Wow! Congratulations!! I saw your article on HackerNews and it got me back into these forums, which I haven't visited in over 5 years (real life got in the way of my indiegame dreams).

I remember this thread! I also remember thinking the game was no good ... but your hard work has paid off, and what I'm looking at is an exciting game I want to play. Well done!

Next time release it faster Smiley

I think you need a website/presence/SEO -- googling MoonQuest gives the steam store page as the first hit, but subsequent point at other things.

Thanks everyone, sales are going really well and it seems like the game is pretty stable and working as intended. Going back through this devlog is giving me nightmares about all the work that was required to get to this point!

Hope you all can find some time to play the game, even if only for an hour or two. I'm sure you'll get a kick out of seeing those early screens and gifs, and seeing how far the game has come. Big plans for updates this year!

Just went through the first 20 pages. It's amazing how far you've come with this project. Def something to be proud of.
I feel like you had a very naive and just "let's try shit out" approach during these pages, and seeing the community participating and making silly fan art is a nice touch.

Worth revisiting for sure.

Fingers crossed for you. I read some parts of your devlog and you went an impressive way Smiley For now game landed on my wishlist on steam, but as soon as I have more time, for sure I'll give it a try.

Bought it. I agree with the others, it's been really impressive to see this project coming such a long way. Allthough i wasn't entirely convinced from the start, i agree with that quote, the game has always had an "inviting strangeness to it". And now it just looks awesome!! Well done, and congratulations on the release  Beer!

The ratio of sales to reviews for ANY game on steam if phenomenally low, most games have no more than 10% of players who bought it actually write a review, usually significantly less (Dota 2 for example has a players to review rate of approx. 3%), just because there are few reviews doesn't mean there are few sales.

Even if you multiply 45 reviews by a 1:10 ratio or a 1:30 ratio, it's still a sad state of affairs. But eigenbom mentioned somewhere on twitter that "it sold well enough to allow him to continue", which implies way more than the meager 1k units estimation.

Good luck.
