In one year, Octodad: Dadliest Catch
has made $4,902,945 in gross revenue, with 459,735 units sold across PC, PS4, Mac and Linux. Not bad for a game starring wobbly, paternal, pre-table takoyaki.
Developer Young Horses shared
the stats in an infographic, noting that 61.1 percent of Octodad
copies live on PC and 32.6 percent are on PS4. Mac is 5.5 percent while Linux is 0.8 percent of all copies sold. In terms of total revenue, PC composes 55 percent, PS4 is 39.2 percent, Mac is 5.3 percent and Linux is 0.5 percent. Keep in mind that Octodad
was never a PS Plus free game
"It was never a free PS Plus game, but folks tend to think it was because it was announced at the same time that Don't Starve
and some other games were as PS Plus at E3," Young Horses President Philip Tibitoski told Joystiq in an email today. "I'm not sure how different our revenue chart might look because I don't know if there's a drop off in sales after you go free, and how many customers you might gain / lose. A lot of that depends on the type of game. I'd wager it can be a good thing for something that's multiplayer or competitive since friends convince friends to hop in and buy."
Octodad: Dadliest Catch
took two years and seven months to develop, with nine core team members and 28,208 hours worked. Regarding the game, 37 percent of players completed the story campaign and YouTube Let's Play videos of the game earned more than 200 million views combined – Pewdiepie snagged the most, with 8.4 million views.
