With anarchist rioters destroying downtown Greece, it's too dangerous to venture outside and risk being tear-gassed and molotov cocktailed these days. Instead, Ferkakta citizens have a safe alternative for Christmas shopping: the Ferkakta Store! We've overhauled zorkie's games website
to showcase her games better, and we're now selling merchandise there, too! So if you've ever wanted a hippo t-shirt or mousepad, or a Ferkakta coffee mug, here's your chance. There's also a t-shirt for every game, including Haven, which is due out in early January.
The t-shirts and mousepads are handled by Printfection. We researched custom t-shirt companies to find the best one because we don't want to sell crappy t-shirts, and Printfection's shirts are high quality and their equipment is top-notch—unlike, say, CafePress. The coffee mugs are handled by Zazzle. If you're in the United States and you're spending at least $40 with Printfection, use the coupon code FREESHIP08 to get free shipping until the 14th. Our cut is $5 of the price of anything you buy, so go make us rich!
You might also notice that zorkie's games now have an ad at the beginning. The ads are by a company called MochiAds. They don't pay that much; we're getting about 33 cents per thousand players, on average. So every time three thousand people play zorkie's games, she makes a dollar. However: MochiAds is now also hosting the games and paying for their bandwidth! When zorkie experienced her sudden catastrophic success back in October, we racked up $300 in bandwidth charges with Slicehost. Luckily, they're really nice guys, and when we told them we'd just suddenly experienced success out of nowhere, they reset our bandwidth meter to zero and congratulated us. Now we don't have to worry about bandwidth, because MochiAds is paying for it, so zorkie won't be punished for her popularity.
