Found it!

Figured it out...

I was wondering what caused this latest spike in sales.  Turns out someone posted a favorable review on Reddit, which got a little traction and generated some sales.  Pretty neat.  It was really killing me to know that there was something out there, but I didn't know what it was.  Pretty cool.

Sales Data

Hidden in Plain Sight is closing in on 1000 sales.

I think the sales graph is pretty nifty.  There's a nice little bump where the Joystiq Indie Pitch article hit.

Also note that the sales seem to be progressing pretty linearly. 

Contrast this with Bad Golf's sales over the first three months:

Very different curves, neh?  I'm not sure what it means, but it's interesting.

More fan email...

I just noticed I had a Facebook message waiting from a few days ago from a random woman.  Almost sure it was spam, I hesitantly opened it.  Best email ever!

Mr. Adam Spragg,

It is a rarity that I would feel so compelled to send this message. Just to make sure you know right off that this is not a weird message, let me start by saying how big of a fan I am of Bad Golf. Seriously a huge fan. I have showed it to all of my friends and have yet to find a person who is not throughly entertained (although frustrated) by playing this game.

As I often download indie games, I recently downloaded another treasure called Hidden in Plain Sight. It is a delight! I have found that our favorite is the death race. Due to the way in which you sign into the game, it appeared that the creator of hidden in plain sight was also the creator of bad golf. With a little lite research, I found your name.

This message has two purposes. One of which is to let you know personally that your games are enjoyed and to please keep up the great work. The second is to see if you have any plans to make it so these games can be played with others online and also to see if you would ever make more maps for bad golf.

My fiancée is in the military as or other people in our family. It causes us to look for games to play online to stay in touch and be entertained. These games would be great to be able to play with others online. I highly assume that this is not in your game plan, but had to ask. That being said, I REALLY hope additional maps for bad golf might me something you have thought about. My friends and I just can not get enough!!!

In closing I would just like to tell you again how great your games are. Thanks again!
