The Laptop Gaming studio surprised in 2020 by launching its first title on Steam, offering it for more than $500,000 USD and making it the most expensive game on the Valve platform. Over time, the title was on sale, but now all users can save a huge amount of money and get it for free.
The game in question is MEGAJUMP, a peculiar platformer that was initially offered for $502,634 USD. Its developers decided to drastically reduce the price and now it will be free forever. Laptop Gaming explained that this decision has a curious and simple explanation.

Steam’s most expensive game is now free for everyone
The MEGAJUMP developers explained that they wanted to test Steam’s price cap when they released their title. Thanks to an exploit, they were able to initially offer it at $502,634 USD, an absurdly high price.
The cost stayed that way for at least 1 month, as Valve’s policies allow a price adjustment only 30 days after setting one. Even Laptop Gaming warned about what happened and asked players not to purchase the game until they could adjust its price.
“They won’t let me change the price for 30 days. Don’t buy it for $500,000 USD, just wanted to test the price limits on Steam,” the studio wrote in a warning posted on the game’s page since its release.
As time went by, the cost of MEGAJUMP adjusted and it was even on sale several times. The title with very positive reviews challenges you to climb through several levels full of platforms, so the precision of your movements will be very important.
To get it for free, you just have to go to its Steam page and click the “Play” button to add it to your collection.
