Darkest Dungeon, the crowdfunding success, has sold one million copies. In a recent blog post, the devs at Red Hook Studios has discussed what it feels like, and what they plan for the future.
“There are a lot of things we can say about hitting the one million copies threshold, but none of them truly encapsulate the event,” they said. “We are humbled, grateful, excited, freaked out, dizzy… More than anything, though: WE THANK YOU!”
“Our goal was always to make the game without diluting our original creative vision, and then let it succeed or fail based upon its own merits. We are beyond happy that people have found it captivating.”
They then go on to discuss the studio’s future plans. First up is the upcoming DLC for Darkest Dungeon, The Crimson Court, coming in early 2017. Official modding support is also on the way, opening up the Steam Workshop for fans of the game. Red Hook also want to get their final Kickstarter rewards out, as well as other possible merchandise. “We have some things in the pipe already, but we invite interested partner companies to propose co-productions at the business inquiries line in the signature block of this post.” they said.
They also mentioned that they are working on a second game, known currently as “Game 2”. No other details were revealed quite yet, but they stressed that they will not stop updating and supporting Darkest Dungeon.
Finally, Red Hook finished by stating “We would also like to thank so many wonderful people and organizations that were involved in helping us get to this point. Here are a few, but the list is by no means complete: dear friends at IndieMegaBooth, Valve, Sony, Humble, GOG, Apple… we began listing all the other independent developers that we owe thanks to, but the list was getting super long and we still are afraid of forgetting people that have been incredibly important and helpful. So let’s make the thank you general and widespread: if you know us and have helped us, you know what we are thankful for.”
