    Cortex Command is an unfinished game. There is little gameplay and buggy as hell. I'm disappointed because it was the only game I was looking forward to

    They state on their site that it's an unfinished game; what did you expect?

    They clrearly say that it's not finished, but that everybody who buys it now will have access to the final version, along with all the updates in between.

    Still, it's great to see linux with the greater average A little competition between buyers is always a good way for them to make more money.

    Problem is, if these bundles become too common, then everyone will start to de-value them in their minds, and say "oh I donated last time", and just contribute a penny or two to get their copy. Even with a few million pennies in their pockets (and consider that they only have <200K sales so far), that is still a far cry away from what they've made on HIB 1 and 2. And I think what they are making so far is... sufficient, but should really be more.

    I wish we could see the actual distribution of payment prices across users for each platform. We could draw meaningful sociological analysis from it. Hopefully they give us the data after HIB2 ends.

    This is one of the reasons that I tend to think they ought to flat-out turn this into patronage (i.e. "once we hit X amount, the games are freeware"). There are issues with that, but there are also issues with the current approach that would go away.

    You write so much but say so little.
