5 Biggest Breakout Hits Of 2017
5. Getting Over It With Bennett Foddy
This has to be one of the oddest games ever released, ever. Getting Over It With Bennett Foddy is an exercise in frustration that also seems to be a simulator for testing your patience. The platformer came out of nowhere and ended up becoming a huge hit with streamers and YouTubers who played the game for their audiences, revealing a completely insane game where you take a man in a pot who must ascend impossibly difficult obstacles using a sledgehammer. The game has already gone on to sell more than 300,000 copies in two weeks, according to Steam Spy. No advertising campaign, no big marketing budget, and nothing but word of mouth helped the game sell like crazy as an end-of-the-year surprise breakout hit.
