Q-Games thanks fans for 'phenomenal' sales

Multi-platform indie developer Q-Games saw its annual income double in the span of eight hours, thanks to a Steam community-voted sale on one of the studio's titles.

PixelJunk Eden was selected in a community vote to receive a front-page featured sale that dropped the game to $0.99 – 90 per cent off its standard price tag.

“Thanks to everyone who participated in the Steam community sale for PixelJunk Eden, it sold *phenomenally* well,” Q-Games founder Dylan Cuthbert said on Twitter.

“We just made our income to date, again, in just 8 hours, it was a huge success.”
