44 by the numbers

It’s been three months since I released 44: A Game of Automatic Fear for free.

I’m pleased with the reaction so far. People played the game within a week of its release. I expect more will happen as time goes on.

Traffic to the 44 blog has been relatively steady, with the usual and expected initial release spike.

  • Page views were about 3,000 since October.
  • About 1,700 people visited the site (including this “main” blog). Slightly more than I would have guessed.
  • 366 people registered to my blog. Some percentage are certainly spam. But, nice!
  • I estimate around 250 PDF downloads, perhaps more.
  • There was notable activity from several countries, including the UK,  Italy, Spain, Poland and others.

Meanwhile, I’ve been pretty quiet and enjoying it. For one, I read most of the Pathfinder book, which was a hot and cold experience.

I’ve been thinking a lot about publishing and desiging RPGs, the indie scene, business and marketing. I have far more questions than answers, more problems than solutions. Still trying to figure out where and how to go from here.
