Skul: The Hero Slayer is smashing records and taking names. The indie game got its full release on Steam recently, went on to sell 100k copies and accumulate 40k concurrent viewers on Twitch.

It is safe to say that Skul: The Hero Slayer is a verified smash-hit. The indie rogue-lite's 1.0 Version was just released on Steam and was promptly purchased no less than 100k times. 

Skul: The Hero Slayer, published by NEOWIZ and developed by SouthPAW Games, has also stuck around in the Top Ten of Global Sellers since launch and is showing no signs of slowing down. 

The past weekend also brought news of a whopping 40k concurrent viewers on Twitch, shattering Skul's previous high.

The content added to round out the 1.0 Version of Skul also brought a high level of quality the players and critics respond to with even higher praises and Twitch viewership. 

Screen Rant remarked that Skul is "a great experience and one that will captivate players through its mixture of charming play and engaging narrative," while PC Invasion said that Skul is "a wonderfully entertaining rogue-lite with great visuals and strong gameplay."

"The 1.0 Launch has gone better than we could’ve ever imagined and we’re extremely grateful for that," said Sang Woo Park, CEO of SouthPAW Games. "However, on the other hand, we’ve also identified a lot of areas for improvement and are closely monitoring our community’s feedback while we work hard to get an update out."

Skul is now available for purchase for PC (via Steam ). The game is currently enjoying a 20 per cent discount.
