    Completely deserved. Most of its games are really good.

    Since there has been 6 games it doesn’t sound that great but I guess the developer is happy with it.

    I think the industry wants gamers to overestimate the amount of sales a game needs, especially indie games (most of the whining ones live in SF which is an expensive city) and AAA games (because they project an unrealistic amount of profit to make their shareholders happy)

    Considering what this series is and its more limited appeal outside of Japan i’d say this is an accomplishment.

    It’s about ~160,000 sales per title, on average. That’s pretty good, especially for such a niche series that doesn’t get a huge amount of advertising.

    Those are some decent sales. I hope they are profitable and that Deep Crimson and Estival Versus sell well in the West.
