    I love Edmund. During the holiday Steam sale, I picked up the Basement Collection for $2 and Indie Game The Movie for $2.50. That’s less than 5 dollars for some of the best work I’ve ever seen. At full price, they sell for $14 together. Now that it’s come to retail, they expect it to sell for 20 euros??? Why even bother?
