LONDON – June 9, 2021 – Hold onto your buttresses! Publisher The Irregular Corporation and developer Foxy Voxel are proud to reveal that their colony building and survival sim Going Medieval has flown out of the gates and sold over 175,000 units in its opening week, while also securing the top spot in the weekly Steam sales charts for the week ending June 6.
Check out the Going Medieval Early Access launch trailer:
For those who may have missed last week’s launch discounts, Going Medieval is still available at 10% off in the Epic Mega Sale on Epic Games Store. Customers can also redeem a $10/£10/€10 coupon and grab a monument-al saving on the hit strategy game.
“We’re absolutely thrilled with the response for Going Medieval,” says Nino Rajacic, Co-Founder and Developer at Foxy Voxel, “We felt like we had a great reception from the betas we conducted prior to launch, but the success of the game has surpassed our expectations in the best way possible, and we couldn’t be more grateful to the fans for supporting us. From here on, we’re focused on improving the game even further.”
Vladimir Zivkovic, Co-Founder and Developer at Foxy Voxel, adds “To see Going Medieval begin its journey in the way it has is testament to all the hard work that has been poured into it so far, both here at Foxy Voxel and from our friends at The Irregular Corporation. But – as everyone will see from the roadmap, there is much more to come as we progress from Early Access through to full release.”
Going Medieval transports players back to the Dark Ages, as the known world recovers from a calamitous plague. Survivors have emerged from society’s ashes, and it’s up to you to help them settle in a dangerous land reclaimed by nature. Build your people a home, help shape their lives, and protect them from animals, bandits, and other dangers in a lawless post-calamity age.
Plan, create and build your settlement using a variety of materials at your disposal. Protect your settlers from the elements, including hunger, enemies and even the weather, and defend your colony from rival factions by building impenetrable, multistorey fortresses or strategically placed archers and traps. Observe your settlers, all with unique histories and agendas, to figure out how to best serve them – happy people are productive people, after all.
Going Medieval puts you in control in one of the most dark and dangerous periods of humanity’s history – navigate the dangers or perish like so many before you. With almost infinite replayability, no two playthroughs are the same.
Going Medieval is available today in Early Access on Epic Games Store, Steam and GOG.com. Keep up with the latest news on Twitter @going_medieval, connect with developers Foxy Voxel @FoxyVoxel and compare settlements with the folks at The Irregular Corporation @IrregularCorp.
