Air Hockey has been in the App Store for about 5 months now. In the life of a video game, that’s forever. Watching sales on a daily basis has been an interesting past time. I threw together a weekly sales stats chart to show the big picture of what’s happened over the last 5 months.
As of December 28th, Air Hockey has sold 203,485 copies. Air Hockey’s been priced at $0.99 since its release. Do the math. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions from the rest of the data. I’ll summarize what I’ve learned: holidays are nice, free competitors aren’t all that great, free competitors aren’t all that bad, and listen to your customers.
After the launch of our next (still secret) game, I look forward to hearing from those who buy it. Like I currently do with Air Hockey, I’ll pass along a few free promo codes for the new game on twitter. To get in on that action, follow us on twitter.
Happy New Year!
