We are continually fascinated by the number of amazing games coming out on Steam each month and how much variety there is in what becomes popular. In any given month, the most popular new releases represent a wide variety of styles, genres, and themes. They may be worldwide hits or they may have a stronger audience only in particular regions. 

So, we're trying something new with this post by taking a look at the 20 top-selling games released in the month of April. 

To generate this list, we started by enumerating all the games released between April 1 and April 30. We then looked at revenue earned by each of those games in the first two weeks following that game's release. From that list, we took the top 20 games by revenue to make our final list. Finally, we sorted the 20 games by release date.


Totally Accurate Battle Simulator, a wacky physics-based tactics game released in Early Access on April 1st, 2019. Appropriate release date for a game that doesn't take itself too seriously, right?
