19 Godot games on February's Steam Next Fest

[I don't know if anyone from Ukraine is going to read this, and there's not much I can do anyway, but still: Stay safe out there in this fucked up times. I know of at least one Godot contributor from Ukraine, Xrayez, and I hope he's alright. And fuck Putin]

LUL inc. first month report

Spoiler: 592 copies sold - 57 refunds

Here's the Game

LUL inc.

LUL Inc. is a collection of 36 different microgames that will test your skills in a variety of genres. Can you beat them all and defeat the three evil machines?

Steam Page

Over the past few weeks, I've seen this game pop up here and there but I didn't really know what was its deal.

I even watched the announcement for the game, made in November last year: "Making a new forsen fan game together with 2Pfrog! - LUL inc. Development Logs - Part 1" and I thought, cool. Making a game for a particular streamer and catering to that community seems like a great idea. I'll check on the game in a few months to see how things are going.

That was at the end of November. It was published by mid-January, and now we're already getting a one-month report. Talk about speed!.

And it worked, too. It was played by Forsen, not to mention a bunch of other streamers I'm not even gonna pretend I know (I'm old, bite me!). You can check The Sea Horse channel for more streamers' videos.

Hell, Forsen even reacted to the report video posted only three days ago. And the game is apparently a regular in the Forsen subreddit. "500 of you retards bought LUL inc." received 571 upvotes a month ago (about a week after launching the game)

So, how did it do?

💡
The video contains a TON of data. If you like detailed postmortem, you should watch this one.

The essential points: both devs made about $605 before taxes. About $2.53/hr

But you wanna know what the coolest part of the story is?

The game has a single negative review on Steam (out of 90). And the reviewer...hates Godot!

A friend of our pal Obey the fist? I can't say, but they sure have similar tastes.
