In the past year on Steam, a few subtle games have exploded in popularity. The most iconic of these was Among Us, which suddenly gained incredible popularity for everyone after two years of existence thanks to streamers. It looks like a similar situation can happen with Bloons TD 6 .
Bloons TD 6 is a tower-defense strategy game that was released on December 18, 2018. The game never got much attention. At the start, less than 1000 people played it, by the end of 2019 the numbers had grown to 10 thousand, but then they fell again and began to grow sharply since the end of last year.
On January 4, the game set a record of 43,840 players, and now it is played by almost 22 thousand people. This might sound like a weak record, but the game has overtaken Hades in record number of players, and now it is in 25th place, above Phasmophobia, Left 4 Dead 2 and many other games.
The increase in interest in the game is directly related to the number of viewers on Twitch, which are depicted in red in the graph above.
Bloons TD 6 is available on PC, Android and iOS.
