A Fan of the Steam Summer Sales? Yes.
I received this e-mail from a gamer a few days ago:
I have recently purchased your title from the Steam store, and wanted
to email you directly to thank you for participating in the Steam
Summer Sale event. As a consumer, I have limited entertainment
dollars, which means (especially for games) I have to be selective
about what I buy. The SSS gives me an opportunity to consider games I
never would have in the past, and that includes your game.
There has been some debate on if such deep discounts devalue games. I
don’t know if it changes consumer expectations of game pricing. I do
know, however, that I made a purchase because of the SSS that I had
not made prior to it, and had no intent to make. Now I own your game,
and I’m also keeping an eye on your company to see what you make next.
So again, thank you for participating in the Steam Summer Sale. It has
given me the chance to enjoy your work.
I’m a fan of Steam sales. Check out what I had to say about them here at the PA Report.
