Hy - first Post
My proposal would be to do the same as other developers (Mount&Blade). for ex. I've bought in 2005 the game - and played as beta until last year
when it was launched.
The Beta buyer had a discount (whole game - beta and finished product- 19 $) and I've tested and enjoyed more that several thousands
of hours of gameplay. (Currently I am a beta tester for their M&B: Warband).
The advantage for them was that they got a much needed capital for development.
The advantage for me was the opportunity to play a real nice game (and additional mods) for years.
Short, I would prefer a one time fee that would allow me to play the beta (in stead of writing an essay
) and then continue to play the game.
In this one time fee I would have access to only one kingdom / region / continent. For additional regions --- I could buy a card or something.
