Overview: The Indiepocalypse has happened. No one is making money on Steam anymore. No wait, there are more than 300 games with more than 1,000 concurrent players each. You haven't even heard of most of them. High profile flops have normalized failure. Meanwhile, everyone forgets that more games are making more money on Steam than ever before.
