Monaco Nets $120,000 Before Launch
This will allow Pocketwatch Games to pay back investment from Indie Fund.
The latest indie game phenomenon Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine has gotten a great response thus far from critics and audiences worldwide – so good in fact that it has been able to pay back the initial investment of $100,000 provided by Indie Fund.
Pocketwatch Games developer Andy Schatz stated on Twitter, “Man our direct sales have been crazy good with all this press. After Steam/Humble fees we’ve grossed $120,000 since December 10. Have to pay back $100K loan from Indie Fund first.”
Considering the game hasn’t even released yet, this is nothing but good news.
Monaco was available for pre-order on the Humble Store in December with Steam pre-orders staring on April 17. Within only three days of its Steam pre-orders, the game garnered $120,000. The official launch date was April 24th.
Monaco is essentially a cooperative heist game that takes place from a top-down view, wherein players will be able to choose specialized thief characters to complete different puzzles.
