Well it looks like this train is rolling!

Lots of Finns, a bit weird that there are no other Scands around.

No not really.

Google analytics provides the following numbers (unique visitors) for those Scandinavians accessing the Project6014 download page
Finland 152
Sweden 10
Norway 6
Denmark 3
Iceland 2
Faeroe Islands 0
Greenland 0

This gives you some indication about how insane Finns are vis-a-vis just about anyone else

Cedric, I'd be interested to see the numbers for the other countries accessing the downloads. :p

Interesting Cedric, thanks for sharing. that's really odd, the Scand countires are at about the same level tech. wise so it must be a cultural thing. I'd have expected more Norwegians and Danes really.

It probably has lots to do with initial exposure - if at other countries original Star Control games weren't popular enough to be shared between friends, there might be entire countries unaware of the demo.

Yeah, I meant I assume SC II is less popular in the rest of Scandinavia and I was wondering why. I can't see any good reason for it to be a hit in Finland and not in Norway or Denmark.
