Never pay more than 20 bucks

Guybrush told us to never pay more than 20 bucks for a game…

But Thimbleweed Park Box at Fangamer is 40 bucks! :wink:

Guybrush was talking about a game, not about additional not-a-game awesome stuff that the TWP box contains. :stuck_out_tongue:

If you look close enough you can tell that the sparkle in Elaine´s eyes are actually dollar signs…

Inflation must be added. That was in 1991. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

If we are talking about $20 in 1987 then it’s actually working out.

Well, at least in Germany the prices for games are lower today (or are still the same if we have a look at consoles). For example in 1991 you had to pay 120 DM for the PC version of a Sierra adventure game. 120 DM would be (without inflation!) round about 60 Euro = 72 US-Dollar.

And now you just pay 40 US-Dollar for the boxed version of TWP and only 20 bucks without the box. So the prices have radical decreased. So you can’t add only the inflation. :slight_smile:

But of course I can’t say how the prices developed in other countries. :slight_smile:
