Note that the 450k download number is of the free version of the game, Trainyard Express.

There is also an impressive sales graph for the paid version at the end of the post, suggesting that the game has been rather lucrative since the beginning of October: http://struct.ca/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/TheWholeShebang....

Note also that 450k download number for the free version is now > 1 million!

From its App Store description: Downloaded over a million times, woah!

[Edit: make that 2 million now http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=1810010]

The little bump at oct 2 is $240, so it looks like each major horiz line is 2k/day. It seems the day he posted this, it made just north of 9k/day.

Looks more like $1k per horizon line to me, but $4.5k/day is impressive nonetheless!

Hey this is Matt, without actually saying the total value, I'll just tell you that the horizon lines are $1.2k ;)

So that's a peak of about $4.7k.

No, i think peak value is 1.2k * 4.5 ~= $5.4k

Whoops, you're right. I'm guessing $5.6.
