So... are there any indications of how Yooka-Laylee performed so far? Read something about 40.000 copies of Steam on 4Chan, but there's no real evidence either.

Strangely enough though, the ratings on these platforms (Steam, Amazon) are way better than the Metacritic score... but that's another topic.

I'm actually interested as well. I guess it's because I'm a backer.

You can use Steamspy, that's were 4chan got the data from. Thing is, backers are among these figures. "Owners"

By all accounts steam spy is fairly accurate, so I would trust that. Steam is typically the most popular platform for a game as well, with PS4 being around 25-50% of what steam sales are, and xbox being around 15-30% of what steam is. I would estimate yooka laylee has a total of 60-70K units sold, not including the switch version which isnt out yet.

It's really hard to make estimates when you consider all the backers, which are arguably the biggest fanbase. They need to sell tens of thousands to make a big enough profit to independently finance another game without the help of another Kickstarter.
