Q4 Sales Numbers: Soft As Usual

Q4 sales numbers are traditionally pretty soft. The heat of the big summer cons is fading, and folks who were stocking up for Christmas season have often already done so before October hits in earnest. Folks are trying to stretch the remaining year’s dollars more than anything. Our numbers reflect this, as you’ll see, with a few outlier upticks. The big spike in Atomic Robo RPG’s sales are due to the 820-ish steeply discounted PDFs sold via the Bundle of Fate +3; other games benefitted from being fairly new items in the catalog.
