It’s amazing how well some games do purely based on word of mouth. Amnesia was released on the Humble Bundle as well, and is averaging at 10,000 copies sold per month.
“Despite that huge number of sales, what I think is more interesting is how good the monthly sales still are. Not counting any discounts, the monthly full price sales lie at over 10 000 units. This means that less then every 5th minute someone in the world is buying a copy of Amnesia,” read Frictional Games’ blog.
“I think we have never disclosed how much we Amnesia cost to make, so might as well do that here. The (exactly) three years of development cost a total of 360 000 US Dollars. It has since earned more than ten times that.”
That’s good to hear considering the return on investment was phenomenal.
