    At least they've made the decision to not purchase much easier.

    No wonder I saw the games looked more expensive for yesterday's sale.

    Surely they're at the point where telltale is - engine built, just churn out artwork but re-using the same engine each time. So effectively, once they've built the next generation engine with our money, they'll continue to do the same thing - except it'll be nearly all profit at that point?

    What a rip-off. At least make the new games more expensive and leave the old ones alone. What kind of developer actually makes their old games MORE expensive.

    Wasn't really my cup of tea anywhy since I don't really buy easy quicky completions. This just makes it even less likely I'd buy them XD

    Brazil took the biggest hit... from $5 to $21... I always bought them on sales. Pretty games but never felt a 3 hour point and click was worth $10. $15 even less so. Now $7,50 on a 50% sale? They better bring some 75% sales for me to buy them, way too many other games on the market to spend money on. smile

    They were already to expensive for me at $10 canadian, now they are $20. Unfortunately they just sealed the deal on me not buying another one of their games.

    Exactly what I was thinking. The games that are currently available have been released as a final product therefor meaning that the costs for staff and other expenses going forward does not have anything to do with these titles - Sounds like a whole load of bullshit to me and clearly somebody didn't think their statement through.

    I bet they thought they could do it and not get noticed, then being in the sale made people realise and they hd to knock out a quick “reason”

    It's a shame, I really enjoy these games when I want to play something easy to unwind. I was so looking forward to getting the older games I was missing when I got a notification about these sales yesterday, but then I saw the price hike. Not a real 'sale.'

    I can maybe understand it for new titles going forward, but retroactively up selling their older titles leaves a bad taste in my mouth. So disappointed about this.

    Development costs ??? You mean porting costs right ? ... Lol im def not paying anything under ten for these games unless it's 50%off ...bad move! Also there's no justifying raising the price of games already released .. very very poor.

    Talk about shooting yourself in the foot. Less and less people will be buying the 'more and more adventure games' they churn out facepalm

    Games should get cheaper over time not more expensive.
    The sooner these guys go under the better it will be for the consumer.
    I'm always willing to help other players boost achievements even if I already have them. Just ask!

    Lol i saw the sale prices and thought it was a mistake. Then i just laughed. I stopped buying them when they would go on sale for 7$, because i still have two or three i haven't had time to start yet, but that was definitely closer to what they're worth. I'm not paying 15$ for them now. What a joke.
