Satisfactory Sells Just 9 Copies as Epic Game Store Exclusive [UPDATED]




/ 7 months ago

Satisfactory [UPDATED]

You would think the team who developed the internet smash hit “Goat Simulator” would have immediate success with their next game. However, it seems they’ve taken quite a beating on the front lines. Their new game is called “Satisfactory” and for some reason, it’s only sold 9 copies…. not 9 million, 9 thousand, or even 9 hundred. Just 9 once you factor in a few refunds. So what went wrong?

What’s the Game About?

It’s quite an interesting game actually. Played in first-person mode, it’s a factory building game. You explore an alien planet, there’s some combat with aliens, but most importantly, factory building. You create huge automated systems and technologies that looks like it’s right up my street for gaming. I’m sure a lot of people would enjoy something like this, so why only 9 sales?

Epic Game Store Exclusive

I’m not getting dragged into the debate about Epic and their business. I’m of the school that if you don’t like it, don’t use it and suck it up. End of. However, with this game being Epic exclusive, I just don’t think it’s getting the eyes on the prize that it would with Steam. Steam has a bigger player base, and more game-discovery friendly store, etc. It’s as simple as that, I don’t think people have seen the game or knew it was out. I sure as hell didn’t, did you?

Will You Buy It?

Let us know in the comments, does this look like your sort of game? It’s £26.99 on Epic Store right now, you can find it right here.

UPDATE

So it seems the developers tweeted this as a joke, or at least, they’re saying it was after the fact. Seems I’m not the only one to fall for it either. However, why on Earth would they do so? It’s created a vibe of hate around Epic Game Store, fanning the flames if you will, to which they’re exclusive. I can’t see how this is a smart business move at all. April 1st is long gone Coffee Stain Studios…
