Congratulations to Bang! Howdy! Three Rings' second game has successfully started advertising on a number of websites and jumped in population to an average of 2,000 users online per day. The number of people downloading the client has increased so dramatically that, in the words of Calrissian, our lead infrastructure engineer, "It's kicking the [barnacle] out of our download server."
As of last week, we were averaging 3.6 gigabytes of data per minute, which is nearly a DVD every 60 seconds. And today, we found that we are on the front page of download.com. To preserve the moment, I took a screencap.
It's not the only good news; some of you game industry enthusiasts may have noticed that Three Rings founders Cleaver (Daniel James) and One-Eyed Jack (Michael Bayne) are scheduled to give a talk at the 2007 Game Developers Conference about our latest project which is currently codenamed MetaSOY, in March. Is it science? Is it magic? Finally, we find out what it is!
Three Rings will be at the Game Developers Conference, since Bang! Howdy is up for one of the Independent Games Awards. I'll hopefully be there, taking pictures and posting away. See ye there, mates!
