I can understand you want to make a quick buck with this game but I hope you're not one of those who are angry that the platform you develop for doesn't get the attention it deserves.
All I can say is I disagree with your assesment of the game.
A simple browser game with no polish at all
? Really??? REALLY??? What kind of polish do you expect for a dollar? Did I forget to put a ball sack rumble massager in the game? Is that what it is?
Tell me what browser game lets you play home run derby with your xbox avatar, has large animated avatar crowds in a giant 3D stadium, and is engaging to an entire family sitting around the TV trying to beat each others score. Tell me so I can go play it then hang my head in shame.
Make a quick buck??? For all I've done building and supporting the people that purchase my work that is such an insult.
I'm just one developer and my release schedule is alternating between big releases and small releases so I don't get burnt out. I put a lot, I mean a LOT of effort and attention in the game and it shows.
For the record, I am one of the few developers that actively promote Xbox Indie Games as a strong, successful platform to develop for. I believe each game on the service gets the attention it deserves. Build a great game, the gamers reward you. Build an awful game, they ignore you. Simple as that.
If you feel this way about a $1 game then I suggest you be happy with your Iphone apps where pretty soon the customers there are going to be demanding the indie developers pay THEM.
