Mortal Shell is an upcoming Souls-like game whose recent closed beta was so in-demand, developer Cold Symmetry had to make it open. Now that the demo’s been finished, some stats have been released in celebration.
That beta is now over and the developers have shared some of the numbers, which is why we know that over five million people watched it being streamed on Twitch and YouTube, over 350,000 people played it, and the merchant’s cat was stroked over 150,000 times.
But the most important stat is the third, quantifying how many players stopped to pet the sweet cat that appears. Seemingly, 150,000 or so, or less than half, saw it appropriate to stroke one of the beloved kitties.
Perhaps they didn’t think a ‘pet’ option would appear, or they didn’t notice the feline companion or Mortal Shell is attracting a disproportionate amount of dog people. What matters is the numbers, and they tell a harrowing story.
Overall, the general consensus coming out of the beta seems to be pretty positive. The player numbers just show how many are interested in seeing what the full version of Mortal Shell will look like, which is expected to release this September.
We have been overwhelmed by the response to our beta. Thank you to everyone who jumped in and gave feedback and reports on the game.
We can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on Mortal Shell later this year! ?? pic.twitter.com/bXWBx4Tutd
