Awesome, it worked, thank you! Can't wait to play it.
I'm also a game developer as a hobby, I feel you :)
Hey thanks. I updated the Shop Tycoon (maybe something will inspire you). BTW: Your game looks great (Food riders), I think it could be popular on Steam. I hope you will release it on steam.
Thanks a lot!
I'd love to publish it on Steam but I'd like to wait until I know there's enough interest that I'll at least recoup the $100 fee.
What's your experience with Steam, how are sales going? (If I may ask)
I think you should give it a try. Shop Tycoon on Steam 3000 units sold vs Itch.io 11 copies, my other game Play with Me 40,000 units on Steam Itch.io 83 units. I think Steam has better algorithms (every year they increase the sale of games on Steam).
Wow that's very encouraging!
And did you do a lot of marketing? I know I've found you by looking for "tycoon" on steam since it's one of my favorite genres 🙂
Thanks a lot for your answers.
Thanks! :D I hope the big update will make the game even better.
No problem. No, Steam works a bit differently. In short: focus on creating the game and Valve & Steam will find players for Your game, I said also Valve because Valve employees select the games they think can sell and manually promote them. But Yes I use keywords in the descriptions or even the title of the game (Play with Me: Escape room). Also, Steam = 120 million monthly active users, algorithms, promotional tools for Your game (in Steamworks) etc.
