Gunman Clive’s Nintendo eShop sales surpass Android

Sales of Gunman Clive through the Nintendo eShop have now surpassed Android, creator Bertil Hörberg has confirmed.

Hörberg took to NeoGAF to share such information, presenting a graph that demonstrated the game’s steady sales performance on Nintendo 3DS.

“The game did get featured on the front page in the eShop in both markets a few weeks ago (day 43) and you can see a pretty clear bump that week, with about 2x a normal week,” Hörberg explained. “While it was a nice bump and I’m thankful to Nintendo for doing it, people seem to be able to find the game just fine when it’s not promoted as heavily.”

He continued, “What’s really incredible is the legs so far. There’s been a few smaller bumps to help maintain the sales; Nintendo posting the trailer on their YouTube channel, this thread getting reposted on every Nintendo website etc, but some of them are hard to see amidst the normal weekend bumps.

“The game has also been included in various lists on the eShop almost every week. But so far there’s hardly been any signs of the sales slowing down, I’m sure it will happen eventually but I’m hopeful it will be a slow decline.”

It’s certainly great to see such success through publishing a game on the Nintendo eShop, and here’s hoping more developers are attracted to the platform.
