A lot of people praise me for my open-kimono style, sharing all the data on my games and such.
I’m not the first (I learned from Brad Wardell, Daniel James, and other generous GDC-goers!), and I know I won’t be the last! Here are a few numbers-posts I ran across recently:
- Sarah Northway’s Rebuild Post-Mortem (and follow-up numbers post). Sarah doesn’t get too specific on numbers for contractual reasons, but rumor-mongers at GDC seem to indicate that the game raked in more than the original SteamBirds! If it’s true, congrats! (Though it sounds like a big success either way!)
- Celsius Game Studio’s brief bit on Red Nova. AppStore launch only (so far?), and just pushed past 3000 sales. Awesome following along with the dev blog of this game.
- Lilt Line post on numbers. Actual article here, with a graph. This one brings a tear to my eye; I love lilt line :C Wish it did better!
I’ll try to post things more frequently. :)
