Sword and Sworcery by the Numbers

Entire time I am putting this post together I am thinking to myself, “Damn I wish I could use ampersands in titles and tags without breaking Dueling‘s RSS feed.” I know there’s a way to replace ampersands in the titles before the RSS function parses them, but I just never got around to writing it. Just bothers me as the name of the game is Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP and not Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP.

Nonetheless seeing as this infographic came from Capybara Games themselves, it’s probably one of the most accurate ones to ever appear on this site.

    You’re looking for & (along with friends < and >)

      But that still uses the ampersand symbol. I just need to do something like:

      str_replace(‘&’, ‘and’, $title);

      in the function file.

        Ampersands don’t work alone in XML because XML assumes they’re used for HTML entities, which is why &, >, and < all work fine. You just can’t have a stray ampersand; it has to be part of an entity.

    I may be off, but I have to say that it seems to speak well of Steam releases. If Steam accounted for only 7% of sales and managed to accrue them almost 20% of their revenue, there is a lot to say about that.

    Without potentially going into the idea of price gouging, haha. Of course the numbers could be skewed, we never know with these things.
