Episode 1 of the story mode is ready to be released and we are very excited! This will also mark the first public beta version.
We will start selling the story mode using a pay-what-you-want model, which is strongly inspired by the Humble Indie Bundle (which on the other hand was inspired by a World of Goo sale). After one week we will then set a fixed minimum price.
When you buy the game, you pay for the game as it is, but will also get all further episodes and updates for free. With each further episode, however, the minimum price will increase for new buyers of the game. The sooner you buy, the less you pay, hooray! This is similar to the Alpha-Beta-1.0 price increments of Minecraft.
Right now we are working hard on the presale website and we hope to be able to release Nikki and the Robots' story mode until mid February.
In the next post we will tell you some more details about episode 1, in which Nikki's great adventure begins to unfold.
