Bastion passes 500,000 sales

Supergiant Games' critically acclaimed downloadable game Bastion has cleared the 500,000 mark in sales, the developer has announced. The company credits the recent holiday sales on Steam and Xbox Live Arcade for pushing it over the milestone.

"We're happy to have this many people playing and to be in a position to make more games on our own terms," said Supergiant's Greg Kasavin in the announcement. "When we set out to make Bastion, a sales number like that seemed astronomical to us, so it feels great to have hit that mark. It goes to show that a lot of folks out there like what we’re doing and want us to keep going, which is great, because we intend to stick together as a team and do just that."

The team also touted awards from over 60 publications, so the small indie start-up must be feeling pretty good about itself. The game recently launched on Chrome as well, and released the Stranger's Dream DLC for free on PC, and a buck on Xbox 360.
