No More NoMoreSweden

No More Sweden is over & I am back in Vienna.

My entry to the 40h dev jam even won the 1st place in the "Most Procedural" category!

I will use some of the code to remake three old projects (finally finishing 1 of them & adding some polish to the other two) with a unified framework.

That will make them easily accessible through web start, with some new eye candy & an online scoreboard. More features will probably follow.

Roguelike Traffic

It has been a bit over a year since I started tracking traffic to the first 7DRL I made for the 2008 7DRL Challange (I have since then also submitted another game to this year's challange).

It seems most of the traffic comes from Roguelike specific site such as RogueBasin and Temple of the Roguelike, but popular gaming sites such as Jay is Games also contributed their fair share of traffic.

Here are the top 10 refferes:

Overall visitors numbered 4,348.

The number of downloads of the most recent edition (not including people who got it directly from the subversion repository or downladed any of the previous versions):

I unfortunatly didn't have a mac to compile/test on - the mac version without sounds was contributed by a player.

Overall downloads (including old versions but not including subversion checkouts or downloads from 3rd party sites) numbered 2,451.

Operating system stats are also not surprising - considering I couldn't provide very good mac support - with Windows taking the lead followed by linux:

Would be interesting to see how my newer (and upcoming) games would do in comparison. With my 2nd 7DRL game released about 4 months ago, there is still a while left until they could be compared, though.


1 Week for NoMoreSweden

Only 1 week left 'till I hop on a plane to Copenhagen (and a train to Malmö afterwards) to attend NoMoreSweden.

38 people registered, many of which I would be very interested in meeting.

Fun times ahead!
