@bgillisp that, and depending on how cheap a game on sale is, some people will buy it just to have it.

+1 on the idea of reviewing each other's games, though I'd have to actually start buying other people's games before I could participate!

Yeah, I'd confirm that usually less than 5% of all of the sales of a game will amount in reviews. Usually it's closer to like 1-2%. It will differ from game to game though. And the reasons could be plenty. Remember that most people on Steam have a backlog of games, so don't be surprised if many of those who have bought one of your games, haven't actually played it yet at all.

Regardless, it's really pleasant to get nice, in-depth reviews of your game, so long as they're not toxic. A single review from a fan who genuinely enjoyed your game and talks passionately about it in a review or gives some interesting suggestions for you to consider in future projects is worth more than a dozen of negative reviews.

I'd also agree with what many said here that leaving a review is always a nice thing if you enjoyed the game. I always leave a review if I enjoyed a game, especially if it's an indie game that's not gotten enough attention yet. Even if your review is just a few sentences long, it's already a big help for the devs, and it is also a big help for the potential customers who are wondering if to buy the game or not. :)

Made a surprising amount of progress in these past two days. Really helps when parallax mapping breaks limitation and allowing me to be creative and make maps that match my vision.
Let's promote our amazing artists in RPG Maker community! I posted right now about my game Phil Alone on Twitter and I decided to thanks Lime Zu, the amazing artist that did all the pixel assets for my game!
I just realised that the reason behind me not being able to make a game may be the lack of my original resources. I just dont like the look of MV faces and sprites, lol. Guess I will have make my own art.
I'm posting a commission art soon! :kaoswt2:
So here's a fun/tragic fact about me: I have an awful memory. But to be correct, I have memory "leaks". My memory is actually amazing, my issue is I can't keep memories for long, in fact, I once forgot my name. :kaoswt2:
