EV2 will be a commercial game for $15 or $20 I'm not sure yet. I will be asking for betatesters when appropriate and they will get the game for free. I might distribute it to chosen people as well.

Zara will soon have earned more money in the span of year from me than any other game developer.

Wow, those are your best graphics yet, Zara.   Do you plan on adding background sprites, or is does that make it too complicated?

The lengths Arc will go to in the name of cocking things up.

Release a demo! Integrate with Steamworks! Bundle a (slightly) upgraded version of the original as freeware! This is the way to achieve sales.

Powerups (tentative subject to change)

Fire Fruit - throw short range fireballs that can destroy enemies and bricks
Sky Feather - double jump
Metal Ring - can't be hurt by regular enemies, spikes
??? - freeze enemies next to you, can climb the blocks
??? - teleport short ranges
??? - throw punches that knock enemies and blocks backwards

You'll notice I never said anything about changing the game, just the marketing.

Warp Window - teleport short ranges
Hand of Fury- throw punches that knock enemies and blocks backwards

Item name suggestions.  Also, I think it would be cool if the items' names/appearances changed based on how evil things are.

Suggestion you've probably already thought of, but ideally, power-ups will be used in a Kirby Metroidvania style where they are not permanent, but holding onto them will be important for the back-tracking and collecting and whatnot for extra depth/challenge in getting 100%.

Also, everything Bongo said.

$15 or $20 is way too much. I'd go with $5-$10.

$10?  That's a great price!

$10 is the magical balance point where you're still an indie but not, like, XNA indie.
