In the first half of 2023, Creepy Jar S.A. generated PLN 19.9 million in sales revenues and PLN 12.8 million in net profit. The company focuses on the production of its second original game, Chimera, and further support for the flagship title, Green Hell.
Gross sales of Green Hell in the first quarter of 2023 on PC/Steam, PlayStation Store and Microsoft Store platforms (versions of the game for which the Company holds publishing rights) amounted to more than 527 thousand copies, with more than 136 thousand copies on PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
In the first half of 2023, the Company achieved net revenues from the sale of Green Hell in the amount of PLN 19.9 million. The decrease in revenues by 29% y/y is due to decreasing sales of the game on all platforms, in particular on consoles and virtual reality platforms. In the first half of 2023, the company generated an operating profit of PLN 11.2 million (a decrease by 41% y/y) and a net profit of PLN 12.8 million (a decrease by 31% y/y).
In June 2023, the company released the first marketing materials for Chimera (reveal teaser, key art, website and social media channels, as well as the product page on the Steam platform).
– In terms of production we are now completing a number of milestones, and each of them is aimed at taking specific functionalities to an advanced level. Recently we've been working on progression and exploration, so you can already get a good feel for the game. At this stage, StarRuprutreallows for several dozen hours of gameplay. When all milestones are achieved, we will bring the product to the quality corresponding to the Early Access version – says Krzysztof Kwiatek, CEO of Creepy Jar S.A.
The studio’s new title includes several basic mechanics: base building, exploration, advanced combat system and resource management on an alien planet plagued by disasters caused by the StarRupture. The game will be available in single player or co-op mode for up to four players.
Creepy Jar continues to support and develop Green Hell, its flagship production, the gross sales of which exceeded 4.5 million copies. In the first half of 2023, the Building Update expansion pack for PC/Steam was released. In April 2023, console players (PlayStation and Xbox) received Animal Husbandry, and now the studio is finalising work on the next expansion pack – Building Update.
