Zeboyd sells more in a week on Steam than 18 months on XBLIG

Cthulhu Saves the World developer bundled RPGs for release

Developer Zeboyd Games has revealed its two RPG titles sold more on Steam in less than a week than they did in over 18 months on the Xbox Live Indie Games service.

Zeboyd released Cthulhu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII as a bundle on Valve's PC download service just recently, after making both games available over Microsoft's indie store on Xbox Live.

"We are pleased to announce that Zeboyd Games has already made more revenue in less than a week on Steam than we have in over a year and a half on the Xbox Live Indie Games service," said developer Robert Boyd.

Zeboyd Games was one of the first developers to speak publicly about vote rigging on Microsoft's indie service, suggesting it was far too easy to manipulate rankings and create more visbility for titles.
