Updates on the development of coding puzzler Robo Instructus

Robo Instructus: 2 Years Old

I'm a game developer. I made robot engineering puzzle game Robo Instructus. For my previous posts look here.

Today Robo Instructus is 2 years old. Let’s take a look at how it did in the last 12 months.

To celebrate 2 years Robo Instructus is 50% off on Steam & for the next 7 days.

The game has received 9 updates over the year, the latest 1.31.4. Most notably the game completed a full German translation thanks to community contribution (all translations are done in the open so anyone can help improve them on github). The updates also brought QoL improvements like auto-scrolling to code errors/while debugging, along with bug fixes and code maintenance.

Sales by platform   In the last year
Steam 3366 822 34 7

The vast majority of sales continue to be on Steam.

Last year Steam sales by region  
United States 23%
Russian Federation 21%
Germany 9%
France 5%
United Kingdom 5%
China 4%
Brazil 3%
Poland 2%
Canada 2%
Japan 2%
Other 24%

Last year Steam sales by OS  
Windows* 88.3%
Linux 9.0%
Mac 2.7%

* Steam doesn’t actually count Windows explicitly, so this tally is the sales that are not counted as Linux or Mac.


On Steam the game is currently rated Positive with 84% of 45 user reviews, a similar place to last year.


Looking at a couple of choice Steam achievements, The Gist which you get for completing the 4th level (ie you’ve actually had a go at the game) is 63.6%, up from 60.9 last year. Open The Vault which you get for completing the game is at 0.8%, up from 0.7. So more people have played, and a few have even managed to complete, the game this year. Good job!

You can play the Robo Instructus demo and buy the game on Steam &
