Firewatch is one of 2016’s independent delights, interestingly this stunning character driven experience has amassed a decent amount in terms of sales cemented it as a great start for the year.

The publisher of Firewatch Panic Inc. has today announced that the game has sold around 500,000 copies since it debuted on February 9th.

Talking about it in a blog post, Panic has stated that the game was a “huge” investment for the publisher. However strong sales on day one alone helped them make their money back in about a day, from here everything was just profit.

This is pretty impressive and really shows how deep this game truly is and how important it is for games of its type.
