Indies having great success on Switch is kinda huge news for Nintendo in the long run. Present indies, future big publishers / developers.



Around the Network

I don't know anything about the game, but I'm happy for them that the Switch port was such a windfall that they can stay in business!

As someone who uses both the Switch and Steam, it doesn't really surprise me... I personally use Steam for games that I thereafter sink hundreds of hours into (from RPGs to 4x to grand strategy games), so I honestly don't buy games on it that much. On the Switch, meanwhile, I've purchased a ton of smaller indie games as it feels like the absolute perfect platform for them.

Wouldn't be surprised if other people behave similarly.

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.

I guess there is a good chance to have sold close to 100k on Switch. The share Nintendo takes from digital sales is probably higher than what Steam takes,probably the revenue per game sold from thirds is bigger on Steam.

Isn't it like 30 % for all publishers though ?

Indie games have really done amazing on the Switch. This will benefit both sides.
