Just in case someone is interested in grabbing it before it gets pulled from the market. The removal notice is here:

https://steamcommunity.com/gid/33816082/announcements/detail/1706236518823705550

Actually reading through the developer's note, it looks like they are trying to bring it onto the Switch instead. Though I don't understand why pulling it from Steam would help the cause.


I gathered from the comments that this sale and removal from the market irked a lot of people, I really didn't mean to alter anyone's ideas about what they think of as a good game. I only read about this and wanted to bring it to the attention of many people who I know may find the game interesting and might be upset that the game would be pulled before they could get a chance to try it.

pathetic trick to use the "remove quick buy ! "
bring it to the switch okay . Isn't the big steam jungle so the game can have a better popularity and then pc player can look for this .
Only pc collector player will check the game now...

I don't know if it's a trick or there's something else going on. To me it doesn't make sense to do the sale and remove to get collectors to buy, because I think it would still generate a lot less in the long run, especially when the sale is at 90% off, that's going to be pennies on each sale. I guess if it were me, I would just leave it in Steam.

It has a very low base price and 90% discount, what's the trick?

Getting people to buy the game just because it's getting removed. It seems fairly obvious to me.

What are you suggesting them do instead? Give no discount? Or do not notify anyone about removal of the game?

I'd suggest not removing the game at all.

There are undoubtedly people who think your most beloved games are shit as well. Should those also be removed?

If the "game" looks like it was made in an hour, hentai sliding puzzle, copy/paste, achievement spam then it's garbage. You can't compare games like that to games that took years to make.

I'm not comparing games. I'm trying to understand the basics of your argument.

They're shit because they're low effort trash not because i think they're bad. We need less of that on the store.

Maybe you need less of whatever you deem not fit. I don't. Games of whatever quality being available don't take away anything for me.

Well then you're part of the problem. Thanks to people like you, Steam is the way it currently is.

I guess. It's problematic that everyone doesn't agree with you it seems

Agreed with Nixxi. I am surprised no admin has to verify and accept the game being on steam first.

I don't get the logic either but it looks interesting enough to toss $0.69 down just in case. Thanks!

Edit: Maybe to say it's exclusively on Switch? I dunno.

That's actually would a really good explanation. If that's the case, I guess it's a good thing for the dev overall, to get exclusive rights purchased like that.

Why support a dev who won't support their own product though?
Looks kinda crap anyway.

This kind of indie game is just up my alley on most days. I think only time will tell what will happen overall with this game, as @doslover said, maybe it's an exclusivity deal with Nintendo.

For most people, buying games isn't altruism and charity. It's about personal gain. In this case, it's getting entertainment. That's why so many people here are concerned about sales. If they were here to just support devs, then obviously a sale percentage would never even be an issue.

I'm not talking about financially supporting the devs, I'm talking about supporting the future that the devs have planned for the life of this game on Steam.

Everyone complains when games/keys get revoked, keys don't work/supposed duplicates, game doesn't even have an executable, and so on. For me, this seems like a similar practice.

Meh! No cards so not interested but thanks for the heads up. The game play is not my thing. Better looking then a lot of the cheap indie games I see. Hope they do well on Nintendo.

Doesn't look that interesting of a game, also the whole thing of moving to the switch seems weird.

Guess what, I had a little bit of excess wallet so I ended up buying it. I really have no restraint when it comes to this stuff, I blame the fact that the game costed me just 3 or 4 cards :/

Thanks for the heads up! Was already a little interested in this one (mostly because I like the whole 3D + Pixel art aesthetic) and at that price seems like a good time to check it out :)

They didn't stay long on steam o.O And only 8 reviews... Hopefully they will have more success with the Switch :)

Interesting, but I'd rather buy Snakeybus which is on sale for 3 more days (January 27) at $2.49 USD

BTW I'd post Wildbus to /r/bitchimabus on Reddit but I can't find a decent gif that's not on an ad-riddled forum that locks down its content (possibly NSFW ads)

I just bought Snakeybus last night, can't wait to try it out. :D As for Reddit, I only read, never use it for anything else...

probably wasnt getting any exposure and had no real sales, so they figure making a big deal out of ITS BEING REMOVED will generate mass sales with its low price. better to make 5 thousand sales at half a buck, than 5 sales at full price...

they can always change things up and release it as a new game down the road, or maybe they already have a new game in the pipeline.
