RPGWatch Curation:
Exploration, choices with consequences, factions, a dry sense of humor, collecting everything, lots of quests, challenging fights, multiple quest solutions - a typical Piranha Bytes RPG!

That seems a little early for a 1/3 off sale. DOS2 is only discounted 10%.

DOS2 sold 1 million, Elex sold at best 350k (140K on Steam, let guess 40k on Gog but that seems very optimistic, and 150k on console, Steam forums don't seem over crowded by console players).

On Steam Risen 2 is 1.3 million, and Risen 3 is 500K, steamdb numbers.

Not fair to compare with risen x since these games have appeared on humble bundle bundles a few times.

You mean Risen 2? Because if you mean all Risen how you explain the humble bundle difference between 2 and 3?

From a small number of quotes along time, I noticed that sales don't change widely number of sells of Steam keys. Sales don't change 200K to 1.3M.

But a special bundle that can be different, usually 1M+ aren't in bundles.
