  • firemaplegamesfiremaplegames Posts: 3,206Member
    The Secret of Grisly Manor has had a little over 200,000 paid downloads so far.

    There is also a free HTML5 version of the game made in GameSalad, which is available on the Google Chrome Web Store and on the GameSalad Arcade. The free version has been downloaded a little over 100,000 times.

    It's also been featured as the Amazon free app of the day where it got an additional 102,000 downloads.

    Wow 200,000 paid now for Grisly Manor?

    I remember when he told me it was 100,000! wowee. That's awesome lol : )

    if you are going by straight downloads Epig games has had over a million downloads. But I think money wise Grisly Manor is prob the most successful game. Theres a non game app floating around that made like 3.5 Million but no one knows what it is just that it exists.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    haha funny you mentioned that tendrmer i was gonna bring that up, no ones even mentioned that in years now i think. But yeah like he said there was a app made with gs that made millions, but the identity was never given away as they wanted to remain anonymous.

    Most money made in a game besides that would be grisly manor, and the most combined downloads would probably be epig games collection. Most downloads of 1 single game would probably be doodle destroy, im not sure if 1 epig game broke a million downloads

    tiny balls and zombie drop reach no2 on the MAS(or 3?)
  • UtopianGamesUtopianGames Posts: 5,685Member
    Red ball of goo was a good one but Bumps is our biggest with nearly 100k.

    Gamesmold has had some success with spooky hoofs and the digger game (can't think of the name right now)

    TSB has also had some nice features and great games.

    Grisly was made in GS originally so that's the daddy atm....who's gonna beat it? will anyone every make a top 10 game with GS?...time will tell.

    i just want my app to sell 10 copies a day lol

    @tshirtbooth dont forget Tiny Ball, Zombie Drop & Red Block Remover they are also in this list
  • EinsteinAppsEinsteinApps Posts: 81Member
    @tenrdrmer I have heard people mention this before, about the non game app that made millions. My question is how does anyone even know or validate that claim? In every thread I read it was just people stoking hype, not that I don't think it could be done, but when I was 5 I also believed in Santa =(
  • tenrdrmertenrdrmer Posts: 9,934Member, Sous Chef, Senior Sous-Chef
    @EinsteinApps gamesalad released the limited info in an interview like 2 years ago.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

  • EinsteinAppsEinsteinApps Posts: 81Member
    @tenrdrmer are there any links to that interview now? I guess based on my personal experiences with people, governments, and shady businesses I tend to be highly skeptical of "success stories" without information that confirms it. For example Corona SDK could post an interview with a developer that did millions in sales but not disclose the application, the developers name, or anything to prove the claims, then send this mysterious person back the the receptionist desk.

    Although they do have a developer that broke a million in sales with Firemaple, but get the gist of my point =)
  • tenrdrmertenrdrmer Posts: 9,934Member, Sous Chef, Senior Sous-Chef
    I understand that but due to NDA's the GS dev who made the game could not even take credit. They made it for a client. And no I dont have the link. It was posted in the forum about 2 years ago.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

  • EinsteinAppsEinsteinApps Posts: 81Member
    @tenrdrmer - My google fu is pretty hardcore, and I couldn't find a peep of this interview after an hour or so of looking. I am pretty sure this was a fictitious story, but it is fun to think about. I have personally seen fortune 500 companies engage in this type of marketing technique, the company themselves never provide proof or engage in the debate. It's actually a form of political science, and it works by playing on emotions.
    I have bought and played all of your games, and enjoy them very much and think you are a very talented developer, but I believe this is akin to a fairytale!

    Yep Completely False. GameSalad paid some thirdparty WebSite to run bogus crap. You've got it all figured out.

  • EinsteinAppsEinsteinApps Posts: 81Member
    @SaladStraightShooter - So if a story was run on a random website and promoted or discussed in forums like the Gamesalad members forum where an alleged developer made millions, that would not affect Gamesalad Pro membership subscription rates? That would not catch the ears of potential investors? Get real... I worked as a strategic data analyst for the world's largest fragrance company, I can give direct examples and how it affects the bottom line from first hand experiences.

    @Tenrdrmer you guys are quick to blast some dude for posting a bogus story the other day about the crappy quality of Gamesalad's current state, and jump to major conclusions about the origin and creator but blindly believe in a story with zero evidence? Either this story is real or it isn't, this crap reminds me of the guys that post in the forums talking about making thousands a month, but when I dig in and do the research they barely cracked the 500 mark on the app store.

