I don't get the pricing here

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?

  • I think I pick it up, when all 3 episodes are available in a set. ;)
  • Same. 10 bucks per episode, is a bit too much.
  • If I'd known the iPhone version existed, I might not have picked it up for PC/Mac to be honest :(

    Well if it helps anyone else, it's $9 (-10%) on Steam, which includes both versions.
  • Well, there's also the "playing it on a system that doesn't have a 45 minute gaming battery life" fee.
  • Hello,

    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.
  • At first I thought Tell Tale was selling the full series, but thanks to PetiteBiere I realized that Tell Tale is indeed selling only episode 1. Sorry I got confused because normally Tell Tale only sells full series, not this time.

    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.
  • Are you sure buying it off Telltale will give one the 3 episodes? I though 9.99 dollars was for the first episode only.

    You are correct, my fault, thank you for pointing this out, I have changed my post accordingly.
  • Yeah - price and bug issues aside I found this an enjoyable game but probably not worth the $10. First game I feel hasnt fully met TTG's usually high standards and good value
  • I was very interested in this game, and I was happy to read that it was ready for purchase in the TTG Store. But once I saw that 10$ price... Man, it's too high for a port of an Iphone game...

    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$)...
