Tomorrow Corporation has announced that Little Inferno has managed to sell more than one million units across all platforms, including Nintendo Switch and Wii U. To celebrate this milestone, both Little Inferno and Human Resource Machine are currently on sale via the Nintendo eShop for a limited time. Sales on Nintendo consoles account for 12.6 percent of the total number of units sold. A more thorough breakdown from the developer is as follows:
We’ve been so busy working on 7 Billion Humans, that we almost missed an exciting milestone last month: Little Inferno has sold over 1 Million Copies! If we include bundles, that number is actually closer to 2 million legitimate purchases of the Little Inferno Entertainment Fireplace – we hope they’ve kept everyone warm! To celebrate we’re running a Summer in the Winter Sale on all of our platforms – starting today we’re putting Little Inferno and Human Resource Machine on sale everywhere (Thursday for the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo Switch).
We wish we could visit everyone who bought Little Inferno and ask each person millions of questions – but until we’re able to do that, we thought we’d dig through the ashes and see what we could discover. Here’s what we found! We released Little Inferno in 15 different stores, starting in November 2012. Over the course of the next two years we released on all but the Switch, which we thought was pretty good for a team of 3 using our own home grown engine.
Nintendo Platforms (12.6%): Little Inferno was one of 5 indie titles that launched alongside the Wii U eShop. We were delighted to see the fan responses and illustrations from the Miiverse, and we posted a bunch of them here. All three of us have been big Nintendo fans since childhood, so we were excited to be able to bring the game to Switch a few years later, especially since we could finally give players 2-player mode.
