on November 3, 2008 - 1954 Views

Earlier today YoYo Games passed the 25,000 games threshold as maze game Treasure Remix became the 25,001st GameMaker application to be uploaded to the site.

The Games on YoYo have collectively been played more than 5,100,000 times, an average of over 200 plays per game. However the distribution of plays per game is far from equal with the most played game, Crimelife 2, accounting for almost 2.5% of the total plays across the site.

Uneven distribution of plays

Despite CrimeLife 2 having received almost 125,000 plays, by far the vast majority of games on the site (70%+) have received fewer than 99 plays. The table below shows the number of games which have been played on a number of occasions within the stated range.

    Some good points here. I do have to agree, some games just get uploaded, and sometimes NEVER played!

    Sad really, that developers put in time and effort into there creations and they never get played, although it’s up to the developer to get the games seen.

    The number of plays is listed for every game on the YYG website. I just sorted all games by total number of plays.

    Oooh, the numbers when sorted would be the cumulative, gotcha
