    Hello, i am looking to sell a racing browser game i own. I fully developed it from scratch, took me well over 1 year. Its text based and supported by php, mysql and flash. I have recently lost interest in it and want to sell it if an offer comes along.

    However i am not quite sure about the value of it. I make about 150 euros a month with subscriptions and ads, used to do more, i know about the 10xmonthly profit rule to value a website but in this case i feel thats not a fair assesment for me because of all the work that has been done for such an unique game. It used to have 100+ players online 6 months ago but due to my lost of interested is down to 40 at peak times.

    Here's the site address: http://minify.me/?hrrcsx

    Could anyone give me some hints of what to look for to value such a site?

    It's extremely difficult to sell something based its "potential", rather than actual earnings. Sure, you may get lucky and find a buyer who is really interested in the game, thinks they can promote it and values the time and effort you've put into developing it - but the average investor only looks at your revenue figures.

    My suggestion would be to market it a little bit (perhaps even JV with someone?), have it run for another few months and then sell once the revenue starts picking up. You'll get far more from it than you would if you'd sell it now.
