Shortly after we published our giant sales report, Defender’s Quest: By the Numbers, part 2, the Steam Linux client officially went public and was accompanied by a site-wide sale.
The Linux sale featured every single Linux-compatible game on the service, including Defender’s Quest. In preparation for this article, I asked the good people of Reddit’s /r/linux_gaming subreddit what sort of data they’d like to see, and today I’d like to answer both their questions and yours.
Over the course of the Steam Linux sale, we grossed $16,958 and made 2,079 sales. Let’s compare that to the various other Steam sales we’ve participated in.
