I think that when Joshua said "blown up" he meant when you look at them on the screen.

But I'm really just posting to say how excited I am that Shouju Story is being printed.  yay!

Thanks folks, I'm really just hoping to have nice copies available for when I'm teaching it to friends. It's simple, short (just over 80 pages), and self-illustrated (by which I mean I tried very hard to do some good pictures for it). I'll be selling it for $10 on Lulu at the very start of the new year.

You're the mod of me, so tell me if this is off-topic, but...

why so frickin' cheap? Why not finish the game, make it sing, and sell it for a respectable amount? Under the Bed sells for $16. I bet it's not a worse game than Under the Bed.

Aren't you the guy that designed that Mountain Witch book I've been reading though? Boy did you make that sing! I'm not sure I can do the same with Shoujo Story though.

Also its a 40 minute game, I'm having great fun playing it but I don't want to exaggerate the content by sticking a high price on it.

I am that guy! Thanks!

There's an ulterior motive here, for me, by the way: I don't want people ever, ever thinking that Forge games are cheap. They're innovative, well-designed games. And instead of buying empty splatbooks, you buy a new game that does something new and, likely, what you want instead.

One way to do that is to charge more than people think they should cost. $10 is a pretty obvious price point. People will compare it to other things that cost $10.

$11 or $12, though? Nothing costs that amount, and people will buy it because it costs what it costs, and it's what they want.

At the very least, you won't lose any sales by increasing the price by $1. I'd bet that you could increase it 3 and you'd get the same number of sales with a 30% higher take.

Sigh ...

Yup, that's a threadjack, I think.

The topic of scanning line art has been discussed well, I think. So it's time to call this thread closed.

Best,
Ron
