I was wondering if anyone knew the average number of paid downloads per year, per game.

Basically; how many copies on average does a successful game on itch.io sell?


When do you consider a game successful?

30,000+ Downloads of my upcoming game would make me happy and content. :)

I read an article about an indie studio that acquired just over 400,000 purchases of their game. Was wondering if that type of thing happens here on itch.io

Thanks for replying!

Happy Holidays to you and your family. :)


I can't imagine 400,000 purchases being possible currentlyat itch.io. It would have to be a killer game to do so.

Good luck!

Your games look cool by the way. I'll check em out as soon as I can. :)

Happy New Year!

Are you guys talking about 400,000 purchases on itch.io?

EDIT: No. I read that incorrectly.
