I’ve played that $2,000 Steam game and the ridiculous price is probably for the best

A game called The Hidden and Unknown (opens in new tab) released this week on Steam with an absurd price tag of $1,999.90. The twist is that the self-published game is purposely shorter than two hours, meaning it can be played without going over Steam’s playtime limit for no-questions-asked refunds. However, if you don’t have $2,000 to blow on this game temporarily, don’t worry: I’ve played it and you’re not missing out.

The creator of The Hidden and Unknown goes by ThePro and told TheGamer earlier this week (opens in new tab) that the high price reflects the value of the semi-autobiographical visual novel to them. They encouraged anyone who can’t afford the game to either refund it or just not buy it.
