I think I picked it up for about £13 on Switch and I thought that was an absolute steal. Yes it’s short but a) it’s fun, b) it’s cheaper than a night out (per your comparison), and c) I like supporting indie developers who come up with fantastic original ideas.
On a similar note, I picked up the REALLY SHORT Sayonara Wild Hearts the other night. Finished it in all of about 2hrs. The game was under a tenner in the sale. I felt it was short once it was through but I didn’t experience any buyer’s remorse after the fact. Again, I felt happy that my money had gone to an(other) indie developer making awesome original games.
