I think that Akaneiro is worth to be paid for. I guess that they're switched to paid model not to make more money for themselves but to keep good quality of game as an independent developer. Akaneiro is online only game, just like the Diablo III is, all our data have to be saved on their servers. Servers and creation of new content isn't free and without support from estabilished publisher their budget needs to be higher. They need money to give us a good quality product.|
For me, Akaneiro is promising game, and have a good chance to be better than mentioned Diablo III. And if so many people have bought Diablo III, and I don't see why wouldn't be there as many people to buy Akaneiro as well. It's not really a big deal. I think that most people were attracted by game, and not by "FREE" slogan. And it's good that they're doing the switch before game is coming out. I'm sure that many people who havn't already heard about the game will love and buy finished product.
You may say "but D3 have one-time payment only and Akaneiro will have micro-payment system". I'm also a little worried about it, but they already said that
Headed to PC, the web, and tablets, the game is free-to-play—but Spicy Horse promises it won't be "naggy" or "spammy"
It will be free to play, with micro-transactions for customization/convenience items and DLC-style expansions.
We've no plans to sell weapons for cash.
so I don't see reason why we shouldn't believe them. I belive that they won't ruin their own game by making it pay-to-win. They're too clever to do such a bad move.
