Even more evidence that the market is starving for some non-game content! Wink

Hurrah. Well done Dan et al. I'm hoping to find some time to play this in the next week or so.

Interestingly (for me at least) one of my friends, who I don't think really follows indie games, out of the blue mentioned Dear Esther a few days ago. That and the high sales makes me think that it has permeated the mainstream to some extent.

This is great news!

But just to add a little perspective: profitable here means that Indie Fund got its money back. I don't think this sum would cover the wages that all the people involved should have received if they were not driven by love. Anyway, I have no doubt that this amount will also be reached, if it hasn't already.

So now, making art games is profitable? What a strange world we live in. Cheesy

Today it is reviewed in the Swedish newspaper SvD.
High score. Praised for its beauty and mood, not leat the music.
