Monaco Sells > 500K

PocketwatchGames tweets sales figures for Monaco: What's Yours is Mine, saying the stealth/heist game has sold more than a half-million units: "Sales update: We're well over half a million units of Monaco sold! (~520K), only includes about half the HIB sales since we are BTA." TLA check: HIB is Humble Indie Bundle, but BTA was a mystery (the definitions on Wikipedia and Urban Dictionary shed no light on this), but Joystiq fills in the blank that this is "Beat the Average."

Excellent.

Really good game, one of the only ones where random co-op is actually awesome as well. Wonder if they made much money on XBLA or if it's alllll steam?

But too tricky for drunken local sessions, though not as bad as Spelunky MP. Samurai Gunn sorts us out for that though these days.

It was actually part of a better bundle (all co-op games) a few weeks ago. I imagine that and the steam holiday sales are where a majority of the sales came from.

That bundle is still valid for the next 12 days.

Right BTA is "Beat the Average" since Monaco only gets money if people pay more than the average to unlock it, so only half the sales are going to them, although it's the more expensive half. Also, the money they get is determined by the charity sliders, i.e. how much people designate for the devs vs. charity. I imagine though, that most people just leave the 85% default.
