    lmao @ that. I know the creator says that he's sold 500k units of it, even though its a free game and it gets thousands of searches...maybe ill pay someone to create a bot for it and use it

    That's even a small percentage of the people playing it. Most people enjoy the online classic version. I believe only like 30-35% of the player base bought it (including me) and the rest just play the old classic version.

    He was interviewed in Computer Sweden magazine.
    During his interview he sold 10.000 more copies. :)

    Quite impressive..
