Core Keeper sales are through the roof, which is great news for developer Pugstorm and publisher Fireshrine Games. The game is only two weeks out from release and it's already hit the 500k copies sold mark. Will it hit 1 million by the end of the month? Well, if they keep selling 250k units a week, then it's definitely going to happen.
Core Keeper sales were solid from the start, selling 100k units in its first two days. It has a 91% 'Very Positive' rating on Steam, and a roadmap that will probably be expanded upon as Core Keeper chases down 1 million copies sold.
“We have been so excited by the community’s response to Core Keeper and are thrilled that more than half a million players have already joined us on the game’s journey,” said Sarah Hoeksma, Marketing Director at Fireshine Games. “We’re already hard at work on some exciting plans for the game’s future, and can’t wait to share more in the weeks and months ahead.”
What is Core Keeper?
If you're looking at these Core Keeper sales and going "what have I missed?" don't worry, I've got you covered. In Core Keeper, a casual indie adventure RPG, players are trapped deep underground and must build their base, craft new equipment, power up the core, and survive. There's giant monsters to defeat, hidden secrets to discover, crops to farm, and new recipes to cook. In this mining sandbox adventure, 1-8 players can team up online and mine resources and find crystals, fossils, and trinkets in a procedurally generated world. However, before you take on the world, be sure to also craft what you need, which can range from new items, armor, and equipment.
