tl;dr; a

Climbing to the top was stupid hard (and a complete fluke). Rank is pretty much dictated by number of downloads. ADR has no price elasticity. Having an inside contact at Apple is nice, but that still is a lot of work (with cranking out non trivial updates). I need another sabbatical T_T.

Aside: Created a new website for my games, check it out.

Here are two years worth of downloads (World Wide and US) plus rank positions for RPG’s, Games, and Overall.

Zero under the rank columns means “not ranked”.
