I recently played 7 Days to Die. This game has already made over $500,000, and is selling itself for $35, meaning they've probably made millions more.
Interestingly enough, this game is almost 100% identical to Paradise Falls, a BYOND game that I made about 2 years ago. The only major difference? 2D vs 3D. Its good to have 100% blatant confirmation that no matter how good I am, and regardless of what game I make here, that BYOND only guarantees failure for its developers.
Even more fantastically for me, that game was made with Unity, an engine that I would be an expert with by now if I had stuck with it, instead of falling back into this pit. If I had made Paradise Falls with Unity instead of BYOND, I would have essentially created this million dollar project for myself years ago.
