Yeah, because it's a high-quality gem.*inside joke, you'll only get it if you've played it*

Those numbers are impressive?

wonderfulmonkeyman1173d ago

Would you like others to use that same train of thought on titles you find impressive, that didn't sell well above 1M?
No?
Then don't try it on others.

Can't ask a legitimate question without people getting all defensive.

It's an indie title available only on digital content. So yes, it is, considering this game probably made them millionaires since it was all profit. Research.

Dunban671172d ago

It has been successful so far- but in no way did it make them millionaires and revenue is not close to being all profit-
if u look in the comments section under the original story there is a link to Yatch Club games website that has a great overview of thier dec process and basic breakdown re cost Etc. I hope they become millionaires since they seem like dedicated great guys- But they still have a ways to go - more power to them

They risked a lot and will continue to have to take risks for the foreseeable future but they are off to a great start

Yacht Club Games mentioned that they were happy with sales. The game sold 180K units in its first month, 107K in Nintendo platforms, the rest on PC...

Yes, those numbers are impressive, at least for the developers. Don't know how other indie games perform, but there you go.

A freshman indie studio selling 5 times the games development cost, in one month, on two platforms, in one region?

Wholly unimpressive.

for an indie title with zero marketing, I would say so, sure.
