I take a look at the Steam charts to see what’s scorching on Valve’s platform. And daily, I’m as soon as once more shocked to see Bloons TD 6 hanging amongst Steam’s hottest titles. The colorful tower protection sport all of the sudden exploded in reputation late final yr after a considerable sale and a few huge Twitch streams, and now one other low cost has introduced the sport to even better heights.
Bloons TD 6 went 80% off over the previous week (sorry, the sale simply ended), which isn’t even the most important sale within the sport’s historical past. However, it introduced the sport to a peak of 53,943 concurrent gamers yesterday, as SteamDB exhibits, up by over 10k from the earlier peak in January, which occurred after a 90% low cost.
Tower protection is a venerable subgenre of technique video games, and the Bloons sequence has loads of nostalgia constructed up from its days as a free Flash sport, however it’s nonetheless wild to see Bloons TD 6 in comparable standing to Steam video games as huge as Future 2 and Civilization VI.
There was additionally a significant replace earlier this month with a brand new character and map, so Bloons simply continues to inflate with content material.
