Laughing Jackal, the UK developer responsible for some of the most enjoyable titles on the PlayStation Minis platform, has sold close to one million titles worldwide. The studio – behind favourites such as OMG-Z and Hungry Giraffe – announced the news in a candid blog post, which included plenty of praise for the label itself.
The team explained that Minis have given it “the opportunity to learn about the complexities of publishing on console” while also enhancing its relationship with Sony. It added that its integration into various PlayStation Plus promotions has given its games greater exposure across the globe, which has enhanced the sales of its other properties.
While Laughing Jackal is now moving away from Minis – to start work on a full-priced PSN title codenamed “Mystery Game X” – the studio does not regret its time with the minigame platform. “They are certainly not something we regret getting involved in and have given us a great start as a developer,” the team concluded.
Isn’t it nice when things work out?
