If you don't mind me asking, is it more about increasing the playerbase or like the early access thing after kickstarter, is it monetarily motivated (more sales = more cash on hand = more tools/developers can be paid for)? Obviously it's a nice incentive to the free weekend players to jump on the purchase quickly because they know it will (by their perspective) double in price after the Monday, but I heard about a year ago that the high price was a purposeful decision to create a high barrier to entry to griefers and hackers... but that was a long time ago and may have just been conjecture by the community, not a dev quote.

Mostly about us being ready to welcome more people into the game. The price has served us well.. we are financially stable and we have a very very solid core of community and friends we can rely on for testing and fine tuning the game. This is more like the beginning of our transition into a new phase with much more emphasis on selling the game and building a longer term future for squad and owi. We would love to continue building on this game for years and this is the next step in making that a reality. 

no mistake.. their will be griefers and hackers.. but there will be many more very good players who will quickly become strong members of the community now that we have the core community to help them integrate into the game.

That's great to hear! I remember reading a while ago that the original plan was to work on Squad for about 2 years(had me a little worried), which meant there would only be one year of development left right now. Great to know you guys want to work on Squad for years to come!

I am all for the free weekend but I think the 50% is to much, right now.

 

Tempt em with a taster and they will pay full price, save the 50% off for full release.

 

Either way, the games getting great and good luck to OWI!

That's great to hear! I'm confident that this will manifest itself in converted players after the weekend ends. I'll be putting some time in and doing my best to showcase the game as intended...well...at least as far as my skills allow!

Nah, I've done that with other games, I don't have the patience to deal with all the idiots who dgaf and are just there to screw around. The percentage of players who actually get it and buy into any game is small. You get what you pay for with a free weekend.

Not working in Argentina. Any ideas?

"We are now pushing a version Alpha 8.6 hotfix release. This is planned as the last hotfix before the free weekend begins! For those curious, the free weekend will begin at 6PM GMT Thursday."

 

 30 minutes boys!
