So, that one buyer that doesn’t like pixelated graphics, 11% of him won’t reskin. Good to know, I’ll keep that in mind.

There are items of extremely high quality, not mine, but other authors, that earned zero, so I strongly disagree with you.

I’ve been here more than a year, got the badge to prove it, and I only had 9 sales so far, made ~90 bucks, so what you’re saying sounds like a fairy tale which you repeat every time.

That’s a custom game buyer provided specs for, and the price has been agreed upon, so the price is known and guaranteed. Same game would probably earn zero here or 1-3 sales at best as a stock item. It’s a different kind of market, exclusive one, that’s why the income is 100+ times larger. Envato market brings risk into play because nothing is guaranteed, not a single sale. And people on your market expect low prices, so putting the price that would reflect the work involved to make a $1500 game would only repel them.
This already happened to me on your market. I exclusively released the game that took me an effort to make, a $250 effort. I’ve put the price of $59, months were passing by, no sales, it was an exclusive item, like all of my items here. Eventually, a customer of mine asked me to make a game, it appeared very similar to what I already released on your market, excluding a few features. I showed him the demo, he accepted it, I deleted item from your market and sold him for $450. That’s the amount of money that item would not have made on your market in 30 years or ever since there were no sales for months.
