Sifu Has Sold Over One Million Copies in Under a Month
Developer Sloclap has knocked it out of the park with Sifu as, in under a month, the game has sold over one million copies. That is very good for a game of its size.
To celebrate this achievement, Sloclap has released some stats on the game. One such stat is that there has been over 10 million hours played.
Interestingly, but unsurprisingly, out of the one million people who have played Sifu, only 45% have managed to reach the third level. So far, only 150,000 have actually managed to beat Yang, the main antagonist of the game. Sifu has sold over a million copies, but it seems like some of those players are having some trouble.
Pierre Tarno, executive producer at Sloclap, had this to say on Sifu:
“We are thrilled by the reception of Sifu from both fans and press alike. We set out to create an authentic, Kung Fu action game that paid homage to our favorite Kung Fu films. We’re thankful for our fans around the world but we are especially humbled by the incredible reception the game has had in China. Our internal metric of success was how well the game was received there and knowing that fans in China are the largest segment of our sales outside of North America and the positive reviews from Chinese critics means a lot to us.”
It’s great to see a difficult, indie game inspired by kung fu do so well. I’m glad that Sifu has proved enough of a success to reach the one million copies sold in under a month.
