Going Medieval has managed some pretty impressive sales numbers in its first week of availability. The medieval colony-building survival sim has racked up 175k sales across Steam, the Epic Games Store, and GOG.com.
Why have Going Medieval sales been so strong?
Foxy Voxel's colony-builder appears to have struck a chord with gamers. As well as selling more than 175,000 units in its first week, the developer also confirmed that the game hit the top spot in the weekly Steam charts for the week of its release. Foxy Voxel's Vladimir Zivkovic says the sales figures are "testament to all the hard work" the team has been putting into the game, as well as the commitment of publisher The Irregular Corporation.
Going Medieval is currently in Early Access, and Foxy Voxel says it has big plans for the game's future. The studio recently revealed the development roadmap for Going Medieval, with features like mounted siege weaponry, a vassal system, grand objectives, and plenty more on the way in the future. There aren't any cast-iron release dates in place for when we can expect these new features to be added, so we'll have to wait and see when they get implemented.
What is Going Medieval?
Foxy Voxel's sim tasks you with surviving "a turbulent Medieval age" by building a colony. You'll have to defend against regular raids, keep your villagers happy with their lot, and gradually conquer the wilderness around you in an effort to earn your place in this savage era. To do so, you'll have access to 3D terrain-shaping tools you can use to craft a fortress to your specifications, with your colony growing from humble beginnings into a truly mighty medieval-era castle.
