Interesting suggestions and experiences. I got a slight update on the story.
First i wrote a civilized and well mannered message pointing out my game + other Dreamcast homebrew are on the list and asking him/her for an explanation.
Big surprise, he/she didn't even bother to reply despite having some activity
1-2 days after i noticed the item (only mine) is removed from the page so i wrote another message. This time suggesting he/she could share profit or ask at least for permission. Again asking for an explanation while telling him/her now that it must be easy to rip off people and hide.
Even bigger surprise! This time i got a reply. Probably cause i mentioned that i have screenshot and backup of the item page hahaha
Hello I immediately removed the listing as soon as I saw the original message. Very sorry if you were a part of this game. This game did not have any sales so there was no profit. Sorry again.
Deadly serious business
According to the page the item was online since 5th January, 158 views and 11 people put it into their favorite section.
I don't know if it's anything to go by but the profile says on Etsy since 2015 and 2562 sales (compared to 2506, 7 days ago). If that's true and the average profit from each game is about 5-10$ then it might be more decent profit in 2 years (or maybe only months) than a lot indie devs have.
Here are some archived backup links just in case. Maybe i should prepare some stakes ><Witch
