Inscryption, the deck-building roguelike from developer Daniel Mullins Games and publisher Devolver Digital, has hit another impressive sales milestone. The indie game, which only launched in October last year, has now passed the magic milestone of one million offbeat copies.
“The Ermine wants you to know that Inscryption has surpassed one million copies sold,” Devolver announces on Twitterthanking the fans — well, “all you brave squirrels,” as the publisher puts it — and the game’s developer. Considering the game only launched on October 19, 2021, that means it hit the one million mark in less than three months – an impressive feat for an independent.
For context, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice – which was billed as a kind of “triple-A indie” – sold 500,000 copies in about four months and hit 1 million in June after its August 2017 release. It Takes Two, The Game Awards’ GOTY of 2021 winner, meanwhile hit a mouthwatering million sales around a month after launch – so it looks like Inscryption landed somewhere in the middle of that in its performance. sales so far, which is pretty darn impressive.
