PC Building Simulator shifts 100,000 units in first month

Steam title PC Building Simulator has done rather well for itself since launching into Early Access.

Developer The Irregular Corporation says that the indie title has sold more than 100,000 copies in its first month on Steam's alpha scheme.

The studio says that the game's performance thus far has motivated it to roll out continuous updates for the title, which is now set to leave Early Access at some point this year.

“The overwhelming support we have had from the PC gaming and building community has been nothing short of phenomenal and we are extremely grateful to all the players who have been so passionately providing feedback, this is the whole reason we wanted to launch into Early Access," producer Stuart Morton said.

"There are plenty of new and exciting things to come for PC Building Simulator and we can’t wait to share them with our ever-expanding community.”

PC Building Simulator does more or less what it says on the tin, letting users construct a rig using hardware from the likes of MSI, Corsair, Cooler Master and Evga.

The title started out as a demo on Itch.io, and was the third-most-downloaded title on that particular platform in 2017.
