Hi:) I'm terribly sorry about the pricing issue.
Recently, itch.io passed regulations forbidding us to charge anything less than a minimum of $1.00 as a standard sales price for our games.
I had naturally assumed that, for temporary sales purposes, that itch.io would allow us developers to deduct any percentage of the original pricetag that we chose, even if the resulting figure amounted to less than a dollar. The fact that the itch.io interface allowed me to finalize the sales parameters without prompting me for any adjustments had indicated to me that the 29 cent sales figure in fact had been approved as a temporary reduction.
However, I was a little puzzled due the fact that, of all the sales accumulated during this time period, every single purchase of SNAILS had accumulated a $.71 tip in addition to the prescribed amount of $.29 cents. As of two days ago, I performed a little "diagnostic" by attempting to purchase the game myself from my private account, and sure enough, itch.io refused to facilitate the transaction until a minimum amount of $1 dollar had been entered ("for processing fees", they said).
Again, I'm terribly sorry for pricing issue.:( I was not originally aware that itch.io would be imposing these regulations on top of the original pricetag.
In fact, as of right now, I'll be adjusting the parameters of the Halloween Sale to reflect figures more in conformity with what itch.io is currently mandating, at the moment.
I would have preferred to issue a temporary price of 29 cents for this game, but itch.io apparently won't allow me to:(
I had so much fun with this game! It was a snail bashing, rock 'em sock 'em good time! I found myself habitually gravitating my left hand to WASD keys, but eventually got the hang of it. Thanks for such an awesome game! Here's my playthrough!
Is there any way to change the controls?
On a germany keyboard the Z and Y buttons are swapped. So it's very difficult to control.
I'm truly sorry, but unfortunately, no:(
Are you currently using the full version or the demo?
I currently don't have any plans to incorporate key-mapping options at this time. But, if you like, I could create a specialized version that substitutes "Y" for the functions of the "Z" key.
Thanks for your response :)
I think I'm gonna play the demo with a key mapper, so it should be no problem. So no need for you to change this just for me (but thanks anyway)!
Maybe you will add this feature for future games, because this might be a killer for some people out there.
itch refused my payment multiple times, the developer noticed and gifted me a copy. i am still trying to give him due payiment for this little gem. the cinematics are priceless.
Is there any salt in the game?
Hehe:) Unfortunately, no. Just cookies, ankhs, and her pummeling legs;)
Although, in retrospect, I seriously should've thought about salt or sodium-based items as an additional means of combatting snails.
