This is THE game where I am happy see devs selling badzillions of copies and getting more shekels. Good job, guys! We love you!

I am still quite sad that the Lua thing won't be probably ever fixed..

..wait. Perhaps in Factorio 2 they could fix it!

One million copies sold of a game while it still is in early access.... Very impressive!

I hope you crack the two million mark on release day!

That Interview is great!
From reading the FFF I already knew a lot of things but to have it all condensed down to a 1 hour interview is amazing in showing how Factorio grew.
Best thing? There's even a seconds part coming with more technical details!

I'm really looking forward to it - next week?

I have no perspective to compare so I don't know if 1 million of sold games is a lot or not, but I can do basic math and with 20 dollars/euros per one sold game that makes more or less...

20 milion dollars/euros

Even after cuts for Valve and whomnot... OH MY GOD.

So, lets crunch some numbers here...

Lets say, for this, that Wube keeps 60% of this, after valve and taxes and such.
And for arguments sake, lets say 1usd is equal 1euro.

Then we are at 12mill euros

According to wikipedia Wube software is about 3 years old, with the founder working on the game about 2 year more.
The same wiki saies there are 5 people working on the game. Im not sure if that is accurate, but lets say its 1,5 that, in average, over 3 years, plus half of that in the 2 beforehand.
That makes (5*1,5*3)+(2,5*2) = 28 man years, but there is probably some overtime etc, so say 30 man years.
GDP per capita in the Czech Republic is roughly 22000$, and lets assume that programmers make about 1,5 times that, add emplyment tax, insurance etc, and that numbers is probably about 50.000$ per year for the company, maybe even more.
We are now at 1.5mill euros/dollars.
There are most likely some other expenses, office rent, ISPs, server rent, purchase of computers, testing gear, Unity licence (its in unity, right?), and lets for arguments sake, say that the expenses are now doubled.

We are still looking at a blonde one from a multi-million euro/dollar/pound profit. All I can say is! The next game from Wube is gonna be even more awesomeer with a chooch factor to 11! #AvE
