Just before Christmas, the good folks at Adamant Entertainment dropped the price of all their PDF products to just $1. Considering these are the guys who released the utterly lovely ICONS RPG, that’s not a sale you wanted to miss.
Now they’ve upped the ante even further by announcing it’s not a sale, but a major shift in pricing policy. In their own words:
A lot of media producers talk a lot about “piracy” — how to stop it, how to get around it, how to design their businesses to deal with it. This is folly. People want to support the things that they enjoy, and overwhelmingly prefer safe, legitimate sources to do so — as long as you make in convenient and make it reasonably priced. That’s all there is — there’s no stopping unauthorized file sharing, and it’s ridiculous to tailor your business to try and address it. Companies should instead spend their effort figuring out ways to make it easier for customers to purchase… which is what we feel our new experiment allows.
Everything is now a dollar, for as long as their experiment continues. That includes their ICONS range, Thrilling Tales, Venture 4th, the whole lot. They figure that if the price point is low enough, piracy becomes redundant. I hope they’re right, and plan to do all I can personally to ensure that their experiment is a success.
So this is what I want you to do.
Head over to the Adamant Entertainment store at RPG Now immediately. Take a look at their awesome products and if you’ve a dollar to spare & see something you like, buy it. Don’t sit on the fence!
Whether you buy something or not, please spread the word. This is potentially hobby-changing news. Adamant Entertainment’s positive attitude needs your support and if it works for them, more content creators will follow suit.
Thanks for listening.
UPDATE: Thanks to PayPal’s fees, the price has been increaed to $1.99. It’s disappointing that PayPal are the spanner in the works for getting a one dollar price point, but there you go.
