Good job, world: Recettear is a success

That quirky, oddly named indie item-shop RPG you cannot pronounce is a hit! Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale has been on sale for a month (if you include the pre-order period), and in that time it's managed to wrack up over 26,000 purchases amongst the digital distribution circuit.

"You fulfilled our dream -- our dream of making a living from bringing the best indie games Japan has to offer to the English-speaking world," says project director Andrew Dice. "26,000 copies in four weeks is an incredible success in the indie scene, especially for an unknown Japanese game nobody had ever heard of a few months ago from a couple of dudes with no previous work to their name."

Carpe Fulgur has "begun to look at a number of future potential titles for localization," and will have some announcements to make in the "near future." I'm ecstatic we've reached the point where these out-of-nowhere titles can be successful enough to fund the work of talented creators for years to come.
