One of the standout indie titles this year was Untitled Goose Game by the Australian-based developer House House Games. The game got a digital release on the Nintendo Switch and PC in September and more recently arrived on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
In October, we found out downloads were in “excess of 100,000” and now the co-founder of Panic (the publisher of Untitled Goose Game) Cabel Sasser has revealed the title has passed one million sales worldwide three months after the original launch. This figure combines digital sales across all platforms.
The reaction was beyond anything we could have imagined. The fan art, the writing, yes the memes, protest signs, Chrissy Teigen, Muppets?! It feels once-in-a-lifetime. We hope we brought some joy into your life, because you brought so much into ours. And we’ll never forget it.
House House previously said Untitled Goose had been so successful, it could continue to make games for as long as it liked. In November, the developer also won the breakthrough award at the 37th Golden Joystick Awards in London, “thanks to the to the enduring popularity of its stealth puzzle gem”, Untitled Goose Game.
