Limbo sells one million, coming to Mac

Playdead today announced that its critically acclaimed platforming adventure Limbo has sold over one million copies worldwide.

According to the Danish independent developer, the title has been played by gamers in 153 countries in nine languages across Xbox Live, PSN and Steam.

Playdead said the game’s success has enabled it to regain its independence “by fully acquiring the company from early investors, laying the groundwork for the studio to begin developing and financing their next title”.

Playdead CEO Dino Patti said: "We are grateful to everyone who supported us over the past few years, and look forward to forging new partnerships that will both let us reach new heights as a studio and give our director, Arnt Jensen, room to grow creatively."

Playdead told us in August that it is using the Unity platform for the development of its next project, which it described as “a little more ambitious than Limbo.”
