Studio MDHR has announced that their debut hit game Cuphead has been bought over two million times.
In a post on the developer’s website, it was revealed that the PC and Xbox versions of the game came together to go “double platinum.” Those are big numbers for a small indie game of this size, especially one that has console exclusivity. The game’s look and challenge seem to have ensnared an audience, and it’s not hard to see why. It really is great.
In the post, the developer thanked the fans, saying:
“Hello friends! Much to our shock and amazement, we can announce that Cuphead has now sold over 2 million copies across all platforms. Even in our wildest dreams, we never thought our crazy little characters would be embraced by this many fans from around the world and we are continuously humbled by your support.
So to everyone who has drawn fan art, composed memes, performed songs, conquered challenge runs, streamed their playthrough, or just played Cuphead and had a good time, we love and appreciate all of you from the bottom of our hearts.”
It’s heartwarming to see good games do so well, especially a real passion project like this. Here’s hoping Studio MDHR’s next game captures the imagination in the same way.
