To clarify, Google Code has been discontinued since early 2016, therefore no new downloads have been counted since then. Subsequently, other websites have hosted download links for our Homebrew games that are in the same vein as ourselves. Which as a result contributed to a wider audience outside our own ecosystem. Out of all these downloads, these files have been downloaded the most according to the numbers and statistics:

To sum up, having more than a million impressions and growing our current brand through our subsidiaries is a great way to carry on the legacy of FJM Homebrew and Modoka Studios Entertainment as a whole. Therefore, a thank you in order. Thank you for those who were at the beginning of FJM Homebrew, and to those who just found out what a Homebrew game is.

In short, we are excited to share more project in the future with our fans!
