Zeboyd Games' Cthulu bundle hits 100,000 sales in four months
Back in July we wrote about indie developer Zeboyd Games’ rampant success on Steam compared to its previous platform, the tumultous Xbox Live Indie Games channel. To recap: Cthulu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII did fairly well by XBLIG standards, netting the developers around $50,000, but when Zeboyd ported the titles to Steam and released them as a $3 bundle, sales skyrocketed, generating over a year and a half of the games’ console revenue in just one weekend.
Now, four months later, thanks in part to the recent Steam Halloween sale, the bundle has managed to sell a cool 100,000 units, ensuring the survival of the two-man indie outfit.
“We are ecstatic at the amount of success we’ve seen since releasing our games on the PC,” reads a statement on the Zeboyd Games website. “The days of worrying over whether or not we could support our families while making games we would want to play ourselves are behind us. Counter-intuitive though it may be, there is obviously a definite audience for quality console-style RPGs that are aggressively priced on the PC.”
The duo are currently hard at work a new title with Penny Arcade named Rainslick Precipice of Darkness Episode 3. The Cthulu bundle is also on sale right now through Steam for a ridiculous $1, so you have no excuse not to buy it.
