Survival Horror Game Sees Linux Sales Around 1%
It's been one year since Frictional Games launched SOMA as their latest science fiction survival horror game. The game is supported on Windows, OS X, Linux, and PlayStation 4. This game saw close to half a million sales, but just over 1% of them were from Linux gamers.
Frictional Games shared via a tweet that of the 450,000+ SOMA sales, Linux accounted for only around 5,000 sales, or about 1%. SOMA is powered by Frictional Games' in-house HPL Engine 3.
While the Linux sales were rather minimal, they appear to plan to continue porting their games to Linux in the future.
Too bad more game studios aren't more open with their Linux sales figures. The Steam Survey results continue to put the Linux gaming marketshare at around 1% or less.
