    Breath of Death VII Soars in Sales

    Robert Boyd has recently shared his success story about Breath of Death VII. Did you play it? Did you love it? Well, here's some info that will make you go "le brains!," if you were cheering in the corner for this little indie developer that could.

    Story.

    I don't have wireless atm for my 360 so I've barely played it since it's a pain to get my system online.

    Good to hear it sold well though.

    Here's one more vote for wanting it on PS3.

    Played it, beat it, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Looking forward to Cthulu on day one. I have no doubt sales for Cthulu will match or more likely surpass BoD7. They know what they're doing and are building a strong fanbase.

    I'd gladly pay $2-$5 to get it as a mini so I can on my PSP. It would be perfect on a handheld.

    It's highly unlikely that Breath of Death VII will ever be on the PS3 or PSP. Even assuming we decided to expand to the PSN in the distant future, by that point, Breath of Death VII would be old news and not worth porting.

    However, we are planning on expanding to the PC and I can't imagine the system requirements will be very high, so you could play it that way if you don't own a 360.

    Just as a follow-up report, the post-mortem I did on Breath of Death VII has had a big effect on sales in the past few days. Last week, we were selling an average of 60 copies a day. This week, on Tuesday, we sold 363 copies and on Wednesday, we sold 489. This is quite the pleasant surprise. I wrote the post-mortem for my own amusement and to help out other developers; I wasn't expecting it to get mainstream media attention or have any real effect on our sales.

    I am extremely psyched for you guys!

    You are soon to be releasing another similarly sytled RPG, do you guys plan on mixing up the formula for future games?

    Yeah, we're planning on mixing things up in the future, but I thought for our second game that an evolutionary rather than revolutionary approach would be best. To be honest, I don't even know if our next game will even be an RPG - among other things, I have an idea for a turn-based strategy game that I think could turn into something quite awesome with a bit of finetuning.

    I'll buy it once it comes to either PC or PS3

    if it comes to PC it'd be great if it could end up on Steam or Impulse >_>
