My first game I have ever completed, Luminia, is now on Indievania! It's not completely finished yet, but check it out here: http://www.indievania.com/games/luminia
Congrats on your game. It looks alright, but the pricing in my opinion is very high. There isn't too much that makes me feel drawn to the game. Other than that, good job
Why do people want to charge money for their first game ^^? Just make some of them, get feedback, value the feedback (which might be much more sophisticated if you are making free games) and then, when you are a good game developer, use your skill to earn money.
I agree with PixelWyrm and thesaint1987, the pricing seems very high for a first game, especially when it's still on the alpha version and the gameplay + visuals, although interesting, don't really make me want to play the game. The gameplay is just jumping around platforms looking for the right path? Anything else? And the protagonist, being a light, has any abilitys that affect gameplay?
Don't take this the wrong way, it does look interesting, but looking interesting doesn't mean a game will be sucessfull.
And if you do intend to sell your first game you should definitely try other business models. Take for example SWIFT*STITCH, a great Indie Game. The developer, Sophie Houlden, released her beta version as a free demo with 42 levels. That's a lot of levels to enjoy and understand what the game is all about. And enough to decide if it is worth to spend your money on it.
Correcting myself over here. It's not necessary to have a Pro license to sell games. My bad.
Well, at least that's my opinion.
Good luck with your project! And don't give up.

I agree that it's priced a bit high for how simple it is, but if it's fun I think it's still reasonable to charge something. He should be in the 1 to 2 dollar range. But that's my opinion of what I think would be a fair price, I'm no businessman.
You should have a demo, then if people like the demo they can buy the full version.
Consider adding a few things to mix the game up.
Laying down the framework for my new game project now.
Man,you can do commercial games in the free version too.You should also explore your resources better. If you do have Unity Pro (which is necessary to make commercial games), you have a LOT of visual resources to make your game look more interesting and more beautiful.
Thanks for the heads up man, didn't know that.
By the way, it's nice to see a fellow brazilian here in the forums.
Cool game, i understand your jumpen into buisness, however if you want my oppinion if your gonna charge for your first games , charge low. Great job though!
Great idea, looks great, and love the music. Well done
