To supplement Valve's weekly bestseller lists,
a post on the Steam Blog
recaps the 20 top-selling new games released on
during the month of April 2019. Here's an outline of the criteria they
came up with for this report "To generate this list, we started by enumerating
all the games released between April 1 and April 30. We then looked at revenue
earned by each of those games in the first two weeks following that game's
release. From that list, we took the top 20 games by revenue to make our final
list. Finally, we sorted the 20 games by release date." Here's a reformatted
version of this list, which, as they say, is in release date order:
