Limbo sells one million copies, dev celebrates by announcing a Mac version

Sometimes sales news can be happily predictable, like Uncharted 3's sales. Some hurt our hearts, like Shadows of the Damned selling like crap or Just Dance 2's huge sales. But some just brighten our days, even when it involves an especially melancholy title like Limbo. Today the creators of Limbo revealed the enigmatic indie game has sold over a million copies to date, a number that will hopefully continue to grow when it comes out for the Mac.

We fell in love with Limbo when it first launched on July 21 last year for XBLA. Since then it’s also appeared on PC and PS3, so just about everyone can enjoy the tragic tale of a lost little boy’s dangerous search for his sister. The haunting game doesn’t look like something that would be a massive hit, making this sales milestone a very pleasant surprise.

As part of the announcement Dino Patti, CEO of Limbo dev Playdead, announced the title would be coming to another platform soon, this time on the Mac. The Apple-based release is planned for the end of the year. But enough with porting Limbo, when will Playdead announce their next game?
