During the sale, the game sold a whopping 57,000 copies at an average of $2.03 per game. Some 17,ooo of these were paid for in the amount of $0.01, where as the next largest price range was $1-1.99 at nearly 16,000 copies sold. Meanwhile, four champions – Gods among men as they are – paid $50 for the normally-$20 game. Sales even spiked over on Steam, where it was not on sale.
“Steam sales rose 40 percent relative to the previous week,” said Ron Carmel of 2D Boy. “Our Steam sales tend to fluctuate, and it’s not unheard of for there to be a 25 percent difference from one week to the next (up or down), but the 40 percent increase came after a week that saw a 25 percent increase. It has been several months since we’ve seen this number of sales in a single week on Steam.”
When asked in a post-purchase poll, only 5.4% of the 2,300 that answered said that they paid what they felt the game was worth. Meanwhile, a whopping 22.7% said they paid only what they could afford at the time.
And the best part? The success has inspired 2D Boy to continue the sale until the 25th, so all of you who were late to the party can still partake in the fun.
