99 cents sells iPhone games short
President of Capybara Games, Nathan Vella, has stuck his neck out by saying that the 99 cent price point on the iPhone is selling indie developers short.
Vella, speaking to Gamasutra, said that the trend for pricing games on the App Store at 99 cents was making it difficult for indie developers to stay afloat.
He said: "Since it became 'expected' by consumers, it forces a lot of developers, specifically indies, to devalue their game and significantly increase the number of sales needed for developers to get back their investment."
Capybara Games has recently made the jump to the big time, translating their iPhone hit Critter Crunch to the PS3 as a PSN title. They have also just recently finished Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes on the DS.
