What’s Behind the “Banana” Craze? Here’s Everything You Need to Know About the Game!

We have witnessed interesting games on Steam for years. Yes, some of them have been played by thousands or even hundreds of thousands of players, some have been removed from Steam on suspicion of fraud, some have failed to meet the expectations of the players, but none of them have been able to do what Banana did. How did Banana, whose number of active players is reaching a record every day, become so popular and why do players play this game where your only action is to click? We will answer all your questions in this content.

What does Banana offer players?

First, let’s summarize what the game offers in the strict sense of “game”. Banana is basically a game where there is a banana on the screen and you increase your score by clicking on this banana. This game, which does not have any other details or even a menu, can be prepared in a very short time by anyone with the slightest knowledge of coding in Unity or on different game engines. Banana also states that it does not offer anything more than that, and it is presented to the players completely free of charge, with all the details included in the Steam description. Here too, the most important question confronts us. Why are players so in demand for such a simple “game” ?

Why did banana become so popular?

What makes game popular is people’s desire to make money. There are currently two ways for users who want to make money on Steam. The first of these is that we all have entered at least once and said “I’m lucky bro, I can drop a good item in a match.” The one we are talking about is Counter-Strike 2. The other one is Idle Master, a card dropping program that is not legal for Steam but has been used by players for years. Now, while we are on this subject, let’s summarize the card logic for those who still do not know.

Steam’s community marketplace is a place to sell cards you’ve dropped in games that qualify for collectible card drops. These cards are the only things that you can combine to get a badge when you complete the required set and display this badge on your profile. Many players are looking to earn a little money on Steam by selling these cards as they drop, rather than crafting badges. The game also makes this point. Not only is the game free, but it does not have a collection card limit like other games, because as you play, you can drop different types of bananas completely through RNG logic – that is, randomly – just like in Counter-Strike 2.

There are many different types of bananas you drop, and according to the notes added by the producer to the items, these bananas are prepared by users on the official Discord server of the game. Of course, which one is valuable and which one is worthless is determined by Steam users using the community market, and this is where the supply and demand logic we all know comes into play. So, to summarize briefly, what makes Banana popular is the perception of being able to make money by selling the bananas you drop in the community market.

Is it really possible to make money with?

Many players have managed to earn hundreds of dollars, especially in recent weeks, by playing Banana and dropping bananas. For example, according to the developers, some bananas are very, very rare, and those who dropped them have sold each banana for around $1,000 so far. But this does not mean that you can consistently earn these numbers. The constant exponential increase in the number of players naturally increases the number of bananas that fall. In addition, the value of bananas is decreasing day by day as everyone tries to sell them, and now, minus the Steam commission, the money an ordinary banana will earn you is $0.01 . Of course, in order to achieve this, you first have to wait for your product to rise to the top in sales because there are hundreds of thousands of users waiting for their banana to be sold.

The developers also admit that the number of active players in the game currently exceeds 700,000, half of which consists of bots. Let us underline that this is a serious problem. This game uses less than 1% of your computer’s resources and people are creating thousands of fake accounts to run this game in the hopes of obtaining and selling rare bananas that are rapidly increasing in value. In fact, bots and auto-clickers for the game have become the most talked about topics in the forums. What makes this a serious problem is Steam, the platform on which the game is published. Because in their interview with Polygon, the developers underlined that Valve may take action on this issue soon and that there is even a possibility that the game will be removed completely.

What should I do to make money with Banana?

We have conveyed literally all the details about the game. I still say , “I’m lucky, I’ll be the one to drop that rare banana.” If you are wondering, let’s briefly summarize what you should do.

Currently, we do not recommend leaving your computer on for days, as the earnings have actually decreased and it has become very difficult to drop rare bananas, but you can leave the game open in the background while you spend time on your computer. Likewise, Steam allows you to enter another game while it is open, so you do not have to worry about the possibility of game closing when you enter a new game. Also, you do not have to constantly click on the game to drop the banana, just open the game and leave it open.

This is all we have for now about all the details about the game and how you can join this caravan if you wish. We say for now because it is not clear how long or whether the game craze will last, but if the increase in the number of players and bot accounts continues at this rate, Valve will not be late to make a move.
