The Portable Podcast Episode 194 – Retro Fun With ‘Futuridium’ and The ‘Kamikaze Pigs’ Pricing Debacle

futuridium-01How soon is too soon for a price drop?

This week I join Carter on The Portable Podcast to discuss Chillingo’s rather quick FREE price drop on last week’s publishing effort Kamikaze Pigs, which arguably should have been free-to-play right from the get-go and left us with a few questions…

  • How soon is “too soon” for a paid app to go free?
  • Has Chillingo jumped the shark or is this just a small hiccup?
  • Is Rovio’s new Rovio Stars publishing label, with their high-quality inaugural games the new hit-maker that Chillingo once was?

We also discuss the fun retro 3D space shooter Futuridium EP, Angry Birds, PAC-MAN and more.

Listen and enjoy.
