If your game is one of their top sellers I would imagine a single coder could live from it yes. I sell a game through them and it does quite nicely, but not enough to live on sadly. However they do have a lot of games on there selling lots more than mine

I have one on there myself. It seems that true twitch games (topdown shooters, old-style arcade games) do very well there.

If you download RealArcade their main Game Page has a "top sellers" list. I''m not sure if they same info is on their web page (I think it''s not, actually). It goes a little something like this:

Diamond Mine (aka Bejeweled on the MS Gaming Zone)
Cue club
Kyondai Mahjongg
The Red Ace
Claw (???? I don''t believe it!)
Bingo Slots (AAAAeeeeii! Surely they''re pulling our legs?)
3D Ultra Pinball
Castrol Superbike
Pretty Good Solitaire
Snood (Bubble Pop clone?)

Thanx,

What do you mean by the way with "Claw (????
I don''t believe it!)" ?

You don''t believe the game is a hot download.
I noticed it''s a side scroller. What is the game quality, if you played?

And what do you meant with?

Bingo Slots (AAAAeeeeii! Surely they''re pulling our legs?)

Well, Claw is over two years old, it''s been on the bargain shelves for years... and now it''s one of RealGames top sellers? Maybe it''s just seeing a new audience that is snapping it up. It''s just kind of weird to me that an old game would be that high on the charts.

As for Bingo Slots... come on, who the hell plays those games?!!?

AFAIK the relagames top sellers are based on conversion rate, not actual sales, so these games may sell more per demo downloaded, but not neccesarily the top sellers in terms of units.
puzzle games always have a high conversion rate, not sure why.
