Steam charts are a truly intricate look into what gamers are actually playing. Mainline charts will bolster the AAA giants with Hogwarts Legacy and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe still selling like hotcakes, but that's not entirely indicative of what players are interested in right now - and Steam steps in to give us the truth.

Steam tells us without filter which porn games and rip-offs PC players are actually indulging in. We could've guessed, but it turns out that rip-offs homaging your favourite games are all the rage right now. So, imagine if someone merged Roblox with Battlefield.

Who'd have thought games featuring blocky characters would be so popular? Right now the Steam charts are under the iron-fisted rule of BattleBit Remastered, a game you've likely never heard of. That's the magic of the Steam charts.

The game is a Roblox-esque spin on the Battlefield series' hopes to have gigantic 254-player games, but is actually able to pull it off. Despite its ambition, BattleBit Remastered comes in at only $15, meaning it's riding the charts.

BattleBit Remastered sits ahead of CS:GO thanks to Steam managing games on the charts buy revenue instead of rather than copies sold. At the time of writing, BattleBit Remastered is is top-selling game on the platform. 

The shooter is also in the top ten of games that are most played right now, and it's thanks to the infectious gameplay that it's able to perform so well. It borrows a lot of features from its inspiration, featuring proximity chat, vehicles, destructible environments and more.

BattleBit Remastered is made by only 4 people

Perhaps the most surprising part of all of this (besides the fact that a game of this size can actually run), is that the game currently crushing it on Steam was only made by four people.

The four-man team that makes up OkiGames have been working on BattleBit Remastered, in multiple different forms, for around seven years now. Given how surprisingly well the game runs on even archaic PCs, they've clearly been working hard. Steam getting dominated by indies is a particularly sweet win.
