Top-tier deckbuilder Balatro hits 1 million sales in less than a month, which hopefully justifies all the hours we’ve collectively lost to it

I don’t like poker, but I love Balatro—and I mean, hey, I’ve at least got that in common with its creator (though I’ve played considerably more deckbuilders than they have). It’s pretty astounding that someone with zero experience in almost anything their game is about could make such a banger, but here we are. 

A few weeks after its release, almost everyone on the PC Gamer team has an embarrassing amount of hours logged into this thing. My attention has been split almost evenly between Balatro and Helldivers 2, the latter of which has completely shaken up the landscape of live-service shooters, which gives some indication of the former’s quality.
