Gone Home has sold over 50,000 copies so far

Thursday, 12th September 2013 12:26 GMT By Dave Cook

Gone Home developer The Fullbright Company has announced that its Steam release has generated more than 50,000 sales since it launched on August 15.

The game is currently selling for £14.99/$19.99 on Steam and £20 over on the official site.

It casts you as a person who has just returned from a year abroad. You enter your family home and expect your loved ones to greet you with open arms, except they’ve all disappeared. It’s very mysterious and a novel concept to boot.

Fullbright co-founder Steve Gaynor issued a statement on the sales figures over on the Gone Home site which read, “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!”

Have you played Gone Home yet? Let us know what you think.

    One of the best indies to come out this year…along with Brothers:A Tale of Two Sons.

    That’s really quite low for a Steam indie. But then I guess the price was also double of what the others are.

    I’m ashamed to say I haven’t finished it yet. You really want to sit down with it and just relax and not think about anything else.

    Pretty much what I did; was a suitably rainy day and I loaded Gone Home up with a nice scotch and played it straight through in about five hours. Only missed one journal so really did explore everything. Was an amazing game and story/experience. Nice break and change of pace from our normal gaming fare.

    Yep. I have no small amount of love for Gone Home, because it was quite the clever little thing. I just wish it had been better received by the whole. There’s a whole lot of misogyny and homophobia lying within the bowels of our little hobby, it seems. Don’t view the Steam forums if you value your sanity.

    But, to me, it really is something of a metric of the quality of a person. I think at this point I have a game that I can have someone play, and judge by their reactions whether I’ll like that person as a person or not.
