    what's the problem? don't you understand how inflation works? you should be angry at whoever's inflating the money supply, not at a game developer (or anyone else trying to sell something in this fucked up economy)

        Don't know who told you that but reality says otherwise. If you buy them in the inflated currency yes it does. Inflation is an increase in money supply not the cost of individual goods.

        Retard.

        It's a 7 year old game. You might have just woken up from a coma but the rest of us havent. Plus it's a DIGITAL game. There is no manufacturing left in order to adjust for the cost of production.

        Everything is a conspiracy if you're retarded.

        the product is already made and it does not produce any extra costs.
        just a garden gnome trying to wring more money out of people who actually suffer from inflation.
        If you want more money, make more games.

        Wow a lot of people in this thread who don't understand basic economics at all. I'll give you a hint: the price of a video game bears no relation to the cost to develop it. If this scares and confuses you, try reading a book sometime

                Fucking garden gnomes will never put the game on discount, but will do shit like this.

                good, just lower the price of the game when it gets old
                on steam anything made before 2016 is a ripoff because it goes on 80% discount twice per year and at that point you're just getting ripped off if you buy it at the "normal" price and they should really just lower the regular price instead

      It literally *is* a premium product. Factorio is still receiving updates that expand modding capabilities; that fix bugs; that improve performance; etc. The reason Factorio is rightfully affected by inflation is that there are still ongoing development costs and e.g. salaries being paid, attached to the game. It's not triple-A trash that was cut loose and sent drifting after its two-week launch window by an irresponsible publisher with total lack of aftersales care, like EA or SquareEnix.

            do you know what the yearly rate of inflation is anon? At least in the US, it's around 5-7%. EVERY YEAR. The amount they charged 7 years ago LITERALLY DOESN'T GO AS FAR as it did back then.

                the price of a shirt or furniture increases every year due to inflation too. They're "already made", so what's the problem? They should charge the same price for it in perpetuity right? Of course fucking not, you're just baiting at this point

                Clothes literally rot. Digital games need to be constantly patched for updated hardware, servers need to be paid for to allow the game to be downloaded, fees are paid to store fronts like Steam, and the energy costs for running their servers. That doesn't include all the bureaucratic systems they have to pay for, like accountants, lawyers on retainer, etc.

              By that logic, rereleases of games made in the 90s should cost over $100 to account for inflation.
              Daggerfall should cost at least $110 instead of being free to play.

              They covered development cost long ago, the money they spent to develop the game doesn't take into account inflation 6 years later, so the price shouldn't either.
              It's the only game so far that had its retail price increased over the years.

              And yes zoomers are getting garden gnomeed beyond belief. PC games used to cost about $40-50 in the 90s, and development was far, far less expensive and lengthy. Gaming never tried to adjust itself for inflation until this year, despite longer development cycles and tons of money spent on making games.

These triple A publishers hire teams of analysts going through sales data to determine exactly with how much they can get away with. The box price, the deluxe edition price, the date when the game will go on a sale and the percentage, they got that shit down to a science and the Factorio dev is an autistic idiot who has absolutely no clue about any of this so he is leaving millions of $ on the table, ironically due to his own greed in an attempt to make more money.

        his game doesn't exist in a vacuum dipshit. 30 dollars doesn't go as far today as it did 7 years ago, that's an objective fact. The fact that you're too dumb or naive to realize that speaks volumes.

        >virtually no other indie dev feels the need to do this. Why is he special?
        ...because he can? If any other indie game were in the position he is (i.e. made a good game that people actually want to play) then they would do it too. Not only because it makes financial sense, but because it makes common sense.

            if you believe that, then it sure as hell didn't get less valuable either. Which it would've been if they didn't increase the cost and kept it at 30 dollars. Due to the rate of inflation, the "value" of the game has been steadily decreasing YoY

          no they wouldn't you idiot. Factorio isn't even that successful compared to stuff like Stardew Valley, Hollow Knight, Valheim etc. This developer is just a combination of extremely greedy and very stupid because he doesn't understand how demand works. After 2-3 years, the vast majority of people who were going to buy your game at full price have already done so. The only way to expand your audience after that point is to reduce the price and / or put your game on sales.

