Dust: An Elysian Tail passes 14k on the leaderboards in 24 hours
Humble Hearts’ Dust: An Elysian Tail wrapped up this year’s Summer of Arcade yesterday, and in just over 24 of your standard Earth hours the leaderboards have jumped to over 14,000 players. While leaderboards aren’t a perfect measure for sales, they often give us a semi-accurate glance at the numbers. Dust‘s development was primarily a one man show with Dean Dodrill responsible for both the art and programming of the game. Dodrill tweeted his excitement this morning at how well the game has been received, and while it’s not likely to outsell Minecraft, Castle Crashers or the Trials games, having so many players drop their points on the game in one day is huge news for this most indie of studios. Congrats, Humble Hearts!
