Ridiculous Fishing has made close to $1M in sales

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

Ismail said the game has sold almost 300,000 copies since launch. This many copies at $2.99 per game has brought sales of the fishing-and-shooting title to around $900,000.

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

Ridiculous Fishing launched for iOS in March and won a 2013 Apple Design Award.

"We actually didn't think we would win it, so when we sent Zack [Gage] to the ceremony, we told him not to dress fancy," Ismail said.

"I think he was wearing flip flops," added Nijman.
