$1 Pre-Orders Available From Later Today
Afterfall InSanity, the post-apocalyptic indie survival horror title from Polish studio Nicolas Games, will be launching on 25th November with an imaginative - if incredibly ambitious - sales model. Pre-Orders will only cost $1, which will include the full game, soundtrack and even a mention in the credits if you choose to register!
This is where things get a bit more interesting. Nicolas Games are aiming for ten million downloads - and will be distributed on Torrent sites once this figure is reached. If this isn't reached, however, the revenue will be donated to charity. It's a brave and slightly confusing double or nothing situation, and we'll keep you posted.
The pre-orders will be going live later today - and I'll stick it up as a deal of sorts.
From the press release: Once the company's target goal is achieved Afterfall: InSanity will be distributed among the p2p (peer 2 peer) networks such as Torrent. Additionally, 10% of the revenues will be donated to one of the largest charity organisations in the world. However, if the number of pre-orders does not reach the 10 million copy sales target, then the revenue collected will be donated to the charity in its entirety. Besides the game itself, players will receive the soundtrack as an added bonus, and those who will register their order will immortalized as part of the game by having their names included as part of the credits.
Nicolas Games is throwing down the gauntlet to the whole industry.
As an independent distributor we can afford to try starting a revolution. Being absolute game fanatics ourselves, we want to prove that high-class games do not have to be associated with high price tags. Our goal is to attract players from all over the world and offer them a great deal; if we can get 10 million people to buy our game we will sell it for just 1 dollar. I strongly believe that this news will electrify the whole market and together we will set a new record. - Tomasz Majka, the CEO of Nicolas Games
