Download-only slash-and-art-’em-up, Bastion, has sold over half a million copies, developer SuperGiant Games has announced. The figure was hit last week, after five months on sale over Xbox Live Arcade. 
    It was later released on Steam in August and last month for Google Chrome via the Chrome Web Store.
    “We’re happy to have this many people playing and to be in a position to make more games on our own terms,” creative director and writer Greg Kasavin said.
    “When we set out to make Bastion, a sales number like that seemed astronomical to us, so it feels great to have hit that mark. It goes to show that a lot of folks out there like what we’re doing and want us to keep going, which is great, because we intend to stick together as a team and do just that.”
    Bastion made it into our Top 25 Games of 2011 list at number 12.
