Right. Since my demo is a browser game, I do drive on views. The more plays I get each day, the higher I end up in the rankings on Itch. So when my players return daily for the reward, I will quikcly raise to the top most popular games. At least... I hope.
Then, when my demo is getting popular, I hope some of the players will actually play buy the full game
Yeah, that makes sense to me.
Well, you don't pay for all games. Some games are just free. And if you buy the game, then enjoying the game is not a reward, it is what you pay for. You can't buy rewards. That is not how rewards work.
I think we are talking semantics here and how someone defines "reward" in this context.
I suppose an alternative argument I could give is that games you need to buy for
money don't necessarily *need* any further rewards.
There is no reason to *hook* a that already paid the full price to play in the first place. They just enjoy the game and move on.
And if the game was good, they might come back from time to time to replay it. But that's not really a concern for the developer anymore whether they replay or not.
