I’m into browser based web development, do you have any sales statistics on browser based games, specifically RPGS? I’ve built quite a few games and am wondering what market I am looking at, going rates, sales and conversion rates.
No. I don’t have sales statistics on browser based games but I promise to put online any stats I can get. What I would like to add is that in my personal opinion, browser based games could profit quite well from advertising: selling ad slots that could be seen thousands of players each time they click icons would be a great place to advertise for some companies. The ones who would have free account would see all the ads. The ones that had premium accounts (which could cost them $$) would get access to ad-free site.
I have little experience with browser based games. If you want to suggest some games, let me know. I can ask sales stats from the sites you mention.
Update on 2009: Now we have sales stats available – proceed here for Domain of Heroes stats
