Paradox did it again, by now most people should be aware of the fact that they create awesome games. They touch genres that other developers and publishers gave up, and Paradox does it right, they create games that amaze people. The latest release was the city simulation game called Cities: Skylines.
And it seems the game sold like crazy, Paradox did mention in a recent forum post that they sold the game already over a million of times. CEO of Paradox Interactive Fredrik Wester said about the success of the game “We continue to be amazed at just how players have embraced Cities: Skylines. The game is still selling at a steady pace, which is remarkable for a game that has been on sale for well over a month. Once again, we want to thank everyone that has supported and continues to support this game.”.
Paradox is known to touch niche genres and to release really complex games. They release less streamlined games and that is great. It’s good to hear that they have success with this strategy. Now it would be great if they touch other abandoned genres. Wouldn’t it be great if they would develop a remake similar to games like Industry Giant and Capitalism? You could think of several genres, there are still a lot of game types that need a comeback. Paradox is the only developer that could do it at the moment, all others are too much busy streamlining their own product. Let’s see what Paradox will come up with next.
