Elbert Perez, the Occasional Gamer, has just posted that the cumulative download total for all his games have just hit 1 million games in total.
Elbert has 17 games in marketplace in total, with the best performing being Armored Drive, which hit close to 225,000 downloads, and the worse Quadra Pro, a for pay version of Quadra, which had 100,000 downloads. Quadro Pro only achieved 6 downloads.
Elbert has recently posted about his experience of becoming self-employed, supporting himself only by writing Windows Phone 7 games, and he notes today:
A little more than a year ago I was very unsure how Windows phone would go especially with iPhone and Android had a unshakable grip on the market. I had little idea how much 1 year can do to someone who bets big on a new kid on the block. But looks like my bet is starting to payoff and the odds are getting better everyday.
Congratulations to Elbert, and hopefully many more developers will follow him soon.
