PSM Development: Shovel Shuffle Regional Downloads Breakdown

So I was going through the sales figures for Shovel Shuffle, which includes the number of downloads since it's free to play and I made another chart. It shows downloads per region as a percentage, where all regions combined make 100% and a region relates to where in the world the game is available.
I've compared it to each region's population and it looks fairly consistent. The only exception being GB, FR and ES regions having higher than normal download rates for their population. This could just be down to noise, or perhaps western Europeans are just more into games than the rest of the world.

As of June 2014 Shovel Shuffle is also available in Austria, India and Switzerland. I haven't include these in the chart since it would skew the results. Unfortunately players in those regions were never able to taste success on the scoreboards because they were patched out in the same month.
