November 20, 2008

In an attempt to see how social networking works for an independent game I decided to create a facebook page for CrossCribb.  To my surprise the page generated 4 friends over night (including my mother and brother).  Not sure if CrossCribb will generate as many fans as Guitar Hero (327,457 fans) or Uno (311,325 fans)… but it least it will be an area where people can congregate and discuss their CrossCribb moments.
