Tagged games:

Japanese shop-management game Recettear has sold 300,000 copies since its launch three years ago, Carpe Fulgur have revealed on their website.


Additionally, Carpe Fulgur’s other projects, Chantelise and Fortune Summoners, have both been “very successful” as well, according to the localization studio. “All our products have, to date, turned a profit for us inside of six months, and then proceeded to produce nothing but pure profit from there on out,” Carpe Fulgur write on their site, adding that the studio “will not be going anywhere for a very long time.”


Carpe Fulgur are presently translating The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC for Xseed, who will publish the game in the west on PC and PSP.

I own it but I still haven't played it. That's good to hear, though. I'd love to see the Japanese develop an indie scene like the west.

I'm planning to get this in the future.

I knew I should of gotten it in that one bundle....(I think there was a bundle).

i haven't bought it yet lol. Waiting on the next sale.

Game seems really fun. No doubt the internet meme helped it sell.

 Nintendopie  Was obviously right and I was obviously wrong. I will forever be a lesser being than them. (6/16/13)

It wasn't as good as I'd hoped, unfortunately, but it's not a bad game by any stretch. In the interest of rooting for the little guy, I'm happy to hear this news.

Will more than likely go on sale again on christmas/thanksgiving.

 

Anyways, I hope a bundle of it appears in a humble bundle or some other site :P.



Yay! At last they have achieved 1% of the sales they deserve. For anyone who hasn't played it yet, pick it up.

You do not have the right to never be offended.

to help put things into perspective the original sales target for the localization was 10k...



I told all you fuckers to pick it up several times the last couple times it was on sale. And yet there are still people whining that they haven't gotten it yet?
