Merge Games has announced that Smalland: Survive the Wilds, its diminutive survival-craft-'em-up, has sold 200,000 copies since launching back in March. As you might expect with sales as encouraging as those, Merge has also pledged to continue supporting Smalland into the future. Who'd have thunk?

In a new Steam post, Merge celebrates Smalland's sales milestone by sharing community-created artwork of several of the game's environments and characters. The studio says it's been "blown away" by players' response to Smalland, as well as players' "dedication and love" for the game.

Of course, Smalland's journey doesn't stop here. Merge says that it's got "even more in store" for the game; in future, you can expect regular updates, new content drops, and "engaging experiences" to make sure you don't grow tired of this tiny wonderland. Seems like the recent Giant's Fall update is just the beginning of Merge's plans for Smalland.

Smalland is a small game with a pretty big sales presence.

Smalland: Survive the Wilds was released for PC via Steam Early Access back in late March. Similar to Obsidian's Grounded, it's a survival game in which you are shrunk down to the size of an insect and must survive the surprisingly harsh wilderness of this now-huge land.

As you explore the world of Smalland, you'll encounter insects you can befriend and ride, as well as hostile bugs you'll have to fight. You can make a home for yourself by building your very own encampment, and you can do so pretty much wherever you like; if you want to build a literal treehouse fort to keep out the beetles, then you can do that.

You can buy Smalland: Survive the Wilds right now on Steam. If you've just picked the game up and it's all feeling a bit overwhelming, then why not take a look at our very fine Smalland guides? They'll help you to find your place, because hey, it turns out it's a small world after all.
