That's pretty impressive. I wonder how many people came to the site but never downloaded any games.

Wow, very impressive!! I'm surprised you guys don't bundle little demos for your other titles in each of your individual ADGI downloads. Maybe you could also flash your website address ("if you like this game, check out our other titles...") at the start of each game and whenever players quit the game. A little obscure link at the bottom of the small launcher window is not going to cut it. These games are free, after all, so your biggest benefit from them is increased publicity... you might as well do whatever you can to drive as much traffic as possible to your snazzy new website. Even though many players likely downloaded the game through a link on the official ADGI site, aren't there probably a lot who found it through links like this one? http://www.bigdownload.com/games/quest-for-glory-2-trial-by-fire-remake/pc/quest-for-glory-ii-trial-by-fire-remake-full-game/

Just seems like you could do a lot more to market yourself (if only as AGDI, not Himalaya) in the product itself. When you have over 80,000 downloads for one game (and maybe more than that if you count downloads from other sites), you better be darn sure that all those people running the program know who you are and that you guys offer several other titles. Don't waste a lot of good marketing opportunities!

Man, AGDI's darn lucky to have you show up around here and tell them how to do things, because it's obviously not working at all.

I'm sure the AGDI developers are mature enough and have thick enough skin to be able to at least appreciate input from fans and customers who only want to seem them continue to succeed, and my guess is they welcome feedback and don't necessarily see it as people telling them what to do.

Actually, I don't know if those numbers take into account all the different versions of KQ1, KQ2+ and QFG2VGA that have been released.

For QFG2VGA, I think it's all versions, for the KQ remakes, only the recent enhanced updates.

Wow! I wouldn't have thought it turned out to be such a success. Kinda make me feel ashamed I haven't played it yet. But I'm getting to it, you'll see... 8))
