    Nice, game was pretty fun. I 100% the game

  • Arcana Drill

    Well, this is great for Grasshopper, expect them to continue producing the almost no sense hack and slash games for a looong time.

  • Kotori Itsuka

    JULIET <3

  • Pyrofrost

    Congrats to Grasshopper on this! Personally, I loved the game; it was short but packed with entertainment value and humor. Hopefully this success means there is possibility for a sequel.

  • Kaien

    I enjoyed it, it’s a crazy game. It’s also shit though.

  • evilmajikman

    Game was fun. Too bad Suda51 dropped the ball with Killer is Dead though. Hopefully he’ll go back and do a Lollipop Chainsaw 2.

      Killer is Dead is better than Lolipop lol

      • loempiavreter

        Killer is Dead is the best Ghm game since Killer7.

      • thaKingRocka

        KiD has the more enjoyable combat system, but I liked the writing and presentation of LC better. The story usually doesn’t matter much to me, but LC’s was funny and playful, while KiD’s only employed it with absurd scenarios instead of human characters making a joke of the situation. I can’t remember specifics very well at this point, but that’s the vibe I got.

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          I like Killer Is Dead’s world much better than how LC is designed.

          And the Story’s actually quite amusing in KID.

          I cant wait to play it on PC.

          • thaKingRocka

            I will probably grab it when it goes on the cheap. I wouldn’t mind revisiting the game without all that tearing.

  • Monterossa

    Congrats. The game sucks but Juliet sells it. Even I got one copy.

    I’m proud to be one of the 1 million =)

  • Somebodyissilent

    Love this game. 2 please?

  • EinMugenTenshin

    Juliet is gold, and if they’d get some decent gameplay they’ll strike gold like nothing else.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Sex does sell…

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      Fun sells

    • ShadowDivz

      I think everybody (should) know that by now.
      Why wouldn’t it? Humans are lustful creatures.

      But im sure the game is pretty fun.

  • leingod

    Nice premise, fun characters, but the gameplay kinda sucks. I guess that’s what stopped the game from selling even more copies.

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    Not a very deep game, but the voice acting sure is good.

  • Learii

    that was long to get 1 million T_T

    • Sylveria Shini

      It’s a relatively low profile game in a genre that’s not exactly known for making million sellers. Not to mention it was made by a fairly small studio. For them, 1million is probably Call of Duty numbers.

  • DarthSithZero

    I want a sequel, you can’t get enough Juliet.

  • Skode

    Im a fan of his work but never did pick this one up, maybe if the discount goes west i will finally bite and enjoy it for the mindless fun it seemed to offer in the trailers i saw for it back in the day.
