Cities: Skylines Sells Over 1 Million Copies #CitiesSkylines


Paradox Interactive has announced that Colossal Order's city builder, Cities: Skylines, has sold over 1 million copies.

Quote:
STOCKHOLM – April 14, 2015 – Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order, the city building genre’s new ‘It’ couple, have today revealed that Cities: Skylines, the monumentally successful city simulation game for PC, Mac and Linux has smashed through the 1 million sales barrier since its release on March 10.

Widely hailed as the new benchmark for the genre, Cities: Skylines has captured the gaming public’s imagination with a staggering 33,000 mods having been created to date and made available via the Steam Workshop, with an average of 21,000 concurrent players continuously online since launch.

Commenting on the continued success of the game, CEO of Paradox Interactive Fredrik Wester said, “We continue to be amazed at just how players have embraced Cities: Skylines. The game is still selling at a steady pace, which is remarkable for a game that has been on sale for well over a month. Once again, we want to thank everyone that has supported and continues to support this game.”

Cities: Skylines is now available for purchase for $29.99, with a deluxe edition available for $39.99 that includes five in-game historical monuments.

Fix headline: Not-Sim City Sells 1 Million Copies, fans state "I sure wish I could play Sim City."

Too long?

That'd actually be hilarious to find in the little twitter thing in the game... or as a loading screen tip.

IIRC, the lead on this project is a woman. SJW's won't like a success story and all of us sexist gamers spending money on a woman's game!

I mean... they probably will like it. They'll just spin it so it succeeded in spite of white male gamers who wanted it to fail.

  • Gaming press insists gamers are sexist pigs, who only want to play violent, sexist games.
  • Gaming press holds up idiots like Quinn and Wu as women struggling to gain footing and respect when the industry itself (devs) and it's customers (gamers) are hostile to women
  • Cities: Skylines team is lead by women
  • Gamers buy it in massive numbers, despite supposedly hating non-violent, non-sexist games and female dev
  • Turns our gamers just want good games and will pay for them no matter who makes it. Who knew?

I want you to deeply consider the source from which this emerges, both an expert in this matter and someone from whom you should never face the specter of disdain by virtue of how such expertise was reached.

You're fucking insane.
