TuxGames‘ Michael Simms wrote in with this nugget ofinformation regarding Tux Games’ sales figures:

One of the most requested bits of information from Tux Games is ‘Whichgames have sold the most’. To answer that question for everyone we havenow added a box on our front page which shows the top 10 most populargames of all time, and it links to a page showing the complete chart ofall sales since the day we opened.

The “complete chart” that Michael speaks of is the Overall Top Sellers.

    Think of it this way. Majesty Gold has already outsold Q3A on their site. I guess that has its benefits.

    Judging by the ordering of items on the list, I think it’s time once again for “good idea, bad idea”.

    Good idea: Claiming that the packaging is being drawn by hand in order to shut up the weiners that whine and whine about how late SMAC is.

    Bad idea: Buying 25,000 tin boxes for use as packaging for the Linux version of Quake 3 Arena, selling a few of them, and then not paying your employees for two months in order to pay for storage of the tins in a warehouse in Mexico.

    Someone somewhere probably has a house built out of those Q3A tins. I wonder if TuxGames just picked up a load of them from a liquidator?

    Come on people, how do you expect Linux users to justify $45 for Quake 3 when they can just buy a Windows version for $19 WITH Team Arena and download the Linux binaries. THIS is one of the main reasons Linux versions dont sell.

    personally, I’m surprised they haven’t sold more TuxGames Baseball Caps. At least they outsold Wurstelstand, and I guess that’s all that counts.

    I am very surprised that Majesty – Gold Edition did not outsold at least Soldier of Fortunes : I thought it was THE best seller of the year, but that was peace of crap….

    I would suggest you to cut the price of Soldier of Fortunes, Quake 3 and may be Theocracy : that too expensive man, how can you justify to sell a Game like Soldier of Fortunes 46$ when it is 3 years old ? It is a good game though, I have it, on Linux indeed, and I bought it from Tuxgames 1 year ago, but please cut the price off dammit !

    Reasonnable prices would be :
    Soldier of Fortunes : 30 $
    Quake 3 : 30 $
    Theocracy : 25 $

    Also it would be a great Idea to sell Majesty for 30$ as well and not 37 $ : I am sure you can do that.

    Now for everyone : Stop trolling and go buy Runes : it is a great game, I have the demo and it is fun, I want to see Runes on the Top 10. Please Mr Simms replenish your Stock of Runes, if you can sell it for 25$, it is the Best Linux game than ever, every Linux user should buy it, so please help them…

    That showed up pretty high, I take it a little more than 200 were sold?

    I know we’re never gonna see real sales figures, but I am sure some would love to know.

    That the top two selling games have run out of stock. You would think that there would be something Tuxgames or LGP could do about this.
