We doubled our registered users in March!

March 27th, 2010

March goal: double registered users: MET

March goal: double registered users: MET


March has been a record month for us. Last month, we challenged our players to help us double our registered user number. We knew it was not going to be easy, since registration is completely optional. But hey, a challenge is supposed to be challenging! We are happy to report that as of 9:00 AM EST, we have met our goal–and we have four days to spare! Thanks if you participated in the record number of registrations on Friday–It was our best day yet for new users!

Thanks for all of you who used the new “share” tool at the top of the screen to send Game Wasteland to Twitter, Facebook, Digg, and any of the other sources to help. If you haven’t tried it, give it a whirl, it’s right next to the boss key.

Thanks again, as always, and remember to play on!

Web games among top search terms on the internet

March 17th, 2010

Kid 1: Is our internet back up yet? Kid 2: Nope, guess we have to compromise...

Kid 1: Is our internet back up yet? Kid 2: Nope, guess we have to compromise...


BBG, or Browser Based Games, commonly known as flash games, web games, or online games, have proven to be a huge trend in internet searches since the dawn of the world wide web. Norton (known for their anti-virus software) released a list of most commonly searched terms, and searches for flash games dominated, with 3 related terms in the top 20. While the web game industry is still a relatively unknown and under-researched market sector, it has quickly become dominant, broadly surpassing console gaming. I mean the XBOX360, PS3, and Wii aren’t even in the top 100 search terms! At Game Wasteland alone, the median time spent on the site per day is 30 minutes! Why are they so popular? Well, for one thing they are generally free. They are also convenient and discrete: Your mom/boss/girlfriend/wife will probably take notice if you are jumping up and down with your Wii remote in the living room. But play on your computer screen and quick loading flash games are easy to hide and you look like you’re doing something legitimate. Long story short, thanks and keep playing!

That explains a lot of the popularity of GameWasteland.com. Come play with us!
