Don’t worry, I’ll not harass.
But I’ll not just ask.
I’ll try to convince them, to negotiate with them, to give them reasons to be interested.
By the way, in order to negotiate with developers, I need to know how you share profits between you and them.
50/50 then you share half of your half on donations?
Meaning 50% of the price to fund the developers, 25% to fund you and 25% to fund great independent video games and a healthier world?
Is it how you deal?
Hmm… Do you want that I take care of contacting next developers and negotiate with them on your behalf?
Then you didn’t understand my point.
The point is not to convince developers to add one more store, the point is to convince developers to choose you, meaning explaining why you and not another store, what makes you better than other stores for developers, for players, for the world.
So in this case, I understood well that they are decreasing their amount of stores, meaning that they want less stores, but the point is to convince them to choose you as one of their few stores.
Just give them reasons to choose you as one of their few stores, tell them why you are a better choice than Steam!
The request is not “Sell your video game on one more store.”.
The request is “Sell your video game on FireFlower Games.”.
It is up to you to make them understand why you are different from other stores and why they should choose you.
Do you even try to negotiate with developers or do you just ask for their games and answer “okay” when they answer they are not interested?
It is up to you to make them interested!
You need to CONVINCE them, not just ask!
You need to give reasons to choose you!
You need to tell them why they would choose you rather than another store, what makes you better for them, for customers and for the world!
And if they still are not interested, then give up.
But not before you tried to negotiate with them!
I might be too insisting, but you are not enough!
You need to show that you are worth it!
I hope that you understand my point.
Very well then.
I told you, I share your ideals. So of course I support you!
“You might consider”? Oh come on, it is a minor change quick to do, it is not as if I asked you to remake the whole website!
Hmm… I get your point. Very well then, don’t change the “less”, it is correct, I didn’t think about the materials consumed to build the servers and the cables, you got me on this point.
Thanks to Toby Fox, we now know why developers are not interested on you.
However, in my e-mail, I talked to Toby Fox about your ideals and I told him that I thought that he would be happy to participate because I played Undertale and it is obvious to me that this game is a message of non-violence, kindness and friendship and that you stand for these ideals so Undertale has definitely its place here.
I also told him that you support independent developers.
I told him that I didn’t understand how he could not be interested by your ideals.
Now I know why he is not willing to handle one more store but even so, that doesn’t change anything that I told him.
I gave him the link to your about page and I asked him to read what you stand for then reconsider his participation by adding Undertale to your catalogue.
By the way, can’t you just replace “FireFlower Games offers…” by “I offer…”? Because that really doesn’t make any sense to say “I am FireFlower Games. Please allow me to introduce myself: FireFlower Games offers…”. It is as if I would say “Hey! I am Maxime! Please allow me to introduce myself. Maxime is…”. You see? That really doesn’t make any sense to introduce myself by saying “Maxime is…”. :-3
So, please, fix it. Because that really bothers me. Fix it for my mind sanity please.
And once you are at it, fix also the “less natural resources are consumed in the process” because actually NO natural resource is consumed in the process so saying “less” is incorrect and that also bothers me. So just fix it as well for I can sleep well please.
Anyway, I am waiting for Toby Fox’s reply and we will see if I succeed to make him want to reconsider adding Undertale here or not.
If he gives me the same answer that he gave to you that it takes more energy to handle more stores, then I know what I will answer to him because I actually have an answer to that but I wait for his answer first.
I keep hope that I succeed to get him interested on you and that he will reconsider his answer already.
I’m not giving up!
I stay determined!
I sent an e-mail to Toby Fox trying to convince him to add Undertale here.
We will see if I succeed or if I failed.
I don’t understand how he could not be interested by your project of developing a healthier world…
Did you play Undertale? This video game is totally made to deliver a message to players which gets along very well with your project.
According to the concept of Undertale, I would have thought that Toby Fox would be very pleased by your project and would be willing to participate.
Did he say why?
