Rip-Off

For months it said that Season 1 will hab three episodes. Now we got this 5 room long 45 minute rip-off and a preview for episode 4. Looks like they split episode 3 in 2 parts to make more money. I wish I'd knew that before I bought it for 3,29.

Brace yourself because what I am about to tell you may piss you off........

Actually on their FB page, it says there will be 7 episodes in Season 1. They have decided to make the episodes from now on shorter, so that they can release them more on a monthly schedule. So far it has been every two months or more.

I Dont see any problem with this. The gaps between the episodes was too big IMO. Was the price of episode 3 the same as episodes 1 and 2?

Episode 1 FREE

Episode 2 3.49

Episode 3 2.79 I would say fairly overpriced for actual content

I should stop caring and just not buy more episodes! They cut the content in half but not the price. I'm done with Adera. Thanks for the info!

In the US, it was about the same - Episode 2 was $4.99, Episode 3 was 20% cheaper for $3.99. Way more than 20% less content, though.

Well I guess you guys have got a point but its also worth considering how inexpensive this game is. Even if they charge the same for episodes 4-7 as they did for episode 3, the complete game is going to come in at a budget price.

Given the production values of the game I think this is fair, not a bargain, not a ripoff but fair.

I liked it but it was indeed short and easy compared to the other two episodes so far. I liked the first episode the most and that was the free one. Still looking forward to episode 4. Should be out soon according to the schedule I have read about.

They must have changed their plans because I spoke with them this weekend at their PAX East booth and here's what they told me about the rest of the season:
  1. Episode 4 is completed and currently in certification, expect it to be another 1-2 weeks before release.
  2. Episode 4 will be around the same length and the same price as episode 3. They were done this way to get the content out sooner.
  3. Episode 5 will be the biggest episode yet and will be the conclusion of this season (not 7 episodes as previously reported).
  4. Episodes generally have a 2-3 month development.
  5. No details on when season 2 will take place, but expect a decent break.
