Hello,

I really liked Nagai Yamiji  and would have bought this one to support you if you're planing to make another platform/action.

However i couldn't help but wonder why Bound : Satori cost 3.00 usd here and 10.00 on dlsite ?

Dlsite has a really high commissioner fee. They usually take somewhere around 75% of all game profits unless you charge more for the game (  like, above $10).  So they probably upped the price to match it if I were to guess. Even selling at $10 they'll only receive 45% of the profit. That's why most people tend to sell on Itch first since their fees are far less severe.  

This is a really high(shocking even) number and would explain a lot. 

Yep!  DLSite takes a pretty penny for sure, but it's worth it for the extra reach to foreign markets.  If you're curious, you can take a look at their pricing model here: http://www.cf-dist.com/

So as that page says, selling the game at 1000yen nets me 450yen after DLSite/CuriousFactory take their cut.  I'd like to put it up for cheaper, but any lower and the percentage I get becomes smaller and smaller, and idk I already kinda dislike having a minority share of the profits as is.

Needless to say,  I definitely try to encourage people to purchase my stuff here lol

Oh, and I do want to make another platformer at some point!  I'm awful at being productive, so I'm sorry to say it'll likely be some time, but thank you so much for your support.  It definitely helps keeping me moving forward, even if it's at a snail's pace.
