Microtransactions comming to Steam?
I tryed this one on android and uninstalled it right from main menu. There are price tags even on scenario selection.

I would pay few euros for game like this, but only for full game with one, final price. Will be this thievish system used even on PC?

Hey Kozec! As part of the development team, I want you to know that the game will be micro transaction free. If you have any suggestions, let us know!

Well, I cannot say that I'm not surprised. But it's pleasant surprise :)
Thanks for Your answer.

@Hinsonator and Mr. Hipster: He was referring to The Sandbox specifically.

In other news, I'm excited to hear that this game is coming to Steam, and even more excited that it doesn't have any iap. I deleted this off of my iPhone after a week or two due to running out of free things to do. I just want to let the devs know that I will be buying this game because of the lack of iap.
thanks :)

I posted No. While there are F2P games with micro transactions on steam, those games in question are full of gameplay without having to spend a dime. Fully fleshed out games with depth. I played this game on my iphone, and immediately deleted it once I saw how much I'd have to pay to actually play it.

I can't support a game that has been "Published" already by both Apple/Android in steam's greenlight system. This goes against the spirit of Greenlight on Steam.

Judging from the previous comments, I'll skip this one. I've wasted enough of my life on games that just keep asking for money instead of providing a fun experience.
