Noogy just tweeted that Dust has sold a million copies.

I know the game has some fans here so I thought I would make a thread. Congrats to him and the game for reaching the milestone!

Considering the creator made the game by him/herself did it recoup the money he/she spent on it? I would assume the one million milestone probably already did collect the money, but you never know with humble bundle and steam sales.

its an okay game. the story and characters were largely forgettable, but i found the combat and diverse environments to be fun and interesting. side quests were boring, though. wouldnt mind a sequel, i guess.

Happy for him, but it's a shame great games have to be down to $1-ish levels and be cheaper than a Redbull to move units. Some money is better than no money, of course, but it'd be cool to see. Symphony of the Night would be on the bottom of the food chain getting lapped a thousand times over by Flappy Bird in today's world. You'd also have to convince people why it's worth their time, and have to debate the effeminate male lead stigma around Alucard.

It still sold 500k+ before Humble. Not bad.

It got pretty cheap on Steam a couple times before that, too. Anyone know what it sold on XBLA before Steam?

It was pretty fun. The knockback when hit paired with some platforming segments was frustrating as hell though and not fun.
