Said Goldhawk Interactive, authors of Xenonauts in the comments of their Kickstarter project.
Edit: The sentence from GOG read exactly like this:
“We feel, and our customers tell us, that Indie games should be priced at $20 or less.”
Thanks to Mr. England, the lead dev of Xenonauts, for chiming in and clarifying.
I understand the reasoning behind this but this is a bit deeper indie game (indie as in not funded by a big publisher house, not necessarily amateur-ish), not just another vector shooter or pixelated scroller.
I bet you would gain goodwill if you accepted them and helped them despite your objections.
Give them a chance, no?
