Creepy Jar breaks more records

Green Hell sales on consoles better than expectations

Creepy Jar has scored its second-ever record-breaking sales period for its iconic game Green Hell, according to preliminary financial results for the first half of 2021 released by the developer. The company’s net profit at the end of June rose to PLN 11.5 million. Creepy Jar has already sold over 200,000 copies of Green Hell on PlayStation and Microsoft Xbox consoles.

With sales revenues of PLN 21 million, Creepy Jar earned a net profit of PLN 11.5 million in the first half of this year. Operating profit at the end of the half-year increased to PLN 13.2 million. Cash on hand increased to PLN 38.1m from PLN 27.98m at December 31, 2020.

The company’s financial results are a result of continued strong sales of Green Hell on the STEAM platform and the game’s better-than-expected debut on Sony PlayStation and Microsoft Xbox consoles. – Green Hell has been on the market for 3 years now, and yet it still holds unflagging interest and breaks new sales records. Thanks to two Spirits of Amazonia expansion packs we’ve been able to successfully sustain interest in the game and keep high sales on STEAM – emphasizes Krzysztof Kwiatek, CEO of Creepy Jar.

For the first six months of 2021, total gross sales of Green Hell on STEAM, Sony PlayStation and Microsoft Xbox platforms were 638,000 copies, with 116,000 copies on PlayStation and Xbox consoles. – This made us record our second best quarter ever. It took very little to break the record of the previous period, which included the release of Co-Op mode. The first sales data from consoles make us hope that also on these platforms Green Hell will be a longseller – announces Krzysztof Kwiatek. This can be confirmed by the preliminary sales data available as of the report publication date. Green Hell’s gross sales for all three aforementioned platforms as of early 2021 are estimated at 832,000 copies, with 209,000 copies on PlayStation and Xbox consoles.

– Although operating and net profitability are lower than in the first half of last year, it should be noted that in that period the company had not yet recognized costs related to the incentive program in its results. If current data were adjusted for this item, profitability would be similar to that achieved after 6 months of last year. This confirms that despite the increase of the team and pressure on wages we manage to maintain appropriate cost discipline – adds CEO Kwiatek.
