Descenders developer Mike Rose is again gushing about the effect that joining the Xbox Game Pass has had on his game's success. In a Twitter thread, Rose said that the physics-based cycling game has become the eighth most popular game on the subscription service and that sales have tripled since it landed there. Last week marked a five-fold increase in sales of the game compared to the week before Descenders joined Game Pass' rotating list of titles.

Rose said he's just signed a new deal to keep Descenders on the service "for a looong time to come" and that his team is continuing to add new free content to the game.
