Yesterday, The Behemoth, developer of the animated 2D adventure game Castle Crashers, announced that just 10 months after the game’s initial release the one millionth player has played Castle Crashers. According to Behemoth, this makes Castle Crashers the fastest growing XBLA title ever. This feat is made all the more amazing when you consider the fact that Castle Crashers is one of the pricier XBLA titles, weighing in at 1200 MS Points ($15 USD), and has never been put on sale.
Mind you, this doesn’t mean that one million people have purchased the game because players are logged whether they were the ones who purchased the game or if they are playing with a friend who purchased the game. Still, we’re pretty sure that Castle Crashers has put up some impressive sales numbers; a success which is undoubtedly deserved, judging by the critical and community praise of the game.
So as Castle Crashers tallies up its new conquests, Behemoth quietly continues to work on its upcoming title which remains ambiguous, but shows the signature quirkiness and charm of a signature Behemoth title.
