I think Aavegotchis are awesome. But to get hooked, you need to be able to try it out. Obviously, we all want the prices of our stuff to go up. However, that will not happen if we don’t get a lot more users.
How about adding new items that are of rarity “plentiful”. While common is like 1000 each, plentiful would be something like 10.000 each. There needs to be so many of it, that people would not bother buying it all up. Maybe even have something like “unlimited”, that you can buy for 1 GHST each and the Maall just never runs out of it. Obviously those items would just be cosmetic and would not alter traits.
Another possibility is selling Pets. You could offer Pets that can be bought and played with, even if you don’t have a Gotchi yet (since no one wants to spam a lot of cheap Gotchis into this realm). Again you could have some that are just cosmetic as far as the Gotchi is concerned (those would be unlimited) while other pets will buff the Gotchi when paired with them.
Ofc, those are just some suggestions of the top of my head. Anything cheap to get people to try this out would be great. And obviously we shouldn’t devalue anything currently owned by people.
