February’s first Xbox One Game with Gold, the surprising smash-hit #IDARB from developer Other Ocean, has been downloaded a whopping 1 million times within its first week.
Although it’s free, the milestone is impressive for any downloadable game, especially a brand new IP – and one that has dedicated so much of its development to its audience. Mike Mika took to Twitter to announce the news:
Over one million downloads of #IDARB in the first week. Thanks everybody! Super Bowl sunday, you played over 16 years worth in a single day.

#IDARB is an incredibly fun game for online or local play, and one that cleverly integrates Twitter and Twitch into its gameplay. I highly recommend checking it out – and when it’s free, what do you have to lose?
On a more sombre note, players have been using its ingenious social media integration for slandering and abusing other players, as well as spouting downright irrelevant and offensive comments. You can read about it in more detail here.
Mika also revealed that the studio will have news on a PC port of #IDARB at GDC in early March.
