interesting dustforce sales article

Post by macaca » Wed Nov 06, 2013 9:43 am

Hey Matt, I came across this blog article on the sales data for dustforce written by the developers. If you haven't seen it you might find some of it interesting. It surprised me that the midweek madness sale they did on Steam didn't generate any word of mouth sales despite selling a ton of units, while the humble bundle sale amplified their post-bundle daily sale-rate by 4-5 times. Pretty interesting.

Their day 1 sales netted probably what we've made (ignoring the PS Plus deal) on both Steam and PS3 life to date. :-/ Because of our poor sales, it seems unlikely that we'll be able to get any significant promotions (like midweek madness) on Steam. We talk to the humble guys, but it seems like a weekly sale would be our only option for Retro/Grade since a Mac/Linux port would be to hard. I'd love to see that happen, but it's up to humble...
