Stumble Guys was downloaded more than Roblox and Candy Crush Saga in 2022 – and now it has passed $80m in lifetime revenue and 270m all-time downloads.
According to Appmagic data, Stumble Guys’ lifetime earnings and downloads now total over $81m and 273m respectively.
Small Finnish studio Kitka Games first released Stumble Guys in September 2020, and by November that year the game was getting over 2m downloads per month. It really started gathering momentum in December 2021, however, when it passed 5m monthly downloads for the first time.
Throughout 2022, it just kept on rising. It hit 10m monthly downloads in April 2022 before rocketing up the charts to its peak in July 2022, when it hit almost 37m monthly downloads.
It has calmed down on the downloads front somewhat in recent months, posting monthly installs of 10.8m in November and 11.8m in December.
Monthly revenue was pretty flat during its first year on the market, but started to take off at the end of 2021. Stumble Guys first broke $1m in monthly earnings in February 2022, passed $10m in July, then peaked in August with $12.6m. Since October it has declined quite drastically, posting monthly earnings of $7.75m in November and $6.4m in December.
It has not been hitting the heights it did last summer during its first few months under Scopely’s ownership, then. It has, however, been updated plenty recently with Christmas content, a Hot Wheels brand crossover and new Egypt-themed levels and cosmetics.
The fee Scopely paid for Stumble Guys was not disclosed when the deal was announced in September 2022. Stumble Guys is still listed under Kitka Games’ account on both iOS and Android, and is also available on Steam.
Kitka is a small studio based in Kajaani, Finland. Its CEO Olli Lahtinen is the former boss at Immobile Games, which made Fingersoft-published title Boom Karts, released in June 2021. Kitka Games’ CFO Teemu Määttä is the former COO and CFO of Critical Force, maker of PvP FPS Critical Ops.
As we first revealed last week, Appmagic data suggests that Stumble Guys was the third most-downloaded mobile game of 2022, ahead of Roblox and Candy Crush Saga.
