There's a reason for the low price: The game will be dead in a month.

Quote :
Dear AErena players,
with a grave heart and much regret, we are hereby announcing the sunsetting of AErena. We dearly love the game and we have invested a lot of time (and budget) into making it. We still think it is a unique tactical title and setting and we know some of you think the same. However as a player vs player online title, AErena needs a critical mass of players to work and this has not been achieved in the previous months and this is not going to change in the future, as we cannot afford marketing or updating the title to keep it alive.

The cost for keeping the servers active and supporting the game by far exceed the returns and we have basically paid to keep it running out of love and dedication to our game and our players. Being a very small studio however, we cannot afford to do so any more.

As such we will now start a sunsetting period for AErena, keeping the game running but taking it off the store some time in the next two weeks. We will keep the servers running until end of April at which time AErena will cease to exist. We dearly wish there was any other solution, but we have exhausted all alternative means of keeping it alive.

We are very sad to see it go, but we had a blast while it lasted. Thanks to all the players who kept it alive for so long.

Same price or less on Steam (no tax for me on Steam).

So...you're not buying the game, but renting it for a month!

I find it's selfish, that a developer like this doesn't just release a patch to convert it to peer-to-peer self-hosting. And then give us all the ability just to connect using some public forum, versus kill it for people who paid for it previously and was expecting it to last longer than a few months.
