Today we changed the way that episodes work in the Miya Before & After game. The game continues to be free to play, and paid membership remains optional. However, after today all new episodes will only be playable by paid VIP members. We will continue to provide the first 5 episodes free of charge. After episode 5, you will need to be a VIP member to continue to play the new episodes. You can sign up for a VIP membership here http://www.miyamackenzie.com/membership
I know this will be frustrating for many of you who love Miya Mackenzie and the Miya game. We really appreciate all the players who have been so passionate about this game and Miya appreciates her fans. However, in order for us to afford to create and manage the game, we need to generate revenue for it. We are a small company, and there are many costs associated with running a game like this. In addition to paying salaries for employees who design, develop and manage the game, we need to pay for servers to run the game and other software to manage the site. It’s expensive, so we need to generate revenue to cover those costs. The game can’t be free forever.
We have worked hard to keep the price of the game as low as possible. It’s only $6.95 per month, less than the price of a movie ticket. VIP membership can be cancelled at any time. And we provide a number of different payment methods, including credit card, Paypal, Ultimate Game Card, and mobile payments. We hope you understand, appreciate your support, and welcome your feedback either on our help site at http://miyamackenzie.desk.com/ or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
