RE: How many copies have been sold?

Oh boy. The difference in TDD and AMFP is not the jumpscares per se. It's the approach to scares and atmosphere. TDD was more intense and adrenaline focused (all the chase sequences, forced encounters, violent macabre content) while AMFP was more cerebral and subdued (less chase sequences, more psychological horror paired with some grisly visuals of human extremes and how the pigmen were eerily ''normal'' when they weren't trying to kill anyone).

Some people were expecting the TDD brand of horror.

RE: How many copies have been sold?

Okok guys, let's not deviate too far here. The main point of the thread is how many games have probably been sold thus far.

RE: How many copies have been sold?

Jens posted this in the mod forum 3 days ago, I'm sure he won't mind if I share it here:

our initial estimates are that we've moved only approx. 300 units since release, including preorders. This is undoubtedly due to the fact that plutomaniac has been scaring away customers by sending them pm messages with photos of his penis dressed in miniature tuxedos and top hats. if it weren't for him and his Mr. Worthington pictures we'd have sold at least double that number of units. but alas we can't get rid of him, because his uncle owns 51% of the Frictional Games shares and he has photos of thomas wearing lingerie while hugging Boris Yeltsin in a jacuzzi in 1998.

Dah! There's a reason I'm mentioned at the credits. Blackmail, those photos are way too kinky to be, oh let's say "accidentally", leaked! Proof pic coming for the non-believers...

EDIT: There we go!

TDD had like three or four jumpscares throughout the entire game, what I consider proper jumpscares anyway, while AAMFP seemed to rely on them a lot more.

Not sure what to think about sold copies, to be honest. I think they may end up around the same as TDD? ^^

.......What?

RE: How many copies have been sold?

TDD is better than AMFP, so it makes sense if it sold better.

I mean while I of course don't want any of the two companies (FG and TCR) to lose money and have to drop game development, I think it would just be fair if AMFP sells less and not as well just because of its famous prequel.

Low sales are often the only thing that gets developers to change/improve based on player feedback and I think here's it's particularly important to learn from the mistakes done.

Hopefully TCR goes out of business eventually. People wanted Amnesia: AMFP, and instead we got Dear Amnesia. All of the puzzles were bland, and really walking down corridors lost it's appeal after the first hour or so.
