'Bellwright' Sales Surpass 200k Steam Early Access Copies

Bellwright is an immersive single-player and co-op adventure and survival experience that will bring the thrill of medieval revolution and conquest.

Bellwright is an enthralling story in a captivating time, giving players the opportunity to establish settlements and uncover mysteries as they conquer the kingdom.

In Bellwright, players go into hiding after being framed for the murder of the Prince and being sentenced to death by the Crown. Following a narrow escape from an attempt on their life, players find the assassin's contract that raises many questions - was it just misfortune that they were framed? Or is there something more sinister going on? Determined to find the answers, players journey back to the very place you escaped. Players experience the world of Bellwright as they lead a rebellion against their homeland's oppressive Sovereign to victory, uncovering the truth of their family's secret along the way. 

Establish and expand your own settlements, liberate the land and assist its villagers, and recruit others to your cause while learning more about a life you had to leave behind. Your recruits will help you build up the resources and might needed for a stand against the Crown. Command your forces, prove your valor through combat, and cement yourself as the hero of your people.

Developer Donkey Crew and publisher Snail, Inc. are thrilled to announce the successful Steam Early Access launch of Bellwright.

The town-building survival RPG has sold more than 200,000 units on Steam, and more than doubled its wishlists since launch to 822,628, highlighting Bellwright’s growing popularity amongst the Steam gaming community. Bellwright's rapid growth also extends beyond Steam, amassing over 975,000 hours watched on Twitch. 

Bellwright's dedicated community and wealth of content available in its Early Access launch resulted in a higher than expected level of player retention on Steam's competitive landscape. With concurrent users consistently exceeding its launch day peak, and a significant portion of players investing over 20 hours into the game, Bellwright has evidently captured the players it has reached so far. This trend is expected to continue as players delve deeper into Bellwright's large tech tree and expansive Early Access map. 

"The amount of support and enthusiasm from players has been a wonderful surprise for our team so soon after release. As we're gathering feedback and discussing potential features with the community in preparation for our first content update, we have some exciting news on the way about the future of Bellwright and what's coming next" – Florian “chadz” Hofreither, Project Lead at Donkey Crew.
