We’ve been addicted to Marvel’s Midnight Suns for the last month. The game provides a combination of strategic superhero action and social drama featuring everyone’s favorite heroes, with an impeccable design pedigree from XCOM developer Firaxis Games. We gave it a rave review, and hoped it’d usher in a new series of Marvel-themed turn-based battlers.
Sadly, it doesn’t seem to have found an audience. In fact, a peek at SteamDB indicates that it might be something of a flop. Its all-time peak player count is 15,500, which is small potatoes compared to Firaxis’ own titles XCOM: Chimera Squad (35,000) and XCOM2 (135,000).
