Grimoire will also get cheaper if enough people wishlist it

Over a year ago, Cleveland Mark Blakemore shocked the universe by actually releasing Grimoire. That was all well and good, but releasing a game is one thing, selling it is another. Unsurprisingly, the unwashed masses on Steam didn't react too enthusiastically to a mid-90s Wizardry clone being sold for $40. Despite vowing he would never do such a thing, in April Cleve permanently reduced Grimoire's price to $35. Now, in anticipation of the game's major V2 update (which will totally be out any day now!), Cleve has taken a page out of Brian Fargo's book and is offering to permanently discount Grimoire if a sufficient number of people add it to their wishlists. The game's latest news update on Steam has the details:
Many players have complained about the high initial price of Grimoire compared to other roleplaying games on Steam. We are considering a major price discount at the release of V2 and you can help decide what it will be!
Before we release V2, we will set the sale price according to the wishlist volume on Steam according to the figures below!
Permanent & Sale price reductions at launch of V2 :
10K Wishlist = $29.95, Sale Price $24.95
25K Wishlist = $24.95, Sale Price $19.95
50K Wishlist = $19.95, Sale Price $9.95
100K Wishlist = $9.95, Permanent & Sale Price
If you want lower the price permanently on the Steam store both for V2 and any future updates, you can help by getting your friends to wishlist the game and encouraging other Steam users to wishlist it. This is a chance to make the game affordable permanently for diehard fans of turn-based old skool roleplaying games!
Keep watching this page for further updates on our progress on V2, it is going to be even more awesome than the first release of Grimoire - if that can be imagined !!!
