Choose-your-own-price means exactly what it sounds like. As the gamer you decide what value our game (Gish) has to you and pay that. A casual gamer might decide that they want to play through the content once or twice, enjoy the story and then move on to a new game. Other players might be out to immense themselves in the community, and play classic levels again and again to challenge their high scores. We feel that players who appreciate parts of the game for certain aspects should still be able to extract that enjoyment without digging deep into their wallets. At the other end of the spectrum, players who are absolutely in love with our work and want to support us shouldn't be limited.
This pricing strategy often times raises eyebrows and people ask the question, won’t everyone just pay the minimum? As an indie company the relationship we have with our customers is much different than what you would see between huge corporations and gamers. We are not just out to make money, but genuinely enjoy producing unique game experiences for our fans. Within the community most gamers respect the role that indie developers play in keeping content fresh and competitive. We are not out to feed the masses with top notch graphics or put out bulk gameplay with already famous icons. The content generated by indie companies gives a unique feel with every game that just can’t be created by the giants - sort of like that favorite song no one else knows about. Gamers are different than the average consumers, they are more aware of the roles small companies play in game development, and because of this, are more willing to support the developers who create the games they love to play.

Gish isn't your average hero, in fact he's not your average anything... see Gish is a ball of tar. A Sunday stroll with his lady friend Brea goes awry when a shadowy figure emerges from an open man hole and pulls Brea into the ground below. Following Brea's calls for help Gish suddenly finds himself in the subterranean sewers of Dross, a long forgotten city filled with twisting corridors, evil traps and some of the most demented creatures imaginable.
With his gelatinous structure as his only means of defense Gish must follow the echoing cries of his damsel in distress deep into the earth below. What freakish creatures dwell in this subterranean land? Who is Brea's captor? And just how far down does the rabbit hole go?
Life isn't easy when you're a 12 pound ball of tar...
