Broken Age sales numbers compared to others via Steamspy

Recommended Posts

I was browsing Steamspy a bit just for fun, and I noticed today that Broken Age sales numbers were up quite a bit now compared to the last time I checked, so I thought that I would just for fun compare it to others, and I ended up with this list.

This is not a complete list of adventure games, but the ones I felt were most relevant to compare to each other. I'm not going to spend time to keep this updated as the numbers change anyway.

And I decided to leave out Telltales games, because they're a beast that plays in a league of it's own that are wildly more succesful then any of the competitors. They would take most of the top ten, and for those that wonder, they have sevens series that have sold more then Broken Age. Here's a link to them.

But here is the list I have. Do tell me if I should add anyone.

And tell if I've done any mistakes. This is a list compiled in barely 20 minutes, just for fun.

Kickstarters in bold.

Would episode 1 only of Life is Strange count towards its figures? It's been in a humble bundle.

I think so considering that Steamspy only lists one entry for Life Is Strange.

I feel like there is at least one other major modern adventure franchise I'd want in that list. Where are the Book of Unwritten Tales games?

Dropsy and Fran Bow are another couple of crowdfunded adventure games that were released last year, and were very good, but they'd both be somewhere at the bottom of your list.

And them, and Grim Fandango: Remastered. Grim seem to be a steady seller, since it according to Steamspy now have sold more then 400k copies. Hope DF gets a good part of that money.
