Crate Entertainment Celebrates a Million Copies Sold

Crate Entertainment Celebrates a Million Copies Sold - Grim Dawn - MMORPG.com

As one of the first successfully crowd-funded games -- even before there was such a thing in widespread use -- Grim Dawn is an indie success with over a million copies sold. To celebrate the big occasion, Crate has put the game on sale for 50% off on the Grim Dawn web site or through the Humble Store.

It’s crazy to think that this success story somehow arose from such humble and uncertain beginnings, overcoming so many setbacks and challenges. I repeatedly questioned what I was doing those first three, hard years of development. Looking back, I think the only thing that kept me going on the bad days, was the responsibility I felt to see it through, for the people who had invested time in the project and those who supported us early on through our website. Even with that drive to see it through, no matter my doubts, the later support of thousands more backers on Kickstarter and Early Access, validated what we were doing and gave us a real shot at making the dream a reality. 

It was still a long road and lot of sweat and tears, from the 2012 Kickstarter to our 2016 release but I had the great fortune to find amazing teammates who made that journey a lot easier and the game much better than it could have been otherwise. Much thanks must also go to my long-time friends “Rhis,” “Jmack” and Brian Parnell (now working on his own project Praey for the Gods) – without their early help; Grim Dawn may have never got off the ground. 

Since the release of Grim Dawn, the Crate team has grown to 14 developers. We’re now working to finish up the Grim Dawn expansion and, because we can never seem to make things easy on ourselves, we’ve started some other projects as well. 

We’re looking forward to getting the Grim Dawn expansion into the hands of fans and we can’t wait to share news about our future projects. Until then, keep perfecting your builds, collecting those crafting mats, making morally questionable quest choices and remember it’s not healthy to spend too much time in the void! 

...Oh and try not to piss off any gods (or do?), keep away from Loxmere and don’t eat too many untouched meals – who knows where they’ve been!
