Got to ask, because I find it weird business...

For most peoples (me included), one is enough...

Sort of. You get two copies of the game when you buy it. One for yourself, one to trade or gift, or keep in your inventory.

It's a bit of a "viral" approach, but I quite liked it. The game is worth the price even if you didn't get two for one.

Why should we be forced to buy 2 copies when we only want 1?

It's 2.50. You're not "forced" to buy anything.

Jesus, the steam sales bring out the worst in people sometimes.....

Price is irrelevant. I would prefer not to spend any money on something I will get zero use out of.

Except you pay as much as you would if you had one copy.
Stop being a troll, it's not becoming.

Far from a troll. I want to give this game a shot, but I'm not buying 2 copies of it just to only play one.

Why exactly?
Would you buy it if it was only one copy (at the same price)?

I actually agree with this guy.

And the price has risen to $4.99 from $2.49. So they're obviously forcing us to buy extra copy. Lucky for those who got it at $2.49 tho.

Holy Christ...it's 80% off and you're still complaining because it is an extra TWO AND A HALF DOLLARS?!?! Go panhandle or search the couch cushions to recoup the cost. Recycle some soda and beer cans. Seriously, do you know how stupid (and poor...maybe you could be a NASCAR driver? ) you sound?

Trade the extra copy for another cheap game that you will play. You have options.

You do sound like a troll whether you are or not. Period. Crying over $2.50. If you're too broke to afford $5 for anything you shouldn't be on here (I know, you said it's not about the money...but apparently it IS about the money). Some peoples' children... *shakes head* And go find some friends. Heck, if you're not completely socially inept you just might even find a local friend who will pay you the $2.50 for the extra copy out of the kindness of their heart. Either buy the game or don't but quit complaining. The game has good reviews and doesn't seem to be broken which is far more than can be said about games that cost 5-10X the price.
I swear some people sit around just trying to find things to complain about lol

I have limited budget for this Summer sales. Yes I'm stupid cheap and poor

I would like to buy this game only for myself, but they didn't give me option for that. And most of my friends already have the game from the Indie Bundle. Sure I could trade the extra copy for other game, but I'm not willing to have any other game worth of $2.5 as of right now. Because every penny is worth for cheap stupid bastards like me.

EDIT: Okay I just noticed the BOGO free. But still, I'm cheap bastard
