Icon’s Self-Publishing Numbers So Far…

It is 31st December, 2011 – last day of 2011. I thought it was about time I did a full count of how many game units we have sold/freebied. I was surprised it was a little over a quarter of a million – sounds like a lot of people! I had around 100,000 in my head so that was a nice surprise.

Alas a lot of the bigger numbers were free downloads/free promotions, but even so – I was really pleased with the numbers.

I thought I’d share them – and as such they are included below broken down into the different formats – iOS, PSP & WiiWare. I didn’t include PC as the numbers really aren’t worth including (probably about 20 units total!).

I’d like to think that a good percentage of that number enjoyed playing them, and I want to say a big thank you from all of us at ICON to everyone who has played any of our games. Hope to see you again in 2012
