Dear Esther exceeds 750K copies with Humble Bundle sales

The latest Humble Bundle has helped the experimental first-person adventure Dear Esther soar past 750,000 units in sales.

"We always said we'd be delighted with 20,000 sales, so this number means a lot to us as do as all the wonderful emails and tweets," tweeted Jessica Curry, the co-director of studio Thechineseroom, which developed the game.

"Thank you so much to everyone for the support," she wrote. "Amazing."

Humble Bundle 8, which also includes indie titles like Little Inferno and Thomas Was Alone, lasts for roughly four more days. Over 400,000 bundles have been sold so far, with over $2 million raised in funds. Once more, Markus "Notch" Persson — the creator of Minecraft — is the top contributor.
