Admittedly, I didn't think the game would succeed all that well. Just enough to not flop, maybe, but not more than covering their costs and a little more.

Holy **** was I ever wrong. This is probably one of those good things, showing that a small-ish developer can succeed like a big budget game if they do it right.

It sounded too short to be well received but it seems their execution and budgeting paid off. Good for them! Still don't forgive Ninja Theory for wrecking Devil May Cry with that hideous joke of a Dante.
