    Kinda suprised Human:Fall Flat is still selling, haven't actually played the game, but have seen a few videos and it just seems like a boring and slow puzzle game, the only difference being that you can walk around and play with others, but there must be many other and better multiplayer games, right?

    Everything else somewhat makes sense and i am not that suprised by those, just Human:Fall Flat for looking so dull, even the puzzles don't seem that hard or well made from what i have seen.

    maybe if your game averages less than 1 concurrent player you should consider just giving it out for free tbh

    Seriously, another DOTA game?

    Wasn't Artefact a DOTA spin-off of some kind?

    Because all that game did was show that the DOTA name isn't enough to make a game sucessful, i mean i think a few months later there was less than 100 people playing the game and it's gotten to a point where you can buy every single card for less than 40 bucks i believe while DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike have items that sell for a lot more.

    So yeah, GTA 5 has sold 110m units. Absolutely mental. Wonder how many of those are on Steam.

    At the beginning of 2018 there was a report that they sold around 10 millions on Steam. I assume it doesn't include Cockstar Social Club keys. The current number is probably close to 15 millions.

    If they hadn't delayed the release on PC the number would have been twice bigger.

    And still, multiplayer games win over single player ones, mostly.

    Valve's thought about the "positive review bomb" on AC: Unity: https://steamcommunity.com/games/593110/announcements/detail/1621770561051427036

    TL;DR: they're not quite sure but they decided to leave it be. Also FAQ at the end has juicy info about how reviews affecting game's visibility.

    Honestly it is quite refreshing that Valve opens up and shares their thought process and some inner workings this much.

    Almost like the only winning move was not to actually meddle at all or something. In the grand scheme of things "review bombing" is irrelevant beyond hurting devs' fee fees. On customers' end it just brings attention to a game at which point game will stand or fall on its own merits.

    Valve is making its own. Sounds like they still have rather amicable relationship with the original "modder" team: http://blog.dota2.com/2019/05/dota-auto-chess/

    Interesting, now they're doing this: https://steamcommunity.com/games/593110/announcements/detail/2565275416677184326

    But it's less interesting that they didn't sort these by revenues, eh.
