A local multiplayer shooter
I'm not happy with it any more, so I "blocked" future purchases
If you are not satisfied anymore, why don't you allow people to do get it for free? That is better than nothing, if you are not going to update it. Fo example I would like to see it now that I'm curious.
It wouldn't be fair to those who purchased the game already.
In fact, I was selling this game with an increasing pricing scheme, no discounts, and the price would go up for each sale. It started at 1€ and went up 0.01€ whenever someone bought it.
Also, if I'm not happy with a game, why would I put it in more people's hands?
No, instead I'll finish this next game I'm working on and release that instead.
Are you afraid of judgement? You remind me of a friend of mine who was ashamed of her own paintings, and didn't want anyone to see them: but indeed they were beautiful.
No, I'm fine with judgement.
I'm just not happy accepting money for something I consider sub-par, and I don't want to give away for free something I once sold, devaluing the trust and support of my customers.
I make plenty of free games (I should upload more to Itch.io, but I don't have the time), and I'm working on some commercial projects, they'll be up when I feel happy accepting money for them.
