Fun guessing contest

Winner is imosmo ... 1956 was the tally

NOTE : IGNORE TITLE. ANYONE CAN GUESS, BUT YOU NEED A PAYPAL ACCOUNT IF YOU WANT THE $20 PRIZE.

My new game "AAA - An Alien Annihilation" is set for release 21 December. It's a free universal game. A Galaga inspired space shooter.

I thought it may be fun to run a little guessing game here.

You need to guess how many downloads there will be on the first day. Relevant facts :

- I have done zero promotion (except here and will run a game thread on cocos2d-iphone) (ye ye, I know ...)
- Its free and will list in Action and Arcade

Whoever guesses closest wins. If you have a paypal account, I will give you a US$20 prize. If you don't have a paypal account, you get bragging rights and the payout goes to the next correct guess that has a paypal account. (Hope this is ok with the mods).


Results will be released after the shutdown ends 30 December or after.

List of guesses :

AlienSEX 8000
Rubicon 6500
thedollarhunter 6000
Master Shake 4400
Gguo 4000
danielfan 4000
jumpman475 3750

6k. Good luck

I would have drop the AAA-A prefix from the name, it might put people off.
