    Gotta wait for AoD 2. VD is too committed to his "fuck DLC" stance. The dungeon crawler is the most he is willing to commit. Shame too, I would gladly pay for an expac.

    Add a new hub city, a couple of new quest locations, some new weapons and armor and a new mechanic = :takemymoney:

    AoD is currently on sale at gog.com!

    It's only $4 off or so, but whatever. If anyone doesn't have it yet, they should buy it now.

    There could also be sealed sections of the city that aren't flooded despite being on the ocean floor - a mage tower or a vault of some kind, for instance.

    Full price is a relative concept these days as it varies from one region to another. Even the number of copies sold can be very misleading, for the lack of a better word, when games are sold via bundles. At some point the bundles accounted for 2/3 of Grimrock's sales, so while Grimrock 2 sold a lot less, it might have earned more money.

    Anyway, as of this morning AoD sold 32,746 copies (BMT, Steam, GoG, GamersGate) generating $804,400.82, which comes to $24.56 per copy.

    Must be proud to know YOUR sweat and tears brought in a net 800k thus far.. You did well VD and team :)

    At a moment more down to earth, do tell if you don't mind just how much of it is lost in taxation, revenues/fees, et al. I know it will be a disheartening amount, but am really curious. Again, if you don't mind and are of course able to.

    Probably a little bit more than that. EA's effective tax rate these days is 13%. Not necessarily representative with the international character of video game sales but it'd put them more in the realm of $450,000-$550,000.

    Finally bought AoD a couple days ago, loving every second of it so far. I restarted about 5 or 6 times which usually would annoy me but the way Teron is set up with each background filling in a different part of whats going on was really cool. Playing a merchant right now, I love being able to talk my way through anything.

    The combat seems kinda dull but I haven't done much of it, playing people/factions against each other is way more entertaining.

    That's fantastic! Obviously between distributors, taxmen, etc. it gets whittled away, but that seems like a great haul even spread over 11 years -- and there's no reason to think sales have dried up. I imagine this will have a long tale, with humps every time a new ITS game is released.

    On average most effective corporate tax rates are around 30% though.

    That's not how it works.

    In Ontario:

    Small business tax rate
    For tax years that end after 2015, the small business tax rate will be reduced from 11% to 9% over four years as follows:
    • 10.5% effective January 1, 2016;
    • 10% effective January 1, 2017;
    • 9.5% effective January 1, 2018; and
    • 9% effective January 1, 2019.
    As for Uncle Sam:

    Article XII
    Royalties

    1. Royalties arising in a Contracting State and paid to a resident of the other Contracting State may be taxed in that other State.
    2. However, such royalties may also be taxed in the Contracting State in which they arise, and according to the laws of that State; but if a resident of the other Contracting State is the beneficial owner of such royalties, the tax so charged shall not exceed 10 per cent of the gross amount of the royalties.
    3. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph 2,

    (a) copyright royalties and other like payments in respect of the production or reproduction of any literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work (other than payments in respect of motion pictures and works on film, videotape or other means of reproduction for use in connection with television);
    (b) payments for the use of, or the right to use, computer software;
    (c) payments for the use of, or the right to use, any patent or any information concerning industrial, commercial or scientific experience (but not including any such information provided in connection with a rental or franchise agreement); and
    (d) payments with respect to broadcasting as may be agreed for the purposes of this paragraph in an exchange of notes between the Contracting States;

    arising in a Contracting State and beneficially owned by a resident of the other Contracting State shall be taxable only in that other State.
