Cuphead sells over one million units

Cuphead sells over one million units”

It's only been two weeks since Studio MDHR released its critically-acclaimed run and gun shooter Cuphead, but the retro-looking indie title has already been a remarkable success among the gaming community.

Unfortunately we don't know the split between Xbox One and PC, however according to Steam Spy there are roughly 602,342 (give or take) owners of Cuphead on Steam alone. With its unique 1930s inspired art style and relentlessly hard action, Cuphead easily stands out from the rest of modern games.

Developer StudioMDHR announced today its colorful boss-focused action game has gone platinum, selling one million copies since it was released on September 29.

It's always possible that unbelievable indie games like this might get lost in the shuffle no matter how much critical praise is heaped on them. MDHR co-founders Chad and Jared Moldenhauer quit their jobs and remortgaged their houses to help get the game finished, an extreme measure that has no guarantee of paying off the way it has here.

Cuphead isn't just wildly, rabidly hard, it's also somewhat of a sales phenomenon.

While the quick pace at which Cuphead reached 1 million sold is noteworthy in itself, it's especially impressive considering the game only launched on Xbox One and PC.
