Gone Home sells 50,000 copies

Time for an upgrade.

Gone Home has sold 50,000 copies, developer The Fullbright Company has announced.

The indie game was released on 15th August 2013, so the 50,000 figure, which collates sales on Steam and Fullbright's website, was achieved in under a month.

"We're now almost a month out since launching on August 15, and we hope people will find it encouraging to know that, along with the positive critical response we are continually grateful for and humbled by, we are also doing alright as far as sales numbers go!" Fullbright co-founder Steve Gaynor wrote on the company's website.

First-person mystery game Gone Home costs £15 on Steam in the UK, or $20 on the Gone Home website.
