Dollar Update

Update: April Fools

The latest update to Pixel Fireplace for OSX lets you burn your money. Literally! Type the new “dollar” command to activate the In-App Purchase window, click ‘Buy’ to purchase one in-game dollar, and then destroy it! NEAT, HUH?!?

Here’s what people are saying about the new Dollar Update:

“Party trick of the century.”

“It feels illegal, but it’s not!!”

“This thing needs a leaderboard, so I can compete with friends!”

“Dad, I was playing this game but now it says “credit card limit exceeded” can you fix it?”

Finally, a way to impress my family and friends with how baller I am.

“The sad truth is this would probably be a big seller if it were real.”

IMHO, if that April Fools was real it would still totally make money.

    LOL! This is great, it probably took some creative thinking to come up with also!

      Haha, it’s not actually in the app ;) (April Fools) It was one of those ideas where you think “oh god, what if we put this in? It would be terrible, but also really funny. Let’s make it an April Fools joke! :D”

    This thing needs a leaderboard, so I can compete with friends!

    Send me your dollars and I’ll think nice things about you as I waste them on stupid stuff.

    Dude, this is the best idea for an in-app purchase ever! Seriously, it’s brilliant — April Fools’ or not.

    If you’re worried about Apple pulling it from the store, release it as a separate “fremium” version.

    I “pledge” to burn at least one dollar in your fireplace. ;-)

      Hahah, I was surprised by the number people who liked it. It *may* make an appearance someday (as a way of donating). No promises! ;)
