I’ve made £100,000+ revenue from games so far

Last night I logged another payment on my accounts and I was overjoyed to see that I have finally hit the awesome milestone of making £100,000+ ($160,000+ at today’s exchange rate) from selling games. This revenue excludes my salary at Big Fish Games Vancouver.

My first game was sold in December 2005 so I’ve made £100,000 in 3.5 years. That’s about £28500 salary a year which is OK. Of course in the first few years I didn’t make much money, most of the money is in the last couple of years since I hooked up with BFG as a contractor. The money comes from 7 products which includes 6 casual games and 1 game framework.

It’s worth noting that, based on last year’s revenue, this year’s revenue (including BFG salary) will probably be close to or higher than the £100,000 mark (depending on if I can get some more passive income streams on the go that I’ve been planning – watch this space). So the moral is keep working hard and get really good at what you do, and it’ll pay off. Oh and also “Think Positive” of course! :-)

Now my next game sales target is to reach 100,000 units sold and I’m very close to that. I’ll post again when it happens.

    How many units of Unwell Mel sold?

    Hi Aaron. I’m afraid that due to contractual reasons with BFG I cannot give out sales figures of Unwell Mel or Fairway Solitaire. The game is doing very well though thanks.
