Too Long; Didn't Read

The gaming industry is huge - it was valued at $151.9 billion in revenue in 2019. The only people making money in the gaming industry are the large gaming companies and the platforms that distribute the games. Steam doesn’t offer any advertisement tools to promote your game. The average cost of living in the USA is $20,194 per person per year according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Even for bigger teams, development can take as long as 7 years, as is the case of S.T.A.L.K.R.
