Streets of Red finds sales success on Switch, all porting and development costs recouped in just 10 days, new content coming

Streets of Red is your newest Switch eShop success story. The game has done wonders for Secret Base, the developer of the title. In the blurb below, you can get all the details on the game's success from Tobe at Secret Base.

Streets of Red is a tiny game, made by a tiny team from the tiny island of Singapore. Being based so far away in SEA, it was never easy making indie games which are usually targeted at the western audience. Yet after 5 years since I've first sat down and decide that this is the game I want to make, the game has finally launch with such positive result I could never have imagined.

Reviewers in general has been really nice to us, giving us a solid 8 or above, often comparing us to Scott Pilgrim and Castle Crashers. Sales wise, it's more than I've dare hope for. In fact, at the time I am writing this, Streets of Red is actually ranked 9th on the Nintendo Europe eShop best selling chart! Having sold more than 10,000 copies, we have managed to recoup our porting and development cost in just under 10 days.

This is completely unexpected, as one would know if you have been following my twitter account, I have largely refused to look at our sales. Because for the longest time, I just want to enjoy the comments and feedback from players and reviewers, new friends and old ones, rather than sighing over sales I did not have. It was until one game tweeted an image of Streets of Red ranking 14th that I start to realized what happened (That's not true - I'm still kinda lost)..This is not the end, however. Moving forward, we have some plans for updates, contents and maybe gifts for our supporters. It will take some time, but hopefully soon.

Lastly, thanks, thanks, thanks and thanks again for the kind words and helping to make a dream come true.
