@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. :)

Realizing that 2020 is the only year since 2015 that I haven't made a RM game. Maybe I should do a tiny one to keep the streak?

Egg-sitting minigame is coming along nicely. Are you a bad enough dino to keep all these raptor eggs warm?

I forgot to post the animated version of the previous map I was working on. I'm still arguing with myself on if I like the stark blue ground better than the undergrowth ground used on the waterfall map. Hmm...
now that fmod is free for indie(<200k revenue), it would be interesting to see someone add fmod support for rpg maker
