Shadow Complex sets download record

Written by David Stellmack

Over 200,000 purchases in a single week


Epic Games-owned studio Chair Entertainment has set a new record for the most downloaded purchases of a single-player title on Xbox Live Arcade with Shadow Complex. It quite an achievement for a single player title priced at $15 that is only available via digital download on a single console system.

Normally, multiplayer titles dominate the Xbox Live Arcade, which really raises the bar on what a company can achieve with a single player title on Xbox Live Arcade. Shadow Complex has drawn a lot of praise from the critics and players alike.

Having played the title ourselves, we can tell you that it is a high-quality game that is well worth the $15 price. It was also an excellent choice for Microsoft to include as part of their Summer of Arcade promotion. We think that the response to Shadow Complex will likely encourage other developers to work on high-quality, single player titles for Xbox Live Arcade releases, as well.
