A conclusion: each shape that is coloured the graph represents a platform. The horizontal axis is time. The axis that is vertical the number of games released. So that the height of a form on a given time indicates the number of games released for that platform that year. The total height for the graph on a given stage shows the full total releases that year. The graph is meant to represent game releases and therefore excludes DLC, Special Edition and Compilation items. Each game is included by it for every platform it absolutely was released on. As usual we see a drop-off at the end, due to the fact we now haven’t had the opportunity to keep up with all the current game that is new. Take a moment to indicate interesting info in the graph and your contributions into the thread!
Special thanks to Kayburt in making fast work regarding the V.Flash goal! We have now every one of its games listed, though nevertheless looking for credits, covers and screenshots to fill them away.
Next up, a goal that is big achieve 5,000 web browser games. Having an increased exposure of games manufactured in flash, as Adobe is deprecating that on December 31st. Then it’ll be more difficult to document flash games as third party plugins will have to be set up, and flash portals are more likely to turn off.
Suggested sources: Kongregate, Armor Games, Not Doppler. Newgrounds is also good, though they’ve their own plugin much less likely to disappear completely.
Many Thanks in advance to all or any contributors, and let us observe how quickly we could get to 5k!
Thanks to everybody else whom aided achieve our objective of documenting 2,800 Arcade games! Which was a huge one. Whew.
Along with that we’re throwing down a goal that is new. A much smaller one, for a platform called V.Flash – a educational video game system that just had 10 games released.
