Infuriatingly good Xbox Live Arcade game Trials HD has racked up an impressive 2 million lifestyle sales.
That includes sales of Trials HD, as well as the Big Pack and Big Thrills DLC expansions, developer RedLynx has announced, making the game one of the best seeling XBLA games in history. Good work, chaps!
“It’s been a little more than a year and a half since Trials HD was released,”said RedLynx CEO Tero Virtal. “For a digitally downloaded game, this is a significant milestone, and shows one of the many ways the digital space is quickly growing and the industry itself is changing and evolving.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the success, and we’d like to thank all our fans for their continuous support and enthusiasm for our game.”
So what of the future of the studio? Creative director Antti Ilvessuo had this say: “Whatever the future holds remains to be seen, but currently we have six teams working on six games, so I can guarantee there are other great RedLynx games in the works.
“Other than that, I must remain silent. It is the Finnish way. That, and sitting in a stiflingly hot sauna during midsummer without saying a word. That is the Finnish way.”
Let's hope they don't spend too much time in the sauna. Six games is a hell of a lot for a relatively small studio to be juggling at once.
