Bang! You're downloaded.

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!

I've been waiting for that talk, if only because it'll finally give us some info on what MetaSOY will be about. Tasty!

I'm pretty sure I saw a new post in the blog the other day. A day in Hypnos life of or something like that. It included among other things a picture of a nap place, and Hypnos promised to hurt anyone else using it.

Was that just something I imagined?

No, I'm pretty sure I remember a post like that as well. I posted a comment on it. Unless I imagined both the posty and the comment...and the video and picture...

You may get a glance at these footwear by some photographs demonstrated below. It is explained the name of such footwear is inspired by Kanye West' nickname, and the blend of Nike variations with modern Nike's improvements may be discovered during the planning of these shoesSeeing these shoes carefully, these Nike Air Yeezy 2 Wolf Grey sneakers have some original characteristics which are worthwhile customers' favor. One example is, entire grain leather uppers, ankle collar pods for more protection, a Nike Air Yeezy 2 Price help strap and Phylon tooling taken from your 1987 Air Assault.http://www.nike-airyeezy2.com/
