Fantastic! I have been waiting for the iPad release. $10 is a bargain. Thank you!

I love this game-- I truly do-- and have waited a long time for mobile;
I won't, however, be paying another $10 for a mobile version;
Most games I've played that port to mobile don't charge addition funds for the privilege;
The price model on Android apps puts 90%-plus of it's titles at under $2.00;
Either way you spin it, it's not a good marketing.

I agree that free-to- play isn't the answer either, but not because of in-app purchasing;
Any GOOD gamer earns their in-app items in-app and never spends a dime anyway;
The only free-to-play option that would make sense is a demo.

Bottom line, charge a flat rate for the game, across all platforms-- period.

Cool! That would make it $15 on mobile then :)

We don't really care what other people are selling their games at. They're not selling Desktop Dungeons, their value is completely different. I honestly don't understand the reasoning behind saying we shouldn't charge for a game that took years worth of effort to produce. If we couldn't charge for the game on mobile, we wouldn't have made it.

How, pray tell, are games supposed to get produced if the people making them can't afford to eat?

Great game. Loads of fun despite the fact that I am a truly horrendous player. Already own it for PC but when I acquire the funds I will be purchasing the android version. The free extended edition was an amazing surprise and it's devs like you I wanna keep supporting.

I believe it is a fair price for the quality of game you are receiving. If anyone doesn't like that well... don't buy it.

Haven't posted in what must have been around 3 years already but this news brought me back. Got some questions

1) Does this work on Android phones or only tablets?

2) Don't suppose early adopters could get a discount on this?

I guess it's only $10 and you can argue that's a discount from $15 but I'm out of a job right now... yeah, I guess you guys have to eat too and I suppose a discount on that price is not relevant to most people but y'know.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding is that there's no easy way to make user-specific discount/free copy on mobile platforms. Seen quite a lot of mobile ports struggle with this and in the end give up the idea of "compensating the existing user base".
