    Hey guys,

    I just wanted to share with everyone the stats from my last game (LD23). I used Google Analytics to record events from within my Flash game. It was very easy to set up – it only took a few minutes – and while the numbers are not very impressive, I think it was worth it to see how my game was being played. For example, I see that only about 10% of players clicked the restart button and that each level of difficulty had about half as many completions as the previous. For a throwaway game like this, this info is not really important, but for a real game in the wild, this can be very valuable. I would encourage everyone to add some kind of tracking code to your game even if it’s only for the practice!

      Are you just using their event tracking here?