    Do I believe Gamesald is a great tool? Of course I do or I wouldn't be here. Do I believe someone made over a million dollars from a Gamesalad App without a shred of evidence? Of course I do not. Why am I bring this up? Well technically you did and I am trying to prove or disprove the creditability of this "urban legend" once and for all.

    @EinsteinApps sorry mate, but you're not a worker of Tax Control Unit (or whatever it's called in english), and you have nothing to do with our, or someones earnings. Maybe we all earn at least one million USD per month, but it shouldn't concern you.
    Mark my words - only people who earn not much (but a lot in their opinion) like to brag about it. So you can find many topics when someone says - "wow! I've earned 1000 USD this month!". But people who earn really a lot of money, don't like to talk about this.
  • EinsteinAppsEinsteinApps Posts: 81Member
    @uptimistik I could site countless examples of companies and governments doing so, documented. I am not accusing anyone of anything, I would like to read this so called article.

    @theMoonwalls Yea I hear ya, and agree but one can distinguish the validity of a claim by looking up the ranking data. You don't have exact numbers but you will be able to determine if it was successful.
  • EinsteinAppsEinsteinApps Posts: 81Member
    Does anyone know were I can read this article?

    lol at conspiracy theorists

    At the end of the day does it even matter. It doesnt effect anyone at all. They asked about the most popular game salad game and sales and stuff, and we told them what game salad said. If someone doesnt believe it fine, it doesnt matter and has no effect.

    Better off spending the hours searching for the article on making games instead.
  • EinsteinAppsEinsteinApps Posts: 81Member
    Lol at people who doubt conspiracies, post a link to this article or it's obvious that this is a big joke. Let me guess, you read the article too but for some reason can find it now?

    Oh by the way, I read countless articles and interviews that Iraq had weapon of mass destruction... I spent two years there on the front lines in charge of an entire platoon with an objective of finding them or obtaining information as to their whereabouts. I did not find a single person out of thousands we arrested and questioned who would confirm this claim...

    I mean I could easily show you documented conspiracies that were proven 100% true, but I will spare you from a psychology lesson since it is clearly way above your level of comprehension.
  • EinsteinAppsEinsteinApps Posts: 81Member
    @johnpapionmitis There is a difference between a conspiracy and a lie...
  • JohnPapiomitisJohnPapiomitis Posts: 6,256Member
    This is a internet forum man, not a country hiding nukes..

    But anyway, you cant find alot of the old threads because gamesalad switched there forum software and url over. So you can judge for yourself weather you believe it or not.
  • EinsteinAppsEinsteinApps Posts: 81Member
    I only believe what I can prove... This is a topic that has intrigued me before today (as it has been mentioned several times over the past yearish) and I was never able to find any information relating to this, granted I didn't start following the forums until July 2011.

    When others try and make fun instead of providing evidence it is pretty transparent that they have no proof. I am not saying it is true or not, just that this could be ended with a simple link...
  • tenrdrmertenrdrmer Posts: 9,934Member, Sous Chef, Senior Sous-Chef
    Yeah its a massive conspiracy for sure. I think Apple is in on it too cause they made our mac not retain a history for 2 years back of web surfing. Of course no one can find it. its freaking 2 years old.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    Be sure to put on your TinFoil Hat for this one.

    BTW your google whatever the hell you searched with is not all that. This took me 15 min to find.

    Well then... that settles it I guess?!?!?! Are serious, lawl at you being a troll and a moderator, the irony... this is the article?! You ever hear of Edward Bernays? Use your amazing google skills to find out who he was an apply his logic to this topic, be-careful your little brain might explode.

    I was respectful the entire time I posted on this topic, and was constantly insulted by these monkeys who wear moderator titles. You guys mention conspiracy theories while propagating one and attacking the person trying to prove whether or not it is true.

    Here is a conspiracy theory for you: There was once a developer that made millions off gamesalad for a secret app. Of course there is no links to the interview it was 2 years old, but it is true. Don't believe me? You must be a conspiracy theorist, look there is a vague mention on an old g4 article (which I am sure is the Stan Lee App). Be sure to put on your tinfoil hat though because it gets crazier... *whisper* if anyone asks about it we will say the dev didn't want to be named and we had to use our magic web erase tool to get rid of all the evidence.

    Hey @Tenrdmer I have kids buddy, I tell them santa, the easter bunny, and the tooth fairy is real, if they question it I will make sure to call them a conspiracy theorist. Good job pissing me off troll.
