That's understandable. I think the current pricing is mainly aimed at customers with said nostalgia.
From what I gather Jazz Jackrabbit
was incredibly hard to come by legally before it finally came to GOG. If you look at the wishlist entries for Jazz Jackrabbit
you'll see that several thousand users expressed their demand - similar to the Captain Claw
situation, but with more votes. I guess part of GOG's deal with Epic Games
was that they would go through with a release on GOG as long as the price wouldn't drop as drastically. I think the situation is at the very least an improvement over the time before the GOG release, where people had to pay collector prices in order to get a copy.
Personally, I agree that the current pricing doesn't offer much of an incentive, but I'm glad that thousands of people on GOG were able to finally enjoy the game.
I think it's still far better than the Interplay
approach of raising the base price and claiming their games got cheaper by offering a higher discount percentage-wise...
