Everyone who purchases the game from our new store will pay the same 29.99$ - including Europeans.

As more and more retail stores sell DoF boxed version - we only thought it fair that our own developer store will offer a slightly better price - so that buyers who know about DoF enough to check out our website get this small bonus.

And just as any game - DoF`s price will decrease eventually, and yes - there will be a time when we have both premium and free (trial) version. Perhaps down the road the game might even become free to play with only micro-transactions to support it. But for now - we are keeping the price at 29.99$ - with only a quick 1 week promotion with lowered price.

I'm not real fan of microtransactions system, tbh. There should be some trial mode, so everyone can test the game, and if they like it - 25-30$ isn't so expensive.

wow is come out over 4 years ago, and have monthly fee
dof is come out about 1 month ago....
i know how economy work, and this is not a good way

As i said, WoW is only an example.
If company thinks that with lower price of game they can attract more players, they will do so and i can't see anything strange or bad in it. Let's take Steam for example also, every day there is some special event when you can buy game for lower price... And, it's normal. You were playing this game for weeks/month before i will be able to play it. But, cause of that you paid it 5 more. Seems fair to me.

News Store is online, micro-transactions as well. Although it might take 2-3 hours for changes to our website to be visible by everyone. http://store.reverieworld.com/

this could be right in normal situation
but in THIS situation we have a work in progress game, with more bugs than players,
atm we are playing somewhat like a beta, so how can u believe ppl can be attracted to pay for a beta?
if we could create a demo it could interest ome new player decided to invest into this project, but imho there is too much faith into this project and into players interest about it
dont believe this game is so innovative, and without similar...

i just wanna do an example
im a heroes of newerth player
i tried beta and i was exalted about game, so i prepurchased it for about 20 euros
and now i bless that shop, because game is constantly updated and really bugless, with a really pro staff
and im not playing anything more, also if there is a cash shop really expensive.
now this game had difficulty because league of legeds come out free and spread was hiding hon, so they created a free account user option, really complex, recreating entirely the game, and i have to be honest, ppl into game is exploded, really a boom of new subscription, because ppl had possibility to try for free also hon and made comparison btw lol and hon, and its so obvious hon is totally better, so ppl preferred purchase instead play free on a clone game

in this case there are only ideas and projects, but nothing concrete
in this situation we must improve spread with more courageous economic politics, but seems reveries cannot support this, probably budget is really close to crack, or bosses dont want to risk

i feel an epic fail , but i hope to be wrong

don't forget you're comparing 2 different games. League of legends/heroes of newerth are dota type games, while DOF is a builder game with pvp and other stuff.Dota games will always have less bugs because they are easier to work on since you pick a hero and go kill. It's the reason why there are tons of game similar to dota aka Heroes of newerth,avalon heroes, league of legends, etc.

Hi,

I just bought the game plus a booster pack and i'm downloading the installer right now.

Only thing is the download doesn't seem to go faster then 30kb per second.
Do i really have to wait more then 24 hours to finish downloading?
I can't belief this is normal as you stated downloading is now 3x faster... did it used to be 10kb per second?
