That is pretty dang pricey. Does it at least include all the expansions?

 

edit: Looks like it does. Huh, weird that the EE edition alone is only $20. Something wrong with that pricing system.

That actually makes me wonder if there isn't some sort of extra licensing cost at work there. Again, this is a special edition of a fairly niche product, so it's not like they are in it for the cash grab. 

 

Everyone knows you go mobile for that. :p

Yeah i'm pretty sure I bought BG1/2, Icewind Dale and Planescape Torment for about 5 quid each (3-4 dollars? 6 euro?) not they are charging 2-3 times that. I get it they had to put time/money into making the 'EE' versions but give people the option to get the original on its own. I feel like they are trying to erase the originals from history.

They have licensing fees to cover, I'd imagine.

EEs do of course have mobile versions? They even, technically, have in app purchases to go with the mobile versions.

 

(Bloody smileys, never sure if someone is being serious when they use them; and where has the classic :rage: smiley gone?)

Well, 'Realms Beyond: Ashes of the Fallen' and 'Pathfinder: Kingmaker' could both be considered as 'inspired' by D&D v3.5, which seems like what the OP is going for here. Possibly IWD2 and ToEE could be remade using the Realms Beyond toolset? I do know that somebody is working on an IWD2 remake in NWN2.

Also 'Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness'.

Wasn't one (or more) of the NwN premium modules made by Ossian? I imagine they want a good-sized cut of profits since they have nothing else going for them. So, once you pay Hasbro, then BioWare, then Ossian, then Steam, you're down to not very much at all left for Beamdog.
