Nice! Honestly, this was a fairly low-budget game so 2.5 million is IMO amazing.

Don't sleep on it. I've put around 120 hours into this game. One of the best turn based RPG's of the last decade.

I thought this title had a higher profile, I love the art style. They must be disappointed with the sales

I doubt they expected it to post BotW-level numbers. It's selling on par with games like Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Xenoblade Chronicles. It did fine.

For a new IP of this sort and the production value (AA), it can not have been a dissapointment.
