Nope. We don't do sales or bundles.

Good to know, Steam should allow developers to enable a "never on sale" disclaimer for the store page. Factorio devs have the same policy.

Is this likely to change after ‘1.0’ release?

Maybe, but probably not.

Alright, thanks for letting me know :)

I already own the game, but just out of curiosity, why would you not have a sale or bundle?
[RUST]Grumplestiltskin  [developer] Apr 19, 2018 @ 4:05pm 
1. Encourages a behavior of people not pulling the trigger because they're afraid an upcoming sale they don't know about is coming out.
2. Irritates users that just missed a sale.
3. I don't believe in the culture of constant mass fire-sales of games that encourage a race to the bottom in lieu of fixing the massive content discoverability problem that exists.
4. Sales and bundles tend to cause huge 'spikes' in new users, which are difficult to serve/support compared to a more steady/regular new user rate, and I pride myself in being as responsive and helpful as possible for new users.
5. The game is already one of the most content-dense VR games on the market and I feel its worth $20 and feel no need or inclination to sell it for less than that.

Based on the amount of content, i would say for 20$ its always on sale :D
Stab Master Arson Apr 20, 2018 @ 5:31am 
Yeah Im not doubting the amount of content Im just broke and most VR games are way overpriced
[RUST]Grumplestiltskin  [developer] Apr 20, 2018 @ 10:13am 
I don't agree that they're overpriced, but I was broke for almost my entire life, so I get it.

Coming from someone that owns many vr games and over 1000 total games on steam, the "no sales ever" stops me from purchasing it. I have already spent $100+ this sale and plan on spending much more, so it is not a matter of money.

I am sure that this game is AMAZING and packed full of content, but the concept of never giving sales (on steam) just seems cold hearted and feels more like a "deal with it" attitude. There are plenty of fantastic games that are below their value and still give sales.

There is also the psychology side of sales. I buy a copy of a particular game (not naming it cause im not on that forum) every sale and give it to someone on the forums. I have spent over 200 now on a $25 game. I can't stress this point enough --->the game is on steam. So many people wait for sales to buy games regardless of having the funds for the full price game

Understand that i am not saying this is right or wrong, for that is not for me to judge, but i also doubt that i am the only one that feels this way.

That's your prerogative, but doesn't even slightly make me want to reconsider. The entire notion that a proprietor of any ware or product is _obligated_ to put said product on sale for a discount is preposterous. I also think calling that 'cold-hearted' is silly and a touch entitled.

I am clear about the fact that the game will not go on sale, so that people don't wait for it to go on sale. That people are _conditioned_ to wait for sales by Valve, because it makes _them_ more money is of no concern to me. The game is worth at least what it is selling for, and I have no inclination to sell it for less.

I have since purchased the game after making this thread and I can definitely confirm that it's worth the asking price. It's been my most-played VR game to date, surpassing even the (few) AAA VR games in terms of content and enjoyment. Highly recommended. Also look at it this way; if the game stays at the same price at all times, you can never feel burnt by buying it just before a sale or something.

that's very interesting and totally true Anton, I too have been in a place where I refuse to purchase a game until it came on sale, and knowing if a game will never go on sale will definitely help in the decision making rather than putting it in your long♥♥♥♥♥wishlist that you tend to forget about, H3 is already very affordable and to me worth more than that.

20$ for this game is a steal as far as i'm concerned.
