Curious on the breakdown
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.
Good sales for a game of it's size.
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"
Fair point. I wasnt too sure how much budget or marketing the game had. Its impressive.
