BYOND's site change: Original Games Strike Back in Off Topic
The talk about Shadows of Erdrick isn't a good topic with me as it is NOT my game.
Dragon Warrior Online stays true to it's roots and is a well designed game (remember that game Silk, you started much of your fame on byond with a fangame).
lets say the anime kiddies stay on byond and they come to your game, is that still earning them?
I just realize that if I'm going to play adventure games like Nestalgia...I'm going to find it in 3-D...that's why anime is great for byond...no one hardly wants to play 2-D games unless its something familiar...
Even if that number never changes after I start to market the game outside BYOND, I still earned every last player in NEStalgia. There isn't a single anime game on BYOND that earned its players: take away the title and you'd see zeros next to all of them, because the games themselves are embarrassingly bad.
Let's not forget you are using the NES title to help garner players, too. But it would be wrong to discredit your hard work based on that, right?
However, I wouldn't mind hearing how this could help original developers. I'm not entirely convinced at the moment. Has NEStalgia seen an increase in players ever since the changes were introduced?
