Revolution Software’s Charles Cecil has told GI.biz that the iPhone version of Beneath a Steel Sky is expected to hit the 20,000 units sold during its first month of release.
The game is expected to sell 70,000 copies during its first year and 100,000 during its lifetime.
“As a small developer it’s an opportunity we’ve been able to grasp and it’s made possible because of the advent of digital distribution and of Apple who have reached out to people to buy music and games rather than download it from pirate sites,” Cecil told the site during today’s Eurogamer Expo. “The great thing about the Apple system is that it’s so easy to use, it’s easier to buy it [than resort to piracy] and it’s cheap.
“It’s so exciting that we can take something that was released so long ago and put it on the iPhone. We’re in a wonderful position where we can exploit our own games in a way that you could never do at a mainstream publisher.”
