And Konami keeps making pachinko machine games...

Konami is a strange example where they could actually make a shit ton of money just from making slightly more polished indie-like experiences. Castlevania, Bomberman, and Contra can all be small 2D titles. They should really do something with their IP especially because they keep making crossovers and Netflix seasons.

I know these type of sales for a game on this budget are great, but considering its available on 4 platforms, it doesnt seem that high. But congrats to the devs. The Game is up there with Ori as a great Metroidvania gem.

Indie game made by 4 people with basically no marketing selling more than some AAA games.

"Sales don't seem high"
