50,000 copies sold!

Posted November 28th, 2014 by Tynan Sylvester

Hey all, just wanted to quickly celebrate with you. RimWorld sold its 50,000th copy two days ago!

There’s not much more to say, except for that I greatly appreciate the support from all you players, modders, and especially translators and testers. It’s great to see a community spring up and strengthen over time like this. And for me, it’s great to be able to do the work that I love to do every day, and have it mean something to people. So thank you all.

    I’m glad it has been a success – this game fulfills a niche that I didn’t even know existed in my own taste for video games and is so well implemented thus far that it certainly deserves praise and attention.

    Alpha 8 is going to be released soon ?

    We dunno, GhosT.

    Tynan said he was gonna make the time between updates longer in the last update, so probably not.

    That’s the most accurate description of how it felt for me personally, I didn’t know I’d like a game like this but boy did I spent time on the first version I got my hands on .. great work!

    I’m sure you’ll sell many times more once you get on steam. I appreciate you not being like some other devs and cashing in early then stopping development. It’s shaping up great.

    Keep up the good work Tynan, you should be very proud of your achievement so far.

    Remember to totaly inflate your product on launch so you can sell it to some stupid multinational for $$$$ like notch did.

  15. Congrats, man!

    Great stuff.
    I think you’re doing an awesome job with the game.
    Together with all the modding support there is certainly a lot of potential in it for the future.

    Your game is absolutely fantastic. I think I can speak for many players when I say that this game is LITERALLY the game I wanted without even knowing about it, so keep it up and this can become the most awesome indee game out there.

    Very nice!

    It’s great to see someone still cares about this gaming niche. Honestly, your work is so polished I have to keep reminding myself that it’s still in Alpha. Congrats and keep up the great work. 50k is only a stairstep. The following is going to grow exponentially.

    You deserve it dude. No other developers are working anywhere near at your productivity level, you’ve earned every penny.

  24. Mathias kiær

    And no other developer keeps the crowd this informed!
