Scum Sells Over 1 Million Copies in Three Weeks

Celebrate with a new golden gun.

Scum, a survival game where players are escaped prisoners on a deadly island, has now sold over a million units in three weeks. Scum is already Devolver Digital's biggest game launch ever, and it looks like it's going strong.

To thank players and celebrate the achievement Scum developers are releasing a gold Desert Eagle .50. Players will have until September 25 to claim this reward. Support Pack owners can also expect a "Nice Watch" watch accessory. Devolver is promising "more useful features" added to the watch in the future. In the meantime, at least, you can accessorize your character's wrists.

Scum is a survival game at its most extreme. Players must manage their health, hunger, stamina, and numerous other stats in order stay alive. Your body basically becomes a very intense management sim. If you're curious about Scum you can read our impressions here.
