Edmund McMillen's The End is Nigh sells more than 100,000 copies

Hellish platformer The End is Nigh from Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac developer Edmund McMillenhas sold over 100,000 copies.

Speaking to PCGamesInsider.biz, the indie games maker said the project had hit that milestone a few months ago, but he felt the title could have sold better had he done more press for the project.

The game launched for PC back in July 2017 before coming to Nintendo's Switch in December. The title was a collaboration between McMillen and fellow indie developer Tyler Glaiel.

"Could have sold a lot more"

"We passed 100,000 units sold a few months back," McMillen said.

"I'm definitely happy about how it has sold and made back what we invested time wise and budget in the first day, so it would be shitty to complain. But I kind of wish I had the fortitude to have hyped it more and done more press overall for it because I think it could have sold a lot more if I had."
