Not a big surprise but Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge has managed to shift over a million in the first week after release. Developer Tribute Games confirmed the milestone yesterday on the official Twitter.

The game has managed to build up a Very Positive rating quite quickly on Steam too, with over 5,000 users giving it their thoughts. It has a pretty high 85 on Metacritic too so overall it's largely positive. Publisher Dotemu also mentioned on Twitter how it was the "challenge of a lifetime" and thanked Nickelodeon and Tribute Games for getting it done.

Nice to see arcade-style beat 'em up classics still doing so well.

In case you missed it previously, I showed it working perfectly on the Steam Deck:

Yes, with GOG's legendary record of Linux innovation and support I - too - am disappointed. /s

Which uses Epic Online Spyware, which is also famous for its horrendous network code tied with constant disconnects, and possibly an extra Epic account so that Epic can broke for more exclusive titles from what I read? Looks like a hard pass to me.
