As part of a monthly feature, Valve has revealed the best-selling games on Steam from January this year. One trend that was very noticeable was that 12 of the top 20 games were Early Access titles, an unprecedented number for the digital distribution platform since it launched the feature eight years ago.

“Just as exciting is the fact that the success of these products in January demonstrates just how comfortable and excited players are to experience games using Early Access,” Valve said in a statement. New development teams also landed in the top 20, as studios Live Wire, Nussygame, and others all released products on Steam for the first time.
