Trials HD tops 2m downloads

Publisher-developer RedLynx has revealed its XBLA motorcycle stunts game Trials HD has been downloaded 2m times.

This figure includes purchases of the full game and its two pieces of DLC.

Trials HD also hit shelves earlier this month in the form of Microsoft’s Xbox Live Hits Collection, which also included two other XBLA games – Limbo and Splosion Man. Prior to that it was download-only.

"It’s been a little more than a year and a half since Trials HD was released,” said RedLynx CEO Tero Virtala.

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.”

RedLynx also hinted at a potential sequel.

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,” added creative director Antti Ilvessuo.

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.”
