Welll....what an interesting surprise!  Congrats aplenty on the substantial step forward that v2.0 certainly counts as versus v1.0.   Easily joins my purchase backlog, of that I can assure you.   8)

It will be interesting to see how this arrangement fares, as the only other one that comes to mind roughly trying comparable is Lost Labyrinth.

What plans do you have for it going into the future in terms of the general shake of things and diverging update paths between the Commercial and Free edition?   Granted, this largely depends on sales and such, but still.

I tried to make it so the average player can enjoy the game without even noticing that they are not playing the full version, while someone who plays a lot and wants a better challenge (or who just wants to support me  8)) would find the extra levels and game modes enticing.

In terms of future updates, any kind of updates to gameplay in general will occur to both versions simultaneously (balance, fixes, new mechanics, etc).  For instance, 2.0 adds fountains to the game, which show up in both versions.  In terms of game "expansion" I think that anything I add will be only in the commercial version.  I'm not sure in what form that will come though, as to be honest I think any extra levels will be incredibly difficult due to the power curve.  I would like to add secret or alternate levels and paths, as well as possibly more classes, so something is possible.

Epilogue is closed-source and commercial, so I do not think it has any place in the incubator, as it exists currently.  This is not to mention the fact Epilogue is very nearly a finished game.  It is not at all in a state requiring "incubation" although feedback is always welcome.

Ah, I must have missed the closed-source and commercial thing (though the latter is not an issue, as open source can be commercial).

The finishing state is also not an issue, because "incubation" also relates to "make games better known" (that's why I'm in with LambdaRogue).

Anyway, never mind.

Nice job---always bodes well to see an update so soon after any commercial release.

I've been struggling with how to deal with the ingredients for a while, and finally reached a setup I think is balanced.  It was one of the last things I thought really needed work so I figured it would be best to push out a release rather than wait for a substantial content update.
