In the topsellers of Steam are mostly hotly awaited or freshly published top games. But again and again the sales charts are whirled by small hit games or attractive offers. Currently, surprisingly, an insider tip mixes among the bestsellers, who has actually appeared almost two years ago. What’s going on there?
Does Steam have a new darling?
The top of the Steam Topseller is still going to Elden Ring (if we leave the steam deck as hardware outside), but apparently the PC players just seem like have found a real insider tip from 2020 : Ring of Pain (Source: Steam).
The gloomy and slightly wound game is a Dungeon crawler with a card game system . You have to put various monsters and challenges in the word-oriented ring dungeon, because you will set the different creatures in the form of a card in front of the nose.
You have to meet strategic decisions to survive – fight, sneak, flee – it’s up to you. Look at the lap-based Rogue-Lite here in the trailer:
Why is Ring of Pain now a top seller?
Since the end of March 2022, the Dungeon Crawler has been supplied with a fresh update since the end of March 2022. Ring of Pain certainly belongs to the real insider tips, because the game can 92 percent positive reviews write to the flag. Recent reviews are even 100 percent positive.
Why is it so successful right now? Ring of Pain is currently equipped with a strong discount of 50 percent on Steam and can thus be acquired for narrow 9.99 euros. That should surely stimulate for some purchases.
In addition, the game is just part of the Humble bundle “Stand with Ukraine” , which once again led to the popularity and discovery of the PC games. Incidentally, the bundle includes 124 games, does not even cost 40 euros and revenue will be 100 percent donated (at Humbere Games).
Also on YouTube Ring of Pain is played straight from some large content creators – all ahead of Handofblood. Not infrequently, the buy button glows on Steam when popular streamers and Youtuber gamble less well-known games on their channels.
