one who noticed Santos didn't make a thread last year.

I'd hate for this old /vg/ tradition to die but I'm a little shy and cant make threads. besides it's always been Santos which makes me worry if maybe we've been too naughty last year.

My point was yall are whining about alleged shitposters and shitting up the thread, whereas the shitposters in question have done nothing bad to this thread, and all the while we could just be discussing how to move forward with this game instead. If you're not interested, why keep spending time in the thread? Plenty people enjoyed the first and those that don't like it can look at threads about games they do like ffs.

So yes, getting back on track..

>>745817
Idk what he'll charge, but like someone mentioned earlier ITT, $2-3 seems fine to me. It'd be nice if we could get away with $4.20.
