I have just realized two things:
a) Jay Is Games wrote about The Infinite Ocean, which explains the sudden influx of people during the summer.
b) My games, with the exception of The Great Machine, don’t run on most Vista systems. Now, I despise Vista, so it’s not the end of the world, but it really does suck for people who have no other choice and would like to play the games. So I am considering possible workarounds, and will post any results here.
And now I have to go let the cat out, because she’s going craaaazy.
