The indie game darling Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King sprouted on the Nintendo eShop back in December, and in the past eight months it has grown beyond its Steam sales numbers “by a factor of 20” according to the game’s publisher FDG Entertainment. In a tweet shared this past Monday, FDG thanked supporters of Blossom Tales across all gaming platforms while naming the Nintendo community as “a turnaround” for the game.
