WOULD YOU BUY IWBTG STUFF
« on: December 16, 2007, 10:25:52 pm »

Of course I'm always looking for a way to make money and I'd rather do it while giving people things. I've been looking at Cafepress and similar sites, but before I bother I'd like to guage some interest.

Also try and tell me what you'd want/be willing to spend for it, because stickers and buttons seem kind of NEAT.

all of the above.  but stickers would totally need to be upscaled pixel perfect replications of stuff.  or at least cuttable to be such.

Stickers would be awesome.  You could create a devilish nightmare of  :spikes: on a wall, with a  :kid: in the middle of it.

He would be falling to his death, of course.  If you were to have a big kit of stickers, with platforms and walls, spikes, apples, etc in it... that might sell.  It'd be like legos!

A plush The Kid that explodes on touch would sell.

I would buy the stuff, in theory, but the truth is that there's a lot of equally cool stuff on the internet that has cheesy merchandise available, and I haven't bought it.  I think the problem is that by the time you add in shipping, anything you'd order is going to be overpriced, unless you're buying $20 or $30 worth of IWBTG merchandise, which you won't.

I think the best way to get my money would be to come up with some kind of a package deal that would justify spending a decent amount of money in one throw.  Something like some special version of the game, with a mouse pad, and a sticker, and an IWBTG troll doll, and a tee shirt, and a car decal, and a bumpersticker, and a walnut person with googly eyes, and a paper weight, and a condom, and a packet of mustard.

I guess the problem you get into, though, is that the more seriously you begin to make money on this, the more likely someone is to care about the blatant copyright violations involved with the game.

Speaking of which, I would like to take this opportunity to note that I have never downloaded, played, or heard of the game we're talking about.

Lawyers can't play far enough to see copyright infringement. :D Thing is, honestly, no one cares because it isn't overt about it.

Well, I think I'm going to do the cafepress stuff somewhat soon. The more I think about it the more a special edition should wait until all the extras I want are in. Popularity may be dead by then, but its the fair thing to do.

I voted the top one, but I'll say the bottom one.  To be a jerk.

Fuck stickers; MAGNETS.  Create a IWBTG stage on your 'fridge.

Hey, I'M a lawyer, and while I may suck at the game, it doesn't take any skill to see Mega Man 2, Rampage, the Legend of Zelda, and Street Fighter 2 ripped off in the opening sequences.

That said, let's pretend that IWBTG is fair use, in that it features aspects of other games only in order to comment upon them.

I'd get my parents to buy me the entire inventory for Christmas.

Yes, I am 19 and still get gifts like a child.  I love being spoiled.

The Zelos av/sig fit you perfectly then.

A magnet set would be pretty awesome. Make your own stages and stuff. A good sticker image would be the stained glass when fighting the final boss. You could make a discount offer for all the people that have beaten the game with shown proof. >_>;

I'd want a button to put on my jacket. Or my hat. Or my backpack.

I just want a button.
