Robot Cache is a new digital PC games storefront that will let you sell your used games

@SHPanda also, if Steam earned $3.5 billion in 2016 from taking their 30%, then they generated somewhere in the region of $12 billion of sales for games/software through their platform. Meaning $8.5 billion (roughly) ended up back in the hands of publishers/developers.

Whilst it may seem them earning a huge amount or revenue from just selling other peoples games, they give pubs/developers access to (according to the latest figures) 67 million monthly active users.

@Simatron3000 the clever thing here is that the dev/publisher still gets 70% of the value, which is what they get for a new sale on Steam/GOG, etc. So effectively, as long as this 70% is around what they get for a new sale on Steam then they are no worse off.

The extra 25% from new game sales is just an upside. I can't see them being the cheapest on the market, and I also can't imagine there being many sales as Robot Cache's cut is fairly small by comparison.

@TinyKaiju I have to agree that's what it sounds like. You'll let Robot Cache use your machine to mine Bitcoin and Etherium, etc (y'know the ones with real-world value) whilst you are rewarded with what will eventually be a small discount on games on Robot Cache (and their respective DRM platform).

I thought there were whispers of a new Fable *possibly* in the works, but this is big news with all the teasing Playground have been doing on their new project!

@Unessential ah yes, you are right. I didnít really get into it, hence wiping it from my memory.

I know Kalypso gave it (half) a try with Dungeons and Dungeons 2, but similarly it didnít sit right.

Something along the lines of the simplicity of the original (or 2) with upgraded visuals works perfectly for me!

Please be good, the updated graphics look like they will do wonders for it.

And once this is out of the door and we all buy it and make you millions, please do Dungeon Keeper next.

My absolutely favourite game of all time, I still play it from time-to-time through GOG.

Great tracks, been playing a lot of the supercross user-tracks.

Some are great but others...well, not so much!
