The creator of Iron Lung advised everyone who does not agree with the new price of the game, to engage in its piracy
Iron Lung is a short horror game that has become a hit, especially on YouTube. Recently, the Content creator of Markiplier said that he was releasing a film based on the game, which caused even greater interest. However, the game developer took advantage of this situation to increase the price on Steam.
Despite a slight increase in prices from 5.99 to 7.98 US dollars, many fans considered that the developer took advantage of the excitement to raise the price. Commenting on this situation, the developer said that he believes that the game corresponds to a new price, and to those who do not agree with this, he offers to use the pirate version.
Since people are constantly trying to get to the bottom of me about this. I repeat, the price of Iron Lung has risen, because the game costs 8 bucks, and I want to take 8 bucks because I want to earn more money. If you do not agree with this price, I don’t need your money. Go and download a pirate or something like that".
In response to users’ statements that he does it just for the sake of money, the developer does not deny this, since the creation of games is his work, and he expects that he will be paid for this. Whether gamers agree with its price is another story.
"He does it just for the sake of money". Yes, don’t tell me, I make games to make money. If I did not want to earn money on them, I would not take money for them. I like the business model: "I want money, so I do something that, in my opinion, costs money, and you pay me this money, get a product, and we are all happy". That’s all. There is nothing complicated or hidden here.
If you think that the things that I do are not worth the money that I take for them is fine. Do not buy them, or wait for a big sale, or go cunningly and get them for free, or something else, and please tell me about this so that I can adjust the prices that I will launch the next.
This will be the last thing I wanted to say about the change in the price of Iron Lung. In the future, I do not plan to adjust the price after the release, so I hope that it is no longer necessary to discuss this.
