Initial Response To “Great Game”

by Tass on May.15, 2010, under Flash, Game, game design, Personal, Walkthrough

So, the initial response to the game has been quite divided, which is what we expected.  There are those who think it’s funny and like it and those who don’t and don’t.  Very, very little middle ground.  As a result, it did ok on Kong (and got a pity badge from Greg), but has seen very little early pickup from distribution.  More on that aspect of the game’s success will be known in a week or two.

What interests me so much is that the walkthrough has been viewed over 21,000 times.  It’s not like the game is hard, at all.  Not even remotely.  Yet 21,000 views.  I’m quite shocked by this, and don’t really know what to attribute it to.   I understand that there have been 74,000 clicks on the walkthrough link…  but that makes a bit more sense, given there is an achievement for it; but for 30% of those clickers to view it?  Either they really like me or they are dumber than I thought.  Not sure which is better.

    Actually, most of people who were trying to find hidden achievements pressed “WALKTHROUGH” more than once. I, for example, pressed it 5 times in main menu and 5 times in gameplay, just to check for possible achievements. And I never even watch the video. ;]

    Regardless the response it got, I thought it was a nifty idea. Keep that brain of yours working and come up with another witty game.

    Or maybe they’re trying to figure out if the game is really this shallow.
