After its first week on the web, Marble Maze had 357 views, 290 plays/downloads, and 11 comments on GameJolt.com, 72 gameplays on Kongregate.com, and 15 downloads on IndieDB.com. Being that this is my first time working with these various sites, I think that GameJolt was the best platform to use because of their very active community, and great developer tools. I plan on messing around with GameJolt's API in the future to possibly incorporate some of it's features into this game and future games I plan to release on the platform.
Special Thanks to my brother Jared and my cousin Sammy for testing, D&M Games and MySecretWeapon on GameJolt, bonvivantone and Givvy on Kongregate, SamFisherRF on IndieDB, and Project Sash on YouTube for all your feedback and support of this game.
