Castle Pixel’s Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King has accomplished a significant milestone in the past few days.

The publisher, FDG Entertainment, took to Twitter to announce the news to fans who have remained loyal to the title.

According to the official summary, Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King allows players to “Explore a vast open game world in classic action-adventure fashion as Lily, Knight of the Rose! Slash your way through monster-infested dungeons to save the Kingdom of Blossom from eternal darkness. Collect unique weapons, spells, and more during your journey to take down powerful bosses and solve clever puzzles. Be part of a vivid, dynamic story passed down from grandfather to grandchildren by influencing the course of events yourself!”

The game contains over 15 hours of gameplay, a large world to explore, five dungeons, and impressive pixel art. The game is told as a bedtime story to two young children from their grandfather. The game is a single-player experience with no multiplayer.

FDG Entertainment has announced that Blossom Tales has sold over 100,000 copies on the Nintendo Switch. This is a major for the development team.

After the release of Blossom Tales on Steam, the developer almost went bankrupt. The Kickstarter campaign for the game also failed, but Castle Pixel didn’t lose hope.

Thanks to massive fan support, the company pulled through and had more success on the Nintendo Switch. Last year, FDG Entertainment thanked fans in a Tweet, stating, “Switch revenues surpass Steam lifetime revenues 20 times!”

There was a limited edition physical release from Limited Run games but has sold out since the announcement. The physical edition was released on a region-free cartridge, but the digital edition is still available on the Nintendo Switch eStore.

Since the game is a single-player RPG, there haven’t been any additional DLC or expansions. The title is an inexpensive story-driven action game but has drawn in many players. Castle Pixel continues to update any issues with the game on Steam and Nintendo Switch.

Castle Pixel hasn’t given any hints into their new project since the release of Blossom Tales. The developer has expressed interest in releasing the game in additional languages in the future.

Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King is available now on Steam and the Nintendo Switch.
