Same in europe. Same in the world I guess.
Still C2 will have more value for game designers than a phone. So it still isn't that high priced.
It might seem a lot to you, but again, consider C2 a tool.
Tools like 3dstudio max for professionals are licensed for like thousands of $.
And 3dsmax can "only" do meshes.
C2 is delivering the ability to make a full game. 60 $ for an indy developper who is intending to make incomes from his game is not much to pay and a very reasonable price.
it is a matter of perspective and priorities (investing in a tool that will suits you and enhance your workflow).
If you want to make games for free, C++ coding language and game developement oriented libraries such as SDL are available.
They require you to learn to code though, but they are free and open source.
C2 prevents to have to code in a programing language and still gets you a working software in the end. And you only value that to 10$ ?
