Trials HD Reaches Two Million Unit Sales
Trials HD was easily one of my favorite XBLA games from Xbox’s “Summer of Arcade” back in 2009. It provided a lot of fun and challenge, and with quick reload times it was easy to keep trying and waste hours and hours. RedLynx (redlynx.com) announced today that Trials HD, its award-winning motorcycle stunts game for Xbox LIVE Arcade, has surpassed the two million units sold mark across the base game and both DLCs.
“It’s been a little more than a year and a half since Trials HD was released,” said Tero Virtala, CEO of RedLynx. “For a digitally downloaded game, this is a significant milestone, and shows one of the many ways the digital space is quickly growing and the industry itself is changing and evolving.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the success, and we’d like to thank all our fans for their continuous support and enthusiasm for our game.”
Gamers and journalists alike have been asking what’s next for the Trials franchise, and with this latest milestone achievement questions are likely to form again, but so far the developer has declined to divulge its next move.
“Naturally we are quite pleased with the success of Trials HD, but the most important thing for us is to continue making excellent games that other gamers will like,” said Antti Ilvessuo, Creative Director of RedLynx. “Whatever the future holds remains to be seen, but currently we have six teams working on six games, so I can guarantee there are other great RedLynx games in the works.
“Other than that, I must remain silent. It is the Finnish way. That, and sitting in a stiflingly hot sauna during midsummer without saying a word. That is the Finnish way.”
