I picked it up this week as there was a buy 2 get 1 free sale. The game seems excellent, but I suck at it and can't beat the second boss, ha.

This is inaccurate. The developer confirmed 1million sold after just 16 or so days from release.

When you read "sold" from a publisher, it usually means shipped. When you read "sold through", it means sold to customer.
