I "paused" just hours before Sandy hit, two weeks ago.

Good thing I did -- power was out for one week, phone/internet connection was out for two weeks. I'm just now catching up (just collected 214 emails) and I'll be back in action probably tomorrow.

Planet Baen is shutting down at the end of February. As of tonight, all of the levels have been enabled without projects.

I've got to admit, I never saw what was in it for them.

Still, it was nice to earn some free books!

I would guess Baen made the game to give their ebooks more exposure. It doesn't surprise me that they're shutting it down, though. There's only so many books they can give away!

I would assume that at this point Baen is re-evaluating their giveaway strategies. Although they pioneered this as an ebook marketing device, now that they've partnered with Amazon I would bet we'll see their freebies targeted there. With self-pub authors using amazon giveaways and temporary low price points to create best-sellers, such as Hugh Howey with Wool, there's no reason that Baen, if they're willing to do temporary giveaways, as they do, shouldn't have lots of titles on those top 100 amazon lists.

I suspect it also became a problem that the game appealed mostly to those already buying their books (and most became frustrated and quit, after leveling out, which limited growth as newcomers balanced those leaving).

It did, for a while, get a few books out to new people - but they can probably dwarf the entire campaign by simply picking any one book to discount or offer free at Amazon (and they should be able to add their books to the KLL, the same as any other small publisher, which gets them 5 free days and 90 days of rental income).

Well, I'm unpaused and will be at level 30 in two turns or so, I won't be trying for 35. So long and thanks for all the fish! I think I'll miss the game, especially the names on my alliance list. Pity there was no in-game way of communicating.

If you new ones are a few short of a level divisible by five, reply, and I'll give the last gifts to you before I sign off the game for the last time.
