I'm a billionaire now!
« on: September 28, 2009, 04:08:34 PM »
Well, according to my web store, anyway.

Over the weekend I've been giving The Shivah away for free in honor of the Yom Kippur holiday. Lots and lots of people have been taking advantage of the offer, but I think the increase in traffic has knocked the accounting system a bit out of whack.

For a free game, it's sure raking in the dough! 

Sooo this is probably a mistake.  Either that, or I'm buying a villa in the south of France.

Yep, that was me. Glad you liked the review. :)

There are also a lot of questions cropping up in the forum thread over at Gamezebo. Some of the casual gamers over there are probably not used to the old-style adventure games like that. You may want to consider popping over to that thread to introduce yourself/answer some of the questions (if you have time). The forum users over there REALLY like it when devs show up and chat with them. It's also a very nice and mature forum. I've never seen anyone flamed over there.

Congratulations! :D That is wonderful to see. So proud of you since I watched you start up your game company from this side of the internet :).

Is it the per click per user that brings the dough in?

Oh, I never updated this thread!  This whole thing was a bug on the server end.  During the "free shivah" sale, the store was registering all the free orders as actual sales, and some jokers decided to order several million free copies of the game, which kind of made things go a little haywire!  Hence the crazy sales report.  Still, for a nice split second it was nice to think I became a billionaire!
