Sales Numbers Higher than Ever on Steam says Indie Devs

Mike Bithell, creator of Thomas Was Alone tweeted some interesting insights into the sales figures of Steam content during the summer sale. It seems sales might be going through the roof. The Steam sale is less than 24 hours old, ... (PC, Steam)

Steam should really promote more mobile games. Give EA more competition.

Mobile? Steam doesn't do mobile at all though (save for their mobile app).

Hardly any RPGS on there. Nice sale though.

A lot of good indie's get packaged in bundles with other, less interesting ones. It's not surprising that they would all fawn over these sales.

There actually hasn't been any indie bundle deals like the past sales have had. Indie games like Thomas Was Alone are going for upwards of 75% off so they are pretty cheap. Some of them have trading cards too which some people will buy just for the cards and badges you can earn from them.

I hadn't realized that. I pretty much own every indie game I currently want and just assumed it was the same as last years, and even GOG's this year.

Good. Steam is a great service. I love my ps3 and all, but when the steam sales roll around, i only have eyes for my laptop.

Oh no, PC gaming is dying!

I know, it's been dying for 2 decades. lol

It's funny because PC gaming has actually been growing dramatically. There are more PC gamers than ever and there is more money being made on PC than all three home consoles combined (according to several different sources I have checked).
