David Szymanski’s DUSK – a first person shooter inspired by old-school classics like Doom, Wolfenstein, and Hexen – has had a fairly solid run thus far. Having exited Steam Early Access in December 2018, it’s since gone on to sell 69,420 copies in total, out of which 40k were sold after its exit from Early Access. According to New Blood Interactive CEO Dave Oshry on Twitter, “We’ve since sold about 40k copies since our launch on December 10th.”
Keeping in mind the fact that the game is only available on Steam, these are some fairly good numbers. DUSK will also be coming to consoles, though which consoles in particular is yet to be confirmed. Current owners can also look forward to some nifty updates, like New Game Plus.
Co-op, new localization features, and Steam Workshop integration are also being worked on. Interestingly, DUSK will also have a “Big Box Physical Collector’s Edition” containing some named soap. And it smells like bacon. As far as sales pitches go, it’s definitely the strangest. Stay tuned for more information on DUSK’s console release in the coming months.
I was going to wait until we hit 100k to announce any sales numbers but…
DUSK has now sold 69,420 copies…

To expand on this:
DUSK sold 8,000 pre orders
We then sold another 22k copies in Early Access
We've since sold about 40k copies since our launch on December 10th
More importantly, with the exception of a 15% launch discount, DUSK has only been on Steam and never been on sale.
