Independent game development studio Playdead today announced that its award-winning puzzle-platforming adventure, LIMBO, has now sold over one million copies worldwide – played by gamers in 153 countries in 9 languages across 3 platforms. This success has enabled Playdead to expand its independence by fully acquiring the company from early investors, laying the groundwork for the studio to begin developing and financing their next title.
Hot on the heels of this milestone, Playdead today also announced that a Mac version of LIMBO is in the works and will be released before the end of the year. Way to go Playdead, see there really is room for some independent studios to be successful. LIMBO was one of our favorite downloadable games of the year (so much we gave away a bunch of copies), if you haven’t played it you should check out our LIMBO review and see if we can’t convince you.
