Maybe that’s why it’s the fastest-selling PlayStation Network title to ever be released. thatgamecompany isn’t known for creating blockbuster titles with incredibly high production values like other games that top sales lists. Nope, instead the studio focuses on developing interactive experiences nobody else would think to release.

Starting with fl0 and Flower on the PSN, the company has always had a knack for creating software your friends could marvel at and ask, “Wow. Is that really a game?” Why, yes. Yes it is. And now it’s selling like hot-cakes. Maybe it does pay to be original in this business. The studio also announced that the game’s soundtrack will soon be available.
