(Awakening lives for his game!)
A few years ago I saw a game which, eventually spawned the idea that became Echelon. The only things the games have in common, really, are nice graphics and bumping pieces off the board. Aside from that, they aren't alike at all, if memory serves. Although, there is one big difference between them.
Subscribing to the other game, which had a 30 day trial, only supported 2 players, and had no online capabilities would cost you an entire $20.00.
Subscribing to Echelon would cost you an entire $0.20 or $0.50, it comes with online capabilities and supports up to four players.
Yet, absolutely no one bothers to subscribe to my game! I'm confused because I hear a lot of "this game's great!" comments, yet it's apparently not great enough to be worth 2-5 dimes. So, my question is: is there something about Echelon that warrants not subscribing? Maybe a general lack of BYONDimes? Or is this really just a sign of my impatience?
