You can vote for 2 kind of games : Indie space or Turn based isometric.

Show your love to TLF by voting for Indie space :)

Thank you for posting this!  I was just about here to come and do this myself.  If you haven't had a chance to play FTL yet, then that's another awesome one that's in the same package as TLF.  I haven't played the other two yet, but I've heard good things.  Fingers crossed, this would be huge for us! :)

I strongly expect that TLF's group will win. That it's paired with FTL (even though that's already been on sale once or twice) will probably be enough, and it's a popular enough game in its own right. The other games seem decent as well. The other category seems good, but its games aren't quite as popular I think.
I can already tell this is going to be a roller coaster ride of disappointment.

Looks like the space set won :D

I was rather expecting it the other way around, simply because things I keep voting for keep not being picked.  Clearly there is a conspiracy.

Whew, I'm really relieved! I thought our side looked stronger as well, but the other side was no slouch by any stretch. I have had a really bad run of picking the wrong side in all these votes this sale, too, Misery. :)

I've had the exact opposite luck--every single one I've voted for has won except for the utility round, which I had no knowledge of. Still, Space only won with 55% of the vote, so that's surprisingly close.

Looks like you're back in the top sellers again  :)
Did you manage to break even yet with TLF? I remember that it'd got most of the way there, but that was as the initial burst was wearing off and I can't remember hearing anything along those lines since (may have not been paying attention).

We did indeed break even during this particular flash sale. :)  We had been quite close already, and this pushed us to about 120% of break-even on the base game.  Actually we had already barely passed the break-even point prior to this, it turns out, but this pushed us into a respectable degree of profitability for being 10 weeks out. :)

Do you really mean to say that that one flash sale got you a fifth of the revenue you had previously taken in for TLF since release?
Furthermore, it is my opinion that Hari must be destroyed.

Thank you very much!

And in terms of the one 8-hour flash sale, no, it was only 12% of our revenue since release.  Still a metric ton, but that's the way of it for sales like that.  AI War has earned about $1.3 million total now (last I checked), and only about $80k of that was in 2009, when it came out.  The overall average per year with that game has been more like $200k.  After 10 weeks, TLF is very close to passing $500k.
