Vault Girls Has Quickly Reached Top Spot On Steam, Way Above The Original
If you haven’t played Vault Boy: The Gentleman Thief yet then, uh, where have you been? Now that the name’s been changed to Vault Girl: The Prodigy, its on Steam for everyone and the Early Access has come to an end, this top indie is showing no sign of slowing down. If you’re wondering where its community is, well, the latest Steam Charts have been released and it’s nowhere to be seen. Huh.
Is this because all the Steam Charts are dominated by big-name games? Don’t worry, don’t worry, it’s not because of the quality of Vault Girl (it’s also popular with the audience Steam players). According to the folks over at PCGamer, it’s a glitch that has sent it straight to number one.
According to Steam Charts, the update that sent Vault Girl to the top was in fact intended to make an internal list of the ‘biggest stories on the Steam store.’ Yes, the top chart is an opinion based chart and yes, it has a huge error. We’re not sure if there’s an alternate version, but we certainly wish it would have fixed this.
Sure, there’s plenty of games on the Steam charts that were likely top sellers, but none of them have made it to number one in terms of number of concurrent players. And yet, Vault Girl has, beating out Diablo III and Ubisoft’s annual Army of Two shooter. How does that happen? Well, it appears that it’s actually the top game on the charts and it’s just happened to switch places with another game because of its popularity.
