The best part is that it helped saving the developer. I'm glad to hear that, because most people say this game is amazing.

Yeah. This is a feel-good story. :)

That's good to hear. I absolutely loved the game, the music is quite nice. It isn't selling massive numbers but the fact that it's enough to get the developers happy is good enough for me. As long as they're making a living off their games.

Steamspy says the game sold 3,656 units on Steam.

Revenue is 20x as much on Switch.

Its priced the same on Steam & Switch, however i dont know if its had any past discounts on Steam.

Assuming all units sold are the same price than Switch version sold 73,120.

I don't know the proportion of revenue-per-sale it is per console, so that could fluctuate a bit.

Revenue would sales X cost, wouldnt it?

Youre thinking about profit i think.

No, I mean I don't know how much of a cut the publishers get on Steam compared to the Switch. Profit is revenue - expenses, so I assumed that it just meant the revenue they get themselves.

I think Nintendo’s release funnel with Indies has been doing a lot more good than harm. Also, Nintendo’s News section that pops up each time you bring Switch out of sleep mode must be helping digital sales a tremendous amount.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

thats great for that company. Hadn't heard of this game, it looks pretty sweet. I actually might pick it up at some point now.



It's wonderful to hear so many Nindie success stories and hopefully Nintendo continues to provide a solid platform and support for smaller developers.



The flow of release on Switch is just perfect. There is a good quality overall and there isn't too much games releasing at the same time.

Good to hear it sold well and it managed to reward the team like they deserve. The game is really good.



It's a really good game and the storytelling is actually well paced.
It's no a Link to the Past, but then again, how many games are.

Glad to see it saved the developer!

So, the sales are like 60,000 then?

Steamspy says the game sold 3,656 units on Steam.

Revenue is over 20x as much on Switch.

Its priced the same on Steam & Switch, however i dont know if its had any past discounts on Steam.

Assuming all units sold are the same price than Switch version sold more than 73,120.

isthereanydeal.com lists the historic low for the price on as $11.24, so there wasn't really that big of a discount
