Humble Hearts' RPG makes milestone

Microsoft Studios RPG Dust: An Elysian Tail has sold over 1 million copies, according to creator Dean Dodrill. The game was first released on XBLA on August 15, 2012.

Dodrill told tweeters that around 1 per cent of those sales had been through Linux, and that he was considering a small project next "just to test the tech waters."
