Cyberpunk 2077, Among Us and Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout are found below Phasmophobia on Steam, hit horror game
It has been a fruitful year for several indie games, which have reached the top of the world and international popularity for just a few weeks. The first to cause this kind of surprise from Fall Guys, which burst with fury when it was released in August 2020. Soon after, even FG itself was overshadowed by the organic growth of Among Us, the fascinating game about imposters and crew. Now both of them have been overshadowed by a completely different title, this is Phasmophobia. Yes, a horror game is leading sales.
On Steam, Phasmophobia had managed to reach up to second place a week ago, but this title was not happy with the bronze medal. For this reason, they have already managed to surpass Cyberpunk 2077, to become the best-selling game on the platform. The most entertaining is how many games of gigantic budgets this little indie has easily surpassed. Cyberpunk, Fifa 21, and Star Wars: Squadrons are some of those further down the list. These are very impressive numbers for Kinetic Games, the young studio that managed to make such a successful horror title.
Phasmophobia is a paranormal and cooperative game, in which four players search for ghosts in abandoned places. It has just released its Early Access, but it has slowly grown until its number of active players has risen to 80,000. Its peak has not been separated, but the title appears to be maintaining its impressive player base. It is also one of the largest games on Twitch, accounting for a significant percentage of the content viewed on the platform.
Their criticisms on the platform are in Overwhelmingly Positive, a good sign for its developers.
