Lonely Mountains: Downhill

Thunderful have announced that Lonely Mountains: Downhill has now sold “well over 800 000 units” since launch, on all platforms combined: the 1 million units milestone is in sight! As always, no regional or platform breakdown is provided, but considering the Nintendo Switch version came out pretty recently, and many months after the other platforms, it most likely account only for a small portion of those sales.
