Democracy total direct sales: 3,050 units (in the year since release)
Thats before I take off the 10% credit card processing fee, and subtract bandwidth and other costs. It’s fairly static over this period. There was a bump at the start of June when Democracy was in a newspaper in Denmark, that led to a big spike in sales. The last big sales spike was the christmas one, due to winning the game of the year at gametunnel and the knock-on press from that.
Theres a few extra dollars coming in from old sales links to regnow, maybe $100 a month. Plus theres retail sales from some very old deals that average around $200 a quarter, and my portal sales in total earn me about $150 a month, a trivial chunk of the total.
