Just finished SteamWorld Dig.[..] 5/5 highly recommended!

The sequel is also very good.

I wonder if they should have built more of their own properties along the way. Even if the sales were 1/4 of a game that had a tie-in to a licensed property, the profit might still be better. And no risk of losing the license so you could sell the game for longer.

Easier said than done, probably. But I have to imagine they could have made just as good game with their own characters, if not better.

Fair enough.  I won't rule out buying a more recent Telltale game, next time there's a sale.

Coincidentally enough, a good article about the history of shareware just appeared in an unlikely place: https://www.hpe.com/...orrow-1809.html

The article draws the parallel between shareware and the current app stores, among other things.
