Shadow Warrior 2 Sales Soar; Free Content Coming

Devolver Digital announces a successful launch for Shadow Warrior 2, Flying Wild Hog's just-released sequel. They say this has sold four times as many copies as their first installment in the shooter remake series from 2013, calling it "Flying Wild Hog's and Devolver Digital’s largest launch ever." They celebrate the news with a "behind the schemes" video, and say they are planning a free content update. Here's word:

A newly released video takes fans behind the scenes with Flying Wild Hog as they wrap development on Shadow Warrior 2. The video covers a variety of topics, touching on game design decisions, artistic liberties, motion capturing bunny rabbits, the Polish game development boom, ramen, and the occasional day drinking.

Flying Wild Hog is currently working on the game's first set of free content drops for the community that has made Shadow Warrior 2 such a success. The first piece is the introduction of the first game’s ultimate katana and fan favorite, the Nobitsura Kage, into Shadow Warrior 2. Coming updates to Shadow Warrior 2 will include new missions and an ultra-hard challenge mode alongside new weapons, items, and co-op ninja characters.

Linux version or GTFO.

Actually haven't finished the first one yet, didn't get around to installing it until recently.

Steam survey has all Linux versions combined at about 1% of the user base. I don't know what it takes to get a game running on multiple operating systems, but that hardly seems like a market for making money.

Good on them!

My thoughts exactly

3rd-ed. I've heard nothing but positive things about it, and I'm glad it's doing well for them.

Really cool game, but multiplayer suffers weird simulated lag-feeling gameplay. Enemies standing in place for several seconds with their health not moving, players doing the same, etc. It was great on the first level, but there's too much going on in the following levels for it to handle I guess. Really marred my experience...

However, these devs are awesome and I have no doubts it will be fixed.

Good stuff from a good developer. They have my support as long as they keep this level of support and quality up for their games.
