Indie Platformer Gris Hits An Incredible Sales Milestone

Here’s some good news for fans of artful indie platformers–one of the best of the last few years, Gris, has done extremely well for itself. Developer Nomada Studios has revealed that the game, available now on Switch, PC, mobile, and PS4, has sold an incredible 1 million copies.

The studio announced this achievement on Twitter, thanking everyone on the team, their families, and publisher Devolver Digital for helping Gris achieve this success. A new piece of artwork was included to commerate the milestone.

The game launched for Switch and PC in December 2018, before hitting iOS in August 2019 and PlayStation 4 in November. It earned rave reviews at launch, including GameSpot’s own 9/10 review.

Gris is a puzzle platformer that deals with themes of grief, loneliness, and pushing on through dark times. It’s also absolutely gorgeous, thanks to its painterly art style.

The game is currently discounted by 50% on Steam as part of Devolver’s weekend sale, but hurry–the sale ends April 20. It’s also available as part of Xbox Game Pass for PC.
