Bastion reaches 500,000 sales

Supergiant Games’ Bastion has adventured its way past the half a million sold mark, the studio’s announced on its official site,  saying the milestone was reached thanks to recent holiday sales boosts on  Xbox Live Arcade and Steam.

“When we set out to make Bastion, a sales number like that seemed astronomical to us, so it feels great to have hit that mark,” the post also reads. “It goes to show that a lot of folks out there like what we’re doing and want us to keep going, which is great, because we intend to stick together as a team and do just that.”

The cashflow puts the developer “in a position to make more games on our own terms,” they say.
