    I recommend having a REAL website and not something "made with WiX" :D also $9.99 seems quite cheap compared to the amount you have, so unless you like making less money I'd raise the price.

    Thanks, Wix is quick, very easy to use and free, but it's true as soon as I've got some time, I'll make my own
    Talking about the price, I don't know, here's my rational behind:
    - most rpg games are around 6.99 and more
    - and also the price for xbox is 3euros, so I guess I didn't want to have a too big gap.
    - also it's only first chapter (out of 2), so I didn't want to make the 2games package something big...
    - finally the game aims at showing teh geex engine capability

    I hope it makes sense, otherwise it's too late, I had somes sales coming in already :)

    Well haven't played it so can't comment on length - maybe is shorter, but your statement "most rpg games are around 6.99" ? maybe you meant "most RPGMaker games...", but even in RPGMaker market there are plenty of games around $20 or more (check aldorlea for example).

    For Xbox indie games, the average price point goes from $1 to $10.

    Beyond that and you're starting to compete with "Ms. Splosion Man" ($10) style games. And budget wise, you just can't compete with that unless you have something very unique.

    Games tend to go on the cheap in the Xbox indie platform, but the exposure is decent if it's popular.

    Speaking as a gamer (taking my reviewer hat off), I wouldn't spend more than $5 on an Xbox indie game unless it had *significant* press and hot reviews on large sites. Now if you graduate from the Indie Games section to the arcade, you're talking about a higher price point. I would (still as a gamer), be willing to drop $10 on almost any game in there, up to about $25 if it had great reviews and good press.

    I personally feel that RPGMaker style games attract a younger crowd which has less money. But someone who has actually released an RPGMaker game and has some statistics could speak volumes more on the demographics of that subject that I.

    It's actually quite varied but if anything it attracts more the older players - and more females than males. It can help if said older players had the super nes and genesis and enjoyed the 16-bits rpgs too.
