I don't get the pricing here
edited May 2011 in Hector: Badge of Carnage
This just popped up on Steam and was the first I'd heard of it, but I've liked most of Telltale's stuff. Checking it out it seems to be a $3, year-old Iphone game they're now selling for $10 on PC? How does that make sense?

It really seems irrational to take 3 times the price of the IPhone version for PC. I'll wait for a sale and a reasonable price.
I will pick it up, but i will wait till its cheaper.
Well if it helps anyone else, it's $9 (-10%) on Steam, which includes both versions.
I just completed First episode and here is what i have to say.
First off i bought it via steam it's full price is €9.99 but with 10 % of discount it cost €8.99.
The thing is that this first episode is way too short for €8.99 even Poker Night at the Inventory i spent more time playing it and that game costs only €3.99.
And now when i saw final cut scene movie it shoved that next episode will come out in Fall? Are you really serious? I dont want to spend another 9.99 euros just for another short episode. Either you lower price of this game or make it much longer than this. Actually just look at this from different side Episode 2 should be free for those who bought it via steam because it's to expensive. I had my laughs but it's just not worth €10.
Thanks for reading.
Sorry Valve (you still need better customer service though, you are still pocketing too much money).
Though my Tell Tale launcher shows episodes 2 and 3, so it is possible we will get those for free, but I can't definitively say that won't happen on Steam either.
Regardless, you might as well buy it through Tell Tale so you aren't paying a middle man. Buying through Steam means that Tell Tale gets less money because Steam takes a cut (that they won't share with the public either----shady if you ask me, if you were being generous you would want to share your profit margins wouldn't you?).
If you buy through Tell Tale, they will get the money and be able to use it to make more games like Hector.
You are correct, my fault, thank you for pointing this out, I have changed my post accordingly.
If I ever buy it, it will be once I've seen there's a good price for it (such as a 3 episode bundle for 15$)...
