Cuphead sure is successful for a two year-old.
Studio MDHR's indie darling Cuphead is now two years old, and in that time the game has managed to sell over 5 million copies on Xbox, Switch, and PC. Last we checked the game was at 4 million copies, meaning Cuphead managed to move 1 million units in two months' time, a feat accomplished thanks to the Nintendo Switch port.
To celebrate the milestone, the devs have planned five days of festivities including giveaways, a 20% discount on the game, and more goodies.
The acknowledgement of this kind of indie success is incredibly important. As more and more publishers embrace live games, indies are seen as a bastion of creativity; the Shovel Knights, Celestes, Cupheads and Dead Cells of the market serve as direct inspirations for smaller teams working themselves to death to make their dream games come true.
