never heard of it, you shouldn't be disappointed when no advertising effort was put in, or at least cause word of mouth like what happened with Demon's Souls

featured at least 3 times on the site. Its a PSN game not some highselling Japanese disc based game getting a US release.

Yea and a good value for 6.99, several single player modes and online/offline multiplayer

I intend to buy it, but I'm waiting for Trine to come out. I like to buy stuff in bundles.

Trine + Critter + Blood Omen (maybe)

Should keep me busy for a while.

How have you never heard of it? If you could read this title, you could read the other titles that had Critter Crunch in it. You only noticed it when you saw the sales were low. Also, I'm disappointed that they are disapointed. :( To be honest, I've heard of the game, but I never cared enough to find out one thing about it.

In my opinion when it's a new IP, there should always be a game demo for it. So people can try it and have a chance to be hooked by it and buy it. (Live does that for all games, I think PSN and Wiiware should do too)

What are we supposed to do, buy everything just to try it? Most gamers are on a budget, that doesn't make sense.

That being said, I bought it after a friend explained what the game was and recommended it. It's a fun fresh take on Tetris and games like that.

to anyone that watches a video of it in action.

I was hoping for a demo this week :(
but (according to one of the devs) it should be available the next week or so

still waiting for a demo to decide.

"While a demo is nice this game is pretty self explanatory"

That might be true but they should still have a demo. The story mentions a demo is coming so why not release it with the game? That made no sense. I would want to try a demo even on a game that cheap. The only reason to not release a demo is the game isn't any good. Make it a five minute demo maybe. Just enough to see if you like it. I think that would at least get a lot more sales.
