Graceful Explosion Machine Sells 50,000 On Switch; 50% Celebration Sale Now

A little over a year ago a small indie shooter released for the Nintendo Switch and was fantastic fit for Nintendo’s new console. That game was Graceful Explosion Machine and it brought simple gameplay and combined it with exciting graphics and crazy score combos. It was great back then, and still holds up today.

The developers, Vertex Pop, announced today that the game has sold over 50,000 copies and they are hard at work on a new game for the Switch, which should release in 2019. For now you can snag Graceful Explosion Machine on sale 50% off. That’s only $6.49 – a fantastic price for a great game! The sale lasts for 7 days. Read our full review here for more information on the title.


So just how well did it do? To date, Graceful Explosion Machine has sold just under 50,000 copies on the Nintendo Switch. This is such a remarkable achievement for our humble little game! We continued to support the game (with features like the new score screen, highlight screenshots, and video capture) and continue to be amazed by (and grateful for) the community’s support and enthusiasm. Most importantly, GEM’s success put us in a strong position to get back to work…

Speaking of which! We are definitely working on a new game, and we’re excited to share it with you… but not just yet. For now, let’s state the obvious: it’s an action game, it’s colourful, and it’s coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019. Sign up for our newsletter to be the first to hear about it.

Until then though, we want to celebrate our first year anniversary with our biggest sale yet. Graceful Explosion Machine is 50% offon the Nintendo Switch eShop (and Steam as well) starting today, for one week only.
