Untitled Goose Game has surpassed one million copies sold, publisher Panic has revealed. That news comes straight from co-founder Cabel Sasser.

While we’re usually hesitant to report on data relating to multiplatform releases unless we have the breakdown of sales by platform, it was only until recently that Untitled Goose Game was a console exclusive on Switch. That means a good chunk of downloads originated on Nintendo’s console.

Who won’t make it out alive?

Hello, my geese and goslings! This week on NEP we’ve got some controversial and complex talking points: Hero being banned then unbanned in official Nintendo France tournaments (and what constitutes an OP character or a ban), Mario Kart Tour and the success and failure of mobile games and how that affects genuine gaming, and the Switch Lite launching on the market. We then get some great listener mail sent to us and we blather on there, too, because complex issues require complex analysis.
