DriveTnru RPG Getting New Look – September 10, 2020

I saw this last night on DriveTbru RPG (DTRPG) website: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/. The next link isn’t necessarily how it will look once they finish the upgrade, but here’s a rough preview: https://preview.drivethrurpg.com/

From the preview link:

Welcome to our Redesign!

This is just a sneak peek of a few pages and not necessarily our final design.

We would love your feedback using the green icon in the lower-right!

I am seeing some differences between the preview and the current view. I think it’s an attempt to streamline the new site.

There is more to the website than just Role-Playing Games (RPGs). The sub-sites include Cards, Comics, Fiction, and Virtual Tabletop. Each sub-site and the main site do offer and Pay What You Want (PWYW) choices for ebooks. Both options include those items that are regularly Free or PWYW as well as items that are temporarily available as Free or PWYW. On the PWYW, you can choose $0.00 for the price to see if it’s something you would like. If you like, there’s usually a suggested PWYW price and you are free to order it again using whatever price you want to pay.

For many publishers on DTRPG, they offer the ability to do Print On Demand (POD). You pay the postage and a higher cost for the item than if you go the ebook route. Same for the items that aren’t books.

Another advantage for many items is a discount if the publisher submits a bundle that allows discounts if you already own some of the items. A publisher can choose not to offer the discount, but many offer the discount.

One advantage that Bundle of Holding – https://bundleofholding.com/ offers is when you purchase a bundle from them, they include the DTRPG ebook or e-edition items for free. I know Humble Bundle – https://www.humblebundle.com/ doesn’t offer a similar deal when you order a bundle from them.
