Parkies has a lot of content that we could scale nicely during the Kickstarter when doing it in bulk (lots of tiles). But having to do it on a one of basis is much more expensive. That's the difference. I think I've only sold 1 copy since the KS due to the price.

Interestingly in this and the last episode you said that very few people will buy a game over 50 Dollars. Yet Parkies is 75 Dollars (the exact number you used as to explain that nobody will pay for an indie Game ^^) I am curious why it is that expensive? I assume it is because of Alishas Artwork but nonetheless I'd like to know. Sadly with customs and shipping this would be 120-130 Dollars and I am not willing to pay that much even if I love the Game/artwork/everything about Parkies. I pity myself for missing the kickstarter. I would have paid 50 plus EU friendly shipping :(

Anyway, keep up the great work. I am still up for my first Design but someday I will finish one. ^^
