Dear Dev, Please dont use Paradox as your publisher. Their pricing policy is atrocious. Recently citing the "possbile growth of" purchasing power, they increased the price of all games they published for Obsidian by almost 50% on steam. Pillars of Eternity went up from CNY 122 to CNY 185, the ultimate version costs CNY 412 ($99.99) from CNY 248($59,99), a 66% increase. https://steamdb.info/sub/107937/ And the price of tyranny went up as well, from CNY 122 to CNY 185, effectively rendering my 25% off coupon mote. The price hike is not limited to one region. It happened across a wide range of markets like Brazil, China, Russia, Turkey, etc. But in reality, the economy has not been kind for most people in these countries. I dont mind paying a bit more for your game if it is meant to be this way in the first place. I love your games from the days before obsidian even existed and I've purchased almost all of them on steam and promoted them among my friends actively. Be it Pillars of eternity, Tyranny or even classic games like Fallout: New vegas, etc. It is just not popular that the price of a game increases after one year without any real reasoning or action, since most game price would remain the same or even drop over time. I understand people need money to live or to make great games. and if need be, I will gladly support you guys in a new crowdfunding campaign. TL; DR: I fear the pricing policy of publisher like Paradox will actually hurt your sales.