He manages it, he decides the risks he takes (and rising the price of the game is also a risk, it should generally decrease sales, and if it decreases sales enough he'll have lost money in the end. Why do you think you should be able to run someone else's business? Do YOU know what challenges e faces?

                I'm not saying what prices should be running, I'm saying you're not the one to decide, gay. Unless you go out there and make a game yourself, in which case I'll defend your right to set your prices. At worst I'll say it's a bad idea and that you're losing profits in the end or something.

      Of course anon. Remember how all those devs halfed the price of their new releases because of record low interest rates and government injected cash.

    Reading this thread makes me realize just how shitty gamers really are. The devs should have just sold the game for $60 originally and just put it on sale for $30 every so often. You retards will buy anything as long as its on sale, but not when its already half the price of a AAA release. Steams "Sale culture" really ruined the entire market.

      most people would never touch a game like this for $60. It's not just Steam sale culture, you have sales everywhere. Amazon has sales of physical copies. Microsoft and Sony have sales on their stores. Brick and mortar stores have sales and frequently put old games into bargain bins etc. It's simply not normal to sell a 7 year old product for a higher price than at its release. Literally no one does this.

    Software programmers are workers just like other engineer/scientist types, they have to get a degree for it, spend 8 hours a day in an office working, that office is physical space so the owner has to pay rent, electricity, heating etc, the computers aren't that expensive but the license fees on some software can be, although game devs would probably need rigs with very expensive GPUs to test their games.
    If anyone here doesn't know, writing the software is not that hard but verifying it, making sure there wasn't any mistake in the reasonning, requires a lot of time, there are automatic ways to do it but even those have to be verified. It's possible to spend a whole week just trying to figure out a small problem which only becomes obvious after you figure out what it is.

    Richest 1% bag nearly twice as much wealth as the rest of the world put together over the past two years
    Published: 16th January 2023
    Super-rich outstrip their extraordinary grab of half of all new wealth in past decade.
    Billionaire fortunes are increasing by $2.7 billion a day even as at least 1.7 billion workers now live in countries where inflation is outpacing wages.

    A tax of up to 5 percent on the world’s multi-millionaires and billionaires could raise $1.7 trillion a year, enough to lift 2 billion people out of poverty.

    The richest 1 percent grabbed nearly two-thirds of all new wealth worth $42 trillion created since 2020, almost twice as much money as the bottom 99 percent of the world’s population, reveals a new Oxfam report today. During the past decade, the richest 1 percent had captured around half of all new wealth.

          not really.

      why the fuck should the customers give a shit about how many salaries he has to pay? The Ubisoft Assassins Creed team is notoriously large, like 1000+ devs. Should an Assassins Creed game be 10x more expensive than a game made by 100 devs?

      it's not even that, it's just basic logic. Price of inflation goes up, value of dollar goes down. Price of game increases to account for both factors. Kinda funny that the fucking Factorio dev of all people would get so much shit for following this basic thread of logic

      Sales sell you a lot of copies in the short term but decrease your future sales at normal price significantly, especially when your game has already reached "total coverage" on Steam for your genre, which Factorio must be pretty close to reaching due to how successful the game is. If they run sales they make more money for a few years but then they'll just run out of people to sell the game to anymore.

        When most multi billion $ corporations are pricing their products more fairly and reasonably, then yes, the indie dev is in fact the bad guy. Sony or Activision don't sell 7 year old games more expensive than on release. In fact, I can get pretty much any $70 triple A game for LESS than Factorio if I just wait for a sale in a year or 2.

    the fact that games for the longest time were around the same price, even though inflation has made a dollar from 2000 worth multiple times that since then, is kind of amazing. its funny that when big games went from 60 bucks to 70 or 80 bucks, people sperged out, even though they're actually still paying less than they did 20 years ago and games today have much bigger budgets
    now you might say "well anon, the issue isn't the price per se, but the fact those games aren't worth it anymore, and they were back in 2000" and i'd agree. but then just don't buy those games. problem solved

          And yet here you are, trying to pretend that you alone decide it. Here's the evil, ugly truth: you are irrelevant to the game's sales. If 35 bucks really is too much, the owner will end up losing money in the long run. Fucking socialists I swear.

