The Planet Crafter Conquers Steam; Dread Hunger Continues to Surprise

Elden Ring doesn't want to leave the throne of Steam bestsellers, but there are interesting things happening on the lower spots of the top 10. The Planet Crafter and Dread Hunger are doing very well.

Like every other Monday a list of the biggest (by revenue) bestsellers of the previous week on Steam has been released.

Elden Ring undefeated

The sales leader remains Elden Ring. This is the sixth week in a row, in which the new RPG fromSoftware outclasses all the competition.

Great results of The Planet Crafter

It is worth noting the high sales of The Planet Crafter. The game debuted in early access on March 24, but only last week it managed to break into the top 10 of the biggest bestsellers.

The devs from Miju Games have also other reasons to be happy. On Steam, up to 95% of user reviews are positive, which is categorized as "overwhelmingly positive" reception. The game also achieves good activity results - yesterday, at the hottest moment of the day, the title was played by 14,253 people simultaneously.

Dread Hunger continues to surprise

Continuing excellent sales of Dread Hunger make the game one of the biggest surprises of this year. Last week it was the fifth biggest bestseller on Steam (a week earlier the title took the seventh position).

What's more, the game sets a new activity record every weekend. Yesterday, at the hottest moment of the day, the title was played on Steam 100,410 concurrent users. For comparison - in the first weekend after the release it was only 7.9 thousand players.

A good debut was recorded by Death Stranding: Director's Cut and asymmetrical multiplayer horror game Midnight Ghost Hunt. In addition, thanks to a special deal, Disco Elysium: The Final Cut returned to the top 10.
