im cant give precision numbers, but its around 1000$ for the 3 days opening. So Steam is a good platform when got lucky. Howover publisher etc does take 30% of the cage, im happy to pay that.

On the one hand such publisher gives you good starting promotion, on other takes some $$, and gives confidence that your game will be bundled in some time (still even then you will make some money from bundles). But for finished game I think that it is was worth. Beside that look forward for next Steam Sale event as with those 'suggested games queue' such good-rated indie games get free promotion and some additional audience.
You should also consider checking Windows Store as there is some tool to convert win32 apps for that UWP, but didn't try it, and that could also generate some revenue.
Check my source code editor for GLBasic - link

It's the best sale on ever platform I'm did have. Steam have been good for sale for me, even with its issues.

Now's probably a very good time to get GLBasic on Steam; BlitzMax has just been Greenlit - http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=523449470

I came. I saw. I played.
