My latest creation Tiltilation
is level based. You'll get 15 levels in the demo + an additional 50ish in the full version. However, I'm considering offering downloadable level packs to registered users, something like
- Hardcore - difficult levels like in the current version
- Kids - really simple but colourful levels
It being a casual game I don't want people to have to go off to the web to get the levels and then install them in some ornate directory (like say Quake) but rather have an internal interface that allows the game to go and retrieve level packs at the click of a button. This has the added benefit of helping me check registration keys frequently.
I'm worried about having an extra pay for feature that relies on having an internet connection. Is this a problem these days? Do people still get annoyed when they find a feature they can't use because they're not connected?
