      Honestly I'm confused as well, seems like other FOTM games got ~500k. Is it able to run on low specs or something due to UE?

          I'm not up to date on how average specs are then, I thought the crypto craze a few years back ate up GPUs and wienerblocked people wanting to get into PC gaming. Was that overblown/did the market bounce back and make PC gaming more popular?

      I thought asset flip means a low-quality game, where vast majority of assets, and even code, were bought from an asset store.

    Pokemon is the biggest entertainment franchise in the world and its main line of games are dogshit. An entire generation grew up on the Game Boy games and have been collectively chomping at the bit for someone to do something DIFFERENT for decades.

    And now someone finally went and made a monster-collecting game that had the audacity to do something DIFFERENT instead of coddling a nonexistent pre-adolescent playerbase or rehashing turn-based JRPG mechanics that were dated in 1999, leaving not only Pokemon but also
    Dragon Quest Monsters
    Monster Rancher
    Digimon
    SMT
    and Monster Hunter Stories in the fricking DUST. Palworld had the nerve to discard stale genre conventions like themes of friendship, harmony with nature, and a non-combatant protagonist, instead employing direct violence, exploitation and industrialization which are far more appealing to an increasingly cynical audience. Whether you read it as satire or take it at face value, it's fresh as frick. No one wants this preachy-ass Ghibli movie shit anymore.

    It also happens to be bolted onto a survival crafting game which has been a solid top 3 most popular genre for 16 years, on top of being relatively polished and having a satisfying gameplay loop.

    You want to know the real reason?
    >It's a more than okay game
    >It has a sense of familiarity/nostalgia (collectible pets/pokemon)
    >It has a new twist (guns and brutality)
    >that bias I don't know the name of which makes people favor the underdog (in this case, an indie game trying to make something that a big company did)
    >It's multiplayer (almost everything is better with friends)
    Those who actually play games have been looking for a new game for months now and jumped on the first "not horrible" game they saw. For which Palworld perfectly qualifies.
    This isn't a new phenomenon. Elden Ring also got this insane normalgay popularity because it was the only okay-to-good game to come out in MONTHS.

    The overlap between pokemon fans and survival game fans must be so high that their moronation combined creates a megacluster of consumption.
