It has been over a week that 0.6.0 has been released. And although I did expect it to have somewhat more attention than the previous release… what happened the past week just blew my mind and I wanted to share this with you.
As it is you (the visitor, the player who tried and played D2TM, etc) I have to thank for the past 10 days… so without getting into details, let me start by saying thank you!
So what happened…?
A little bit of context first.
Ever since 0.5.0 has been released, the amount of visitors on this website averaged between 5 to 15 (20 at most) a day. The amount of downloads 0.5.0 had was around 271 when 0.6.0 got released. It took 9 months to get to that many downloads.
The amount of Discord users were around 20-30 people.
I had ~ 480-ish followers on Twitter
September 10th: 0.6.0 has been released
And a few days later an article got published on GeekCulture.co… well that blew up for sure!
It is now 10 days later, and the stats are as follows:
- 0.6.0 got downloaded over 1600 times (!!!)
- The website had at its peak 4156 visitors on one day (with 2116 unique visitors)
- Discord members grew to around 130
- D2TM got streamed twice already – which was awesome to watch
- On twitter there are now 636 followers! (a growth of 150+ members in 10 days)
- The Youtube channel grew from 20+ to 60+ subscribers
Especially the visitors on the site made my graph look like this:
And at Github:
All that combined that it happened within such a short timespan made it unbelievable.
I thank the interview at GeekCulture.co for this and the spread it got via other mediums.
Who knows what follows?
Regardless, I wish to thank you for the past 10 days. I will never forget that.
In case you wonder which articles mention D2TM I have started collecting some links and share them on this page.
What about a next version?
I loved watching the stats move… but I also did some work for the next version already. More on that in a next blog post!
