The Future of EARLSGAMES

The Question is: "Does EARLSGAMES even have a future?"

I've made a number of Flash games to date, some good, some not so good... my earlier games would have been a good addition to the list, but because of that PC crash... tsk tsk. This hobby of mine is not only financially rewarding but it gives you a great feeling when you hear people comment about them. Of course, there are good and bad, but you can't please them all. I found that most westerners prefer action and adventure games, only a handfull are really interested in puzzle or simple arcade games, which because of limited time and resources, are the only games i can make so far. But still, i find it rewarding just to hear why people like them:

I've received at least 20 emails regarding The Shell Game. Most of them wanted to add it to their website, some wanted to use the code for their own projects, and a few just wanted to say how they enjoyed playing it.

The Holy Cow on the other hand, though not that "scattered" compared with The Shell Game, has acquired it's own spot in the Flash Gaming Community. A number of people started playing it, then it's popularity grew through word-of-mouth. It was once ranked TOP 3 in New Arcade Entries in, considering the number of Flash Games being made everyday (believe me, it's that plenty) i'd say that's quite an achievement. To date, more that 70,000 people from all over the world have played it.

The same goes for The Shell Game - Xtreme, Gate Gears, and Gate Gears Deluxe, Overrun, Tic-Tac-Toe Levels, and my first online multiplayer games: Cards, Never mind When Submarines Attack, The Mind Reading Chicken, or my very first Flash game: Snake. With the growing number of people able to view Flash movies, the future of Flash-- websites, applications, games, or otherwise, looks brighter than ever before.

So the Question is: "Does EARLSGAMES even have a future?" ...yeah, i'd like to think so. =D
