Why is no one playing Oxono anymore...?

Post by bossas »

It used to be that you could get a game in a few seconds, but nowadays it seems to be 15 mins+ (if you can be bothered to wait that long...)

Is that the normal pattern with new games?

I'm afraid so. There may be a short increase in popularity when a game first appears in beta, or when it's officially released, but after a while those who were looking for new games will find a different one and the game will be lost in the wide sea of available games.

Guess I'd better make some friends who enjoy it as much as I do ;)

Being on the front page when released is kinda like an ad. Once it falls off the first page, unless it's something like Ark Nova or Terraforming Mars, it fades into obscurity.

A similar thing happened with the abstract game "Insert" (now "Donuts"). Now you pretty much have to play it turn-based if you want to play at all.
