1 Year On Steam Anniversary

One year ago CS2D 1.0.0.5 has been released on Steam!
Let's celebrate this with some numbers! Hooray!

Some numbers
  • We rolled out 2 full updates and several patches since Steam release
  • nearly 1 MLLION free CS2D liceneses have been granted on Steam (991,840)
  • 862,870 people downloaded and started (recorded play time) CS2D on Steam
  • 4,931 people reviewed/commented the game on Steam
  • 89% of these reviews are positive (leading to a "very positive" rating)
  • Max peak simultaneous Steam players: 1,440 (Nov 18, first Saturday after release)
  • Simultaneous players on Steam last 2 weeks: min 10, max 109

CS2D does not have any internal tracking so I don't know the overall download numbers.
Given that it has several 100k downloads on various download pages (e.g. >500k on Chip.de alone) we can safely assume that the game has been downloaded (and most likely also played) by MILLIONS (plural!) over its lifetime.
This is a great success and I'm happy and very grateful that you - players, fans, supporters, developers, map creators, skin creators etc. - made all this possible! :steamhappy:

Update planned
I'm also glad to announce that there will be another CS2D update soon. We are trying to do it this month but we can't promise anything.
