Not saying Mike did not consider this as a reason. My initial guess is Family Man was part of the Humble choice back in May 2021. Folks who wanted it could get it as part of of the Choice for cheap, or if they did not want it, could trade/sell it off. This likely satiated the Steam key market. From a glance, the game is going for as cheap as 0.35USD on the shady key sites. In either case these folks would only show as activatations and not sales, and that is still not factoring if they are sitting on keys meaning you could not even look at activations to tell this story unless you know how many keys are in the wild versus what has been activated.Attached: 1 image Let's talk about the Epic Store! 🧵 #GAMEDEV THREAD TIME 🧵 The Epic Store is fascinating, because it overwhelmingly has a very specific clientele -- younger people who play Fortnite And while that doesn't usually translate into people who will pay money for any other games on...mastodon.online
Interesting thread on how a small game on EGS outsold the Steam version in the past year. Mike's theory is that the Epic userbase skews towards younger Fortnite users who are more interested in cartoony games than the average Steam user. I think that's reasonable, but I also think the fact that Epic's library is much smaller than Steam's and there is a front page carousel that lists all games on sale (when a major event isn't going on) are also possible factors that help give it more exposure compared to Steam.
