Today, farmfortress.com has been updated to show live purchase stats!
I don’t really know how and if this will affect anything, but I do know one thing: The only site/game/business I’ve ever seen doing this is Minecraft.
Markus has had units sold on display on the site for years, even before he was a millionaire. Initially, he presented the total number of purchases, but as the game grew in popularity he started having a 24h rolling window of sales instead. Now I just think it’s slightly disgusting that those figures still are going up, and that one day worth of sales would power this project with me and Dave full time for well over a year :D
But I can’t really see the harm in being open with these numbers. Let’s just see if anything happens.
