It's always a feel good story when indie games find commercial success. Dear Esther writer Dan Pinchbeck says the developer sold 250,000 copies of the game to date.

The studio notes on its blog the recent 50 percent off Steam sale boosted sales immensely. They sold 118,000 copies in just 48 hours. Dear Esther became profitable in its first six hours when going on sale back in February.
