Ridiculous Fishing Nears Million Dollar Sales Milestone

Vlambeer's ridiculously popular iOS game, Ridiculous Fishing, is edging towards $1 million in sales, developers Rami Ismail and Jan Willem Nijman revealed today during a panel at the 2013 Game Developers Conference Europe.

"We're so close," Ismail told Polygon. "We're almost at $1 million."

That figure is based on sales of 300,000 copies since its launch. Ridiculous Fishing launched for iOS in March and won a 2013 Apple Design Award. Ismail said the game has sold almost 300,000 copies since launch and at $2.99 per game, the company has managed to rake in right around $900,000. Back in April the studio said that developers shouldn't be afraid to price their games at $3. It turns out that they were right about that.

This is good news considering how much the small development team has lamented in the past about its game being cloned prior to its release.

Vlambeer is currently working on Wasteland Kings, a post-apocalyptic rogue-like action game that was created as a prototype for this year's Mojam Bundle…
