Starbound sells a million copies in a month

Developer Chucklefish has confirmed: After just a month of availability, indie sandbox Starbound has sold more than a million copies.

The game is on sale via both Steam Early Access and directly from the developer. Chucklefish (who broke the news via Twitter) has not revealed which outlet is selling better, but we’re guessing – given how well it’s placed in the Steam Charts over the past few weeks – a fair chunk of those sales came from Steam.

But! Before the game even looked at being released on Valve‘s network, the team at Chucklefish raised more than $1m in pre-orders – so indie sales play a big part, too.

If you’re not among the million-strong fans already, Starbound is available now on Windows PC, Mac and Linux.
