Thanks for the question! I'm sorry that the price-tag gave you that impression. I honestly have been struggling with putting any kind of price on the experience, and have grappled with the issue for months whether it should be free, whether it's too much. But thank you for your response. And interesting, I'll try to describe the experience more as well.
I have lowered the price to $7.50 USD and will try to make a quick free trial/demo version of the game so that people can dip their toes in without committing to a price.
As crazy as this may sound, I really am not in it for the money. I just sincerely want to put these feelings + this type of gameplay out there and see if it resonates with anyone.
Haha seriously thanks though, I'm definitely real beginner as well.
