Ha. When I met Suda at a press event, I recall saying the game could sell a million over time and he said "I hope so", as I think we both wanted to see some sort of follow up down the road because grashopper worked so hard on the game. I love this silly game for a few reasons from the soundtrack to the fact that it doesn't give a hoot what you think of it if you haven't played it to see what makes it so much goofy fun.

Sadly this is one of the many games in my backlog that I still haven't gotten around to playing since picking it up last summer.

As big fan of Suda's work I'm happy of this result, although I don't consider this his best work is still a good result. Also a person so unique and then so humble and nice when you meet him in person deserves every little big of success he can get.

@Andreia

Now that I think about it, has this guy released any of it's games on PC?
