Trauma was Most Bought Ubuntu App in December

Trauma was top selling game in Ubuntu

Adventure game ‘Trauma‘ topped the list of Ubuntu’s top selling paid apps in December.

Last month’s top selling Software Centre item – the critically acclaimed puzzle game Braid - drops two places to 3.

The top 10 chart is largely dominated by gaming titles. Unigine’s RTS Oil Rush makes 4th place; Steel Storm: Burning Retribution captures 5th place, and world famous puzzler World of Goo sticks itself to 7th.

The recently-released puzzle game Memory Owl snags itself 10th place following our review of it back in early December.
