Pricey Esther turned a revenue in simply 5 hours, half-hour

Dear Esther turned a profit in just 5 hours, 30 minutes

Final yr Indie Fund voted to help Pricey Esther, a rebuild of the favored Half-Life 2 mod, and it gave developer thechineseroom $fifty five,000 in a single lump sum. Indie Fund had its reservations: In an e mail to thechineseroom’s Dan Pinchbeck earlier than handing over the cash, Indie Fund stated the Steam viewers might not perceive Pricey Esther and it proposed a launch on PSN as an alternative. This did not occur, and fortunately so.

Pricey Esther recouped Indie Fund’s $fifty five,000 funding yesterday in simply 5 hours and half-hour, promoting sixteen,000 copies and turning into the highest-promoting title on Steam for all the day. This implies all of the gross sales now are going on to thechineseroom, whether or not to fund one other recreation, add to this one or take a workforce-constructing sky-diving journey, we’ll have to attend and see.
