The game was not developed to be a big-time money maker, according to Bethesda's Todd Howard, but that's exactly what it's become. The game, the first-ever mobile title based on Fallout, made $5.1 million in its first two weeks from the sale of virtual lunchboxes, according to a research firm.
You can buy a single lunchbox for 99 cents or pay as much as $20 for a set of 40.
"It just shows that fans are smart; and if you give them something they think is fun, they probably reward the people who made it," Howard said back in June about the mobile game's early success.
