Kodoani.com – The official Twitter account of the mobile game Itsuwari no Alice revealed the monthly cost of maintaining the server and a condition that players need to meet in order for the game to not terminate.
On July 15, it was announced that the title would no longer receive new content. Now, after the latest maintenance on July 31, “server cost counter” and “paid gold coin counter” have been included in the game.
The paid gold coin counter tracks how much in-game money is being spent, increasing as players spend their gold. Itsuwari no Alice will apparently continue to work as long as the gold coin counter paid is not lower than the server cost counter, that is, as long as sales of in-game currency can cover the server costs .
Itsuwari no Alice’s management team publicly revealed the game’s operating costs for the month of August on Twitter. This amount includes the cloud server, server maintenance, chat system, and customer support costs.
The total server cost for the game in August amounted to nearly 2 million yen, with the main cost being the cloud server fee.
In addition, starting with the July 31 maintenance, a “fund-raising shop” was introduced in the game. This is a shop where users can support the management team by spending their coins on items like “fried chicken for team dinner” and “clan expansion”.
And strangely, after revealing the new way of working, thanks to the players, Itsuwari no Alice reached its month activity goal in just 5 days. It seems that Japanese players are excited to spend money to keep the game afloat.
