I would like to clarify that I am just the game developer. In both cases (Odyssey Brasil and More Work)
I want to launch my games with them because they have a real passion for the retrogram scene. So,
if I can help you anyway, let me know.

I really wanted to buy this - but I wont ... this will be the first of Rafael's games I will not buy and it the practice of releasing games in Brazil only continues, it will not be the last ... I was until now collecting every single homebrew to be released for the videopac to have a "complete" collection - this game breaks it for me and I am sorry to say I will from now on only buy games selectively. Why ?

please look at the attached picture ...

apart from the already VERY high price point of the game (65 USD for a game in a reused cartridge case without box with Portuguese language print only) the overhead for getting the game to me will be more than 45 USD ... so it means in Europe to have this game I will have to pay more than 110 USD for it ... that is simply a greedy and unjustified price point from more work Games in my opinion (just for comparison - the game "JACK & THE BEANSTALK" released by Videopac Belgium is 29€ with multilanguage manual - roughly 32 USD or half of what more work is charging for the game ... and no "10 USD paypal fee, 2 USD packaging and handling" ...

sorry Rafael - I really like your games, I will continue to buy them if you find publishers that actually charge a reasonable amount for the games - more works is not one of them ...

Honestly, I must apologize, the intention not to hurt anyone. I know it's frustrating not being able to continue the collection, we also suffered from it, buying games abroad for us is very expensive, and once we didn't even get paid. Some sellers are quick to sell, but don't support when their games don't appear. On the other hand, I also get frustrated when I see a product that is not made seriously and, of course, opportunistic hacks. Understand that Rally Racer is a case apart and also understand that I do not participate in the publishers price policy. As for my new games (except RR), they will be released by VideopacisAlive and Coté Gamers (and CCC if interested) in Europe. I think it makes everyone happy.

I am with Mark here and will not buy the game from Brazil either. And 110 USD is not the end of the line, because you have to add 25 to 30 USD in customs fees, making a total of 135 to 140 USD, for ONE game! I can get three games from Videopac Belgium for that money ...

I also see the other side though. For many years Brazilian collectors had to spend a lot of money for the overseas releases.

Ideal solution would be distributors in Brazil, USA and Europe, each of them releasing the games in the style of their home - for reasonable prices of course. So collectors could get the games in their native style and it would probably be cheaper for everyone. Not easy to manage, I know, but maybe possible.

Unfortunately my job doesn't leave me enough time to release several games a year, but maybe Videopac Belgium or Cote Gamers would be interested to do the Euro releases ...

nothing to apologize for on your side, Rafael! I know you don't make the prices that are asked here - I just feel bad for you as you create amazing games that should be enjoyed by as many people as possible, I am all for supporting developers to be able to create more games - but businesses like the one described above unfortunately prevent exactly that.

I really think publishers have to be called our for practices that are just money grabbing from an already small community thus destroying the community even more ... I mean seriously - asking 10 USD on paypal fees? I don't know how high paypal fees are at the moment, but I very much doubt that they are 10% ...

as for what Dieter said - I agree - creating games in every market in the style that also satisfies what the market wants (an "Odyssey 2" game with english manual in the US, an "Odyssey" game with Portuguese instructions in Brazil, a "Videopac" game with multilingual manual in Europe) - with reasonable shipping costs as it would be sent from the respective region, would be the perfect solution - but I very much doubt that there is actually enough demand in every region to make that a feasible option ... not sure what a perfect solution would look like here ...

Maybe collectors in Germany can team up to share shipment / taxes? How many games can be sent for the 33USD shipping cost?

I just want to say I enjoy this game... While not quite as smooth as my favorite 8 bit racer, Enduro on the 2600, this is the best Odyssey car game so far, a fun challenge with tight controls... I hope to beat the second course soon....

As always, the best part of making a game is watching people have fun. Thank you for the words. By the way,
Odyssey Brasil through the Comandante R page,  makes monthly game challenges.

This month we have Rally Racer, if you want to send pictures of your best scores, it would be nice.
