Biweekly Poll Talkback - Screen Size
These random sketches I'm posting are largely unrelated to the biweekly poll content. Consider them a sneak peek of things to come (hopefully the genre of this game is readily apparent from the sketch XD). 101 votes this week, so we beat our record again. \^o^/
Anyway! This week's poll results were once again very interesting to me. The ratios weren't quite as surprising as the last round's, but something else did catch my interest. So let's get to it.
Screen Size: Large 36(35%)/Small 17 (16%) - Large screen wins out pretty soundly, but there's still a very decent chunk of people who prefer small. A quick browse of sakevisual.com's visitor analytics shows that less than 3.5% of the visitors have a screen resolution under 1024x768 (the resolution of Jisei). I assume that some 1024x768-ers still prefer a small size due to issues with menu/dock bars? What sort of hardware do you guys use? Specifically, what hardware to you play your games on?
Aspect Ratio: Standard 61(60%)/Widescreen 42 (41%) - Whoa. I was not expecting this. First, the percentages add up to more than 100%, so some of you voted for BOTH. Any reason? Second, people seem to care about aspect ratio much more than screen size. About half of the people who voted on this poll voiced a screen size preference, but pretty much everyone has an aspect ratio preference. I'd really curious to know why.
Next poll is about sakeswag (Notice how I just tack the word "sake" onto another word and suddenly it's related? It's like being Batman or something, except I'm driving the "sakemobile" and throwing "sake-a-rangs."). I'm currently working on going to more conventions, and I'm always up for giving away free stuff. What are you guys interested in getting? Naturally, if you vote other, you really should leave a comment telling me what "other" is. Remember, this is FREE giveaways only, so don't ask for something too extravagant. >.> I'll talk about sakestuff for sale some other day...same saketime, same sakechannel (last of the Batman jokes, promise).
