From the candle-lit bastion of Freehold Games, hello! As we enter the high holy days of Ut yara Ux, as the sun approaches its high salt zenith, we have some news to share about Sproggiwood.
Sproggiwood has been out on iOS and Android for over a year now. Shortly after we released, I wrote a blog post reviewing our first 14 days of sales and explaining our decision to launch at $9.99. Our experience over the past year has reaffirmed the decision to go premium. Sproggiwood wasn’t a breakout hit, but it did well enough to support the argument that players are willing to pay a fair price for quality games.
Of course, whether we hit the right price point is up for debate. Over the past several weeks, we’ve been experimenting with a temporary price reduction to $4.99. Looking at the data, it turns out that we’re selling about twice as many units at half the original price. Given that it’s a wash from a revenue perspective, we decided to fall back on our mission statement as a studio and go with the option that gets twice as many people playing Sproggiwood.
So, we’re permanently dropping the price on iOS and Android to $4.99. AND… for the duration of the Steam Summer Sale, we’re dropping the price to $2.99, the lowest it’s ever been! Here’s the price breakdown (USD) for Sproggiwood and Caves of Qud on all platforms over the next few weeks.
|Steam Summer Sale (6/23 – 7/4) price||Regular price (7/4 and on)|
|Sproggiwood on iOS||$2.99||$4.99|
|Sproggiwood on Android||$2.99||$4.99|
|Sproggiwood on Steam||$7.49||$14.99|
|Sproggiwood Enlightened Edition on Steam||$8.99||$17.99|
|Caves of Qud on Steam||$8.99||$9.99|
|Caves of Qud on iOS||One day?||Maybe?|
So if you haven’t played Sproggiwood, the time is now, friend. Thanks to everyone who’s already supported the game and shared it with their friends. Be on the lookout for our weekly Caves of Qud patches while we’re in Early Access on Steam.
