This Friday: Jackbox Summer Party
Click for group version
My personal take: Welcome to the Sandwich
Jackbox Summer Party is a perfect illustration of what life folks at Humble, have devised for BTA, these days: the four-tiered structure of this bundle has BTA squeezed between a crown tier priced at 17 Euros, and a novel, fixed-price, second rank, sitting not that much below the flagship.
Nobody’s going to be surprised that BTA is within spitting distance of top tier then.
Doubtlessly, this is all intended, but Jackbox Summer has the merit (or demerit, depending on one’s perspective) of making it obvious even to the most distracted of the passers-by.
Almost as surely, this is going to be profitable, but what kind of idea is it sending to us, the loyal customers?
I’m certainly getting the feel that Humble do not care all that much about tiers anymore; perhaps, if it was up to them, there would be only one price, just like Choice, and Monthly before it.
Buck tier, as I like to call it, has already been hollowed and lightened out in their recent output, and was partly responsible for the state of affairs with BTA.
Bundles are cheap, so why care, one might ask. The reason is that, the whole Pay-What-You-Want model rests on tiers, and BTA has always played the main role in that film.
With PWYW becoming a meaningless bullet point, Humble is risking to throw to the wind, what’s left of its identity.