                Because it was worth its price at its time. Over time its value decreases as new technology is created and gameplay is refined. Should cars increase in value over time? Should doom 1993 cost $150?

                That's fine then that the price went up because they re-evaluated its value and think it's worth a price increase since they've added more content and improved it. That's nothing new. But when you say it's because of "inflation" what the fuck does that entail for all other older games? Does that mean they should all increase with inflation as well?

                It doesn't entail shit for all other older games. It is this team's decision based on a variety of factors. Fearmongering about all other indie devs making their decisions based on Factorio is unbelievably stupid, even more so when you consider that they haven't ever put the game on sale, but that somehow hasn't caused ripples in indie game sale pricing.

Oh, but THEN the socialist retards would maybe be able to notice that the prices went up and then they would be ashamed to try to defend that the game should stay the same price.

                That would be logically consistent with the other posts, yeah. But the real problem with your disingenuous post is that nobody is advocating for anything to be destroyed or killed besides some anonymous poster.

                Killing the owner is even worse than destroying the restaurant. I took it more lightly than I could have.

                When I said "no explanation", I was referring to the people saying the game isn't worth the asking price, dummy. According to

                Here are some valid points:
                >I think this is a bad idea, people won't pay for it. He's mispricing the game.
                >35 is too expensive for the game, I refuse to buy it.
                >35 is too expensive for the game, I will now pirate it.

                Here's a wrong point:
                >He said he'd keep the pricing, so rising it means he's breaking his promise.
                If you believe this, you're being disingenuous. Imagine if we had 1000% inflation, should then prices stay the same? Oh, but THEN the socialist retards would maybe be able to notice that the prices went up and then they would be ashamed to try to defend that the game should stay the same price.

                Here's one of the most retarded takes of all time:
                >The game has been playable for X time, therefore I value the game less.

                Here are socialist cuck completely invalid points:
                >I'm really angry at him rising the prices, how dare him, I hope he dies.
                >I'm angry at someone else getting money for the work and decisions he made.
                >I'm going to buy the game and review it negatively, that will show him!

                Fascism is socialism with a cooler flag. Fuck off.

                , it's valid to say the game isn't worth $35, until you actually explain why you don't think it's worth $35. Then suddenly you're a retard.

                It is a retarded take, yes, because games don't change since release. Being unable to explain something is better than giving a retarded explanation, for sure. Where's the issue?

      If it was $80 I'd probably have pirated it instead.
      Then after 200+ hours of gameplay I'd probably have ended up buying it anyway.

      Remember when Ganker said digital games would save developers money and they would pass the money to the customers?
      That's ok, nobody else remembers either. Now the average game with all the dlc is well above 120 usd.

              Whoever owns the game at the moment sells the game for the price they believe will get them the most profit. If it's short term or long term, that's for them to decide. Hell, there might even be cases where they want to get some pocket change and don't really care about maximizing profits, they just want to sell more for whatever reason. Maybe to get the brand solidified, or maybe some other reason entirely.

            No, not really. Why their money (they are not gonna use anyway) affect me?

              >>you see, billionaires now have trillions to their names
              What?
              >>you understand who you have to pay more, right?
              I never said that you understand anything.

              So then they increased the price not because of inflation but because they want to make more money. Ergo my original post.

              . The number changes but what matters is the value of money. That's what they're trying to keep the same by increasing the number. 5 bucks does not buy what 5 bucks used to buy 10 years ago.

    He adjusted exactly the percentage amount that the consumer price index increased from the beginning of 2020 until now. The effective cost of the game is identical assuming your wages were also increased over that time period. Looking at the average hourly wage from the beginning of 2020 until now, we see that same percentage increase of roughly 15-16%. Therefore it makes perfect sense what he's doing, I can't comprehend why people have fault with this other than being either mathematically or economically illiterate.
