The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 418
Chapter 411 .wall
The independent game award of the steam platform has undoubtedly exploded the game industry as a flashing index. After many manufacturers saw the potential and development direction of the steam platform, they abandoned their hostility and joined the cooperation.
Many people can’t understand why they would rather share with the platform to reduce revenue, and be willing to go online on the steam platform.
Actually, many people only see the surface.
For example, the original game can sell 100,000 copies and earn 10 million. After landing on the steam platform, it will sell two of the revenue to the steam platform, but the sales volume may double several times. On the whole, it is still profitable.
The increase in games has attracted users, and the increase in users has attracted games, and the two-by-two promotion has made the development of the steam platform very rapid.
Relying on the initial mobile game and web game users, and the users bound to the Hatsune Video Network, the steam platform has reached a user scale of tens of millions. After two months of increasing games, this number has reached 40 million.
At the same time, the steam platform is not only the launch of Huaxia, but it is also gradually being deployed abroad.
Of course, there was some resistance.
Tom Granger, a well-known gourmet video producer on the overseas website of the first audio video network, has recently encountered a little problem.
The steam platform was launched smoothly in the English Kingdom. After all, Europe was the first overseas market for Hatsune Video. However, some of his friends were very troubled.
“It’s terrible, I didn’t expect the steam platform to be able to get in due to censorship.”
In the voice, a person was speaking English with a strong accent and was complaining to Tom.
“Hey, man, don’t be discouraged, at least you can land steam in Europe, right?”
“But I have to worry about whether this software will be blocked that day.”
On the other side of the voice is Basil Ampton, who lives on the west coast of the Federal State. His country is also very economically developed, second only to China. This time the steam platform naturally chose the Federal State as one of the server installation locations.
However, there is one item in the user agreement of the Steam platform that cannot pass the federal law, that is, the uploading of games, the publication of comments, etc., which require certain censorship on the platform to release. The federal state believes that this harms citizens’ freedom of speech and requires Steam The platform was modified so that it does not need to be reviewed, and the steam platform did not agree to this modification due to various considerations, so it was blocked outside the federal state.
Now, although users in the federal state can log in to the steam platform through the European zone, it is legally “illegal.” The federal state has the right to cut off the domestic connection to steam at any time, using words learned by Internet users in the federal state. , That is, the “wall” falls.
The federal state has a large number of independent game producers, not to mention those big game manufacturers. The experience of the steam platform in the federal state also caused dissatisfaction among these people. They were strongly criticized on social platforms, but they were banned. , And instead can only discuss this matter with some pronouns.
After chatting for a while, Tom and the others still thought it was time to play the game, and started online.
The game they play is a new game on the steam platform, not an independent game, but a work by a little-known factory.
The name of the game is “Hell Paratrooper”, and because of the similar words, it is also called “the old driver of hell”.
This is a shooting game with a 45-degree bird’s-eye view. The general background is that the universe where the players are located has been invaded by aliens such as Zerg. Players need to control airborne troops to fight on various planets.
The number of weapons in the game is quite rich, and the characteristics are distinct, there are live ammunition rifles, pistols, flamethrowers, and beam weapons. In addition, there are vehicles such as tanks and mechas.
“Hell Paratrooper” has a game feature, that is, the weapon will not be loaded automatically, and the player needs to manually control the loading. If the handle is connected to the game, when the weapon is empty, a clicking sound will be heard from the handle, facing the tide The monsters that surged up like a sense of urgency.
But there are only these, this is an ordinary Wushuang brushing game.
The most characteristic design of “Hell Paratrooper” is friendly damage.
On the plane, the player’s bullets will not only kill the enemy, but also injure teammates, and even the materials requested for airdrops will also kill themselves. On the battlefield, players must not only fight against alien species, but also need to be careful of friendly forces. At the same time , This unexpected situation is also very happy.
Tom knew that this game was still played by the anchors of the live broadcast platform. He found it interesting, so he bought it with his friends and became addicted.
I have to say that the anchors are indeed much better at promoting games.
In the past, most of the anchors are playing the most popular games nowadays. Either everyone is “The Last Survivor” together, or everyone is “Breath of the Wild”, but since the steam platform, a lot of the fun of the anchor has become Discover all kinds of unpopular games on the platform.
For example, the game “Hell Paratroopers” was released in November last year. It was sold on SN4, PC, and Black Box. Until it landed on the steam platform, the global sales volume was probably less than 100,000 copies, but after landing , Was discovered by several anchors. In just two weeks, the sales of the game exceeded 500,000. The producer even asked the producer to write to the steam platform. Thanks a lot, and designed a Gauss rifle exclusively for the steam platform. For every player on the steam platform , this is just a microcosm. Due to the strong influence of the anchor of Hatsune Video Network, coupled with the various games on the steam platform, the two have formed a powerful combination.
For example, on the game details page of the Steam platform, you can see which anchors have broadcasted or are currently broadcasting the game. Clicking in, you can jump directly to the live streaming page of Chuyin Video Network, and watch the host’s game process to decide whether buy.
In the live broadcast area of Chuyin Video.com, when the anchors broadcast the game, they can also put the game name tag. If the player feels interested, click the tag directly to jump to the game purchase page of the steam platform and place an order.
Anchor needs different game content to give viewers a sense of freshness, and the game also needs a more intimate way of publicity, and Chuyin Video Network and Steam Platform have both of them.
Now, the biggest regret for many players is probably that the two games “The Last Survivor” and “Breath of the Wild” are not logged on to the Steam platform. Even if the exclusive agreement of these two games expires in the future, the players’ accounts cannot be transferred. Here it is.
But at the same time, due to the existence of “Monster Hunter”, players have a lot of expectations and expect this game to bring them surprises.
In a small village in western China, some people are doing things that have nothing to do with these things.
