I bought four, so I assume there's only 12,500 purchasers.

Gorgeous first-person adventure Gone Home has made it to 50,000 sales, developer The Fullbright Company has announced.
“We’re happy to announce that between Steam and our own website Gone Home has sold more than 50,000 copies since launch. 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.
Gone Home casts players as a young woman returning from a year’s holiday in Europe. In her absence, her family has moved to a mansion in the woods, but when she arrives, after midnight, she finds nobody home. It’s received rave reviews, but it’s exceptionally easy to spoil so we’ll all just be quiet immediately. You can grab it on Steam or directly from the developer for USD$19.99 – it’s available on PC, Mac and Linux.
The Fullbright Company was founded by three former members of 2K; the team’s past credits include Bioshock 2, Bioshock Infinite and XCOM: Enemy Unknown. It set out to make non-violent, non-fantasy games driven by story but informed by game techniques, as opposed to being cinematically-inspired.
