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.
