Supergiant Games' action RPG Bastion had a very good year. The San Jose-based developer announced that their action RPG sold over half a million copies since its debut on Xbox Live Arcade in July.
"Recent holiday sales on Steam and Xbox LIVE Arcade put us over the top. We’re happy to have this many people playing and to be in a position to make more games on our own terms," reads a note on Supergiant's website. "When we set out to make Bastion, a sales number like that seemed astronomical to us, so it feels great to have hit that mark. It goes to show that a lot of folks out there like what we’re doing and want us to keep going, which is great, because we intend to stick together as a team and do just that."
"What’s more, we’re honored to see Bastion getting plenty of attention in various Game of the Year awards lists across all kinds of different publications including some big old mainstream ones. We wanted to make a memorable game so it’s great to see this level of recognition."
Bastion has racked up dozens of awards since release. At the Spike VGAs, it was crowned Best Downloadable Game. It also received honors at that show for Best Original Score and Best Song.
You can buy Bastion through Steam, Xbox Live Arcade, or the Google Chrome Web Store.
