Price Increase to $1.99

I want to first of all thank everyone who has bought the game at the original $1 price point or during one of the sales. It is much appreciated. I think most of you will realize the great value Bad Caterpillar is at that point. It is my most sold game (I have three other Steam releases as well). At the same time, it is also my least profitable game.

That later point (and the fact that almost everyone says "great value" or "you should be selling this for more") has lead me to readjust the price to $1.99. I think that's more in line with what I should have been selling this game at to start with and also makes sales look more effective (a 30% off sale at $1 is only 30 cents and isn't doing a lot to convince more people to buy the game).

I tried $1, I think it was a great value for everyone that got it at that point, but I'm running a business as well and I've been thinking for some time that just wasn't the right price point. I think $1.99 is where I should have been to start with and now we're there.

Feel free to agree or disagree in the comments.

CRT Mode in latest update

We just uploaded an update that adds a "CRT Mode" option under the Options screen. This gives Bad Caterpillar the look of playing it on a classic arcade / console.

I think you guys and gals will enjoy it. And if there are other things you'd like to see us add, please let us know in the comments!

About This Game

Partake in a 2D retro action the likes of which hasn’t been seen since the collapse of the arcades decades ago. Experience intense non-stop action as you fight off space insect hordes, collect weapons and power-ups, and battle for high score bragging rights against the entire world. And you know, save mankind from extinction at the hands of caterpillars, scorpions, spiders, and a slew of other ill-tempered giant killer insects.

"Bad Caterpillar is the game you deserve, but also the one you need."
- Commissioner Gordman
