The Kiwi's TaleWitchBlasterDerelict Blow Stuff Up

Earok.Net's sudden unexpected popularity

Well, this month has been interesting.

For the first time ever, I breached my monthly bandwidth allocation for Earok.Net, and had to buy more. Here is my monthly bandwidth usage for every month since the site began:


August 2008 - 2.32GB

September 2008 - 2.20GB

October 2008 - 2.82GB

November 2008 - 1.76GB

December 2008 - 1.93GB

January 2009 - 4.58 GB

February 2009 (So far) - 30.37 GB

I'm very flattered that quite a few people are downloading games from here - collectively, the Kiwi's Tale and Derelict have had over 1000 downloads this month from this site alone, and even my experimental titles (Heart of Ice and Blow Stuff Up) have had 30 downloads each. The games are being downloaded in the US, UK, Germany, Italy, Romania, Czech Republic, Brazil, Croatia, Bosnia and quite a few other places (I need to work on localisation!). 

However, it would be really cool if someone could provide me a temporary mirror for Derelict and the Kiwi's Tale until this whole thing blows over, otherwise I'll probably need to buy yet more bandwidth by the end of the week. If you can help, please leave leave a comment or send me a message through the contact form.

Thanks to everyone for playing my games.

Could provide a mirror from my site, though not sure how to set it up so you might need to talk me though it. Congrats on all the downloads, that's awesome! :)

Have you thought about spreading it by the way of torrents?

I haven't really considered it, I don't think I have quite enough support to get enough seeds to create good torrents of my games, and even so the games are relatively small and a few people have offered mirrors.

It is an intriguing idea though, thanks for suggesting it.
