Blood or no Blood? That is the question...

I'm nearly done Rodent Rage and have started to...perhaps over analyze it a bit. I'm wondering what your opinion is on blood in games related to sales/demographics. Does having blood increase or decrease sales on the App store? I can easily take it out...

For those who have put a bit of graphic/blood content in their games, what has been your impression?

    Go with blood, You may have to use a 17+ rating, but is positive thing for some buyers. That, and most kids are using the parents accounts for their iTunes purchases anyway...

    Also make an option to turn it off, then you can put in your app description, Parental controls to limit graphic content or some bullsh*t like that...

    How does blood better provoke your audience on an emotional level? Is it just a cheesy gimmick or is it integral to the concept of the gameplay?

    Doom = Blood is Essential

    Mortal Combat = Gimmick

    I `agree with the Mortal Kombat sentiment - the game was average at best - the blood gimmick elevated it above that a little.

    The SNES version didn't have ANY blood - and was less popular as a result...

    Maybe blood sells, eh? ;)

    QS :D
