So why has this game only been 10% off for 3 years now?
Like I would get it if it was 50% off but I feel like the asking price is a bit too much. Is this kind of like Factorero where the dev never wants sales on the game?

If you think 20 euros is too much you should try to find out why every player ever is saying that the game is worth the full price.

It'd be great if every game had a massive sale. I've got a few on my wishlist that have been out longer than Rimworld that still aren't on sale. Most games that do offer massive cuts are generally trying to reap the last bit of money they can before the game's outdated or otherwise not moving well. Still, there's a huge selection of games that can fit anyone's budget. No use worrying over a game that's too expensive.

Because this game has been only $15 for years as early access. Even back then, there was always the "why never on sale" complaints.

98% of people whom have bought the game and taken the time to post a review seem happy with it.

A quick look at your profile would suggest this is not the game for you, OP. With little more than 6 hours in similar games it is likely Rimworld will end up with a similar amount of time invested, and that is too short to experience much of anything this game has to offer even on a vanilla play through.

One day it may go on sale 50% off and you can finally buy it. Maybe it won't. Hang in there.

Because this game is just that freaking good, especially once you consider all the mod options.
Seriously, there is nothing like it.

making people pay full price means this game will ahve a series of DLCs for years to come

I also got to play the game like 5 years before you continuously so ups and downs.

It never goes on sale because there's NO competition. There's nothing out there that does what Rimworld does better with no cost to other areas.

EDIT:
The reality is waiting for a discount isn't always smart. Let's say one day 50% off comes, you stopped yourself from playing a game you are interested in for ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ years for $15-$17. Which kinda tells me you aren't that interested in the game and obviously the devs don't consider the sales of people not interested in their games very lucrative because the 50% sale hasn't happened.

because Tynan has a big ego and thinks his game is too good to go on sale

Nope! Feel free to try again, after a bit of Economics 101 =) .

Don't forget Steam takes a third of what you pay for themselves. So if a game doesn't cost much to begin with - and 20$ is considered cheap in industrial countries -, a developer simply can't affort to give huge discounts.
This may not be the case for this specific game, as Steam reduces their share as soon as a game made a specific amount of money. But keep that in mind for the future.

Also: Sales on Steam in general are crap ;) The times when you could get real big discounts are loooong gone. Almost none of my wishlisted games are getting discounts bigger than 10% - if at all.

No, it wasn't.
It was $30.
