11,000 games sold so far ...

Gallery snapshot. View gallery of 11,000 games sold so far ...

We meant to post this after we sold 10,000, but we forgot, so we thought, sod it, eleven is as good as ten, if not better. One better. We'll just wait until we pass the eleven boundary. Why be slaves to the decimal system anyway?

And then we passed 11,000 and still forgot. So here it is, a glorious celebration post to commemorate 11,763 games, or something like that ... Whew! It's been quite a ride.

Naturally, we're really chuffed with how well War on Terror has done. For a first, independent release, this is phenomenal news and we have to thank each and every one of you for buying the game, being so supportive, spreading the word and generally recognising what it is we're trying to do. In fact, some of you seem to understand better than we do. Thank you. Without you, obviously, we couldn't achieve what we have - so the Playboy endorsement and the New Internationalist review, the appearance on the IT Crowd, the Imperial War Museum, the V&A, the ICA, the WoT tournament in L.A. and more ... all these successes are yours too; you helped carry it this far.

Thanks each and every one of you for buying the game, being so supportive, spreading the word and recognising the game for what it is Of course, we've had our fair share of problems too, as followers of this blog will know only too well. We'd like to report that these troubles are behind us, but far from it. We're still prevented from reaching the mass market in any way, the result being that we can never generate the level of sales we need in order to move TerrorBull Games forwards and publish the many games we have in various stages of development.

So the fight continues. It's a long war, as we've pointed out many times and there'll be a press release soon, exploring this aspect in more detail. In the meantime, we've written a press release that celebrates hitting the significant 10,000 figure and reflecting back on a year of War on Terror. Enjoy!

  1. Cngratulations on 11,763 games sold. Perhaps you could mark this momentous occasion by bringing out a Moroccan version of the game. According to the board Algeria has taken over Morocco. This is completely unacceptable to my wife who refuses to play the game until I have put a sticker over the offending name to change it to Morocco.Max from Casablanca - 19 May 2008
