How To Track How Many Times Your Twine Game Has Been Played?

asked Sep 9, 2017 by KaiScript (160 points)

I am new to Twine and my googling/forum browsing has not found me a straightforward simple answer. I want to link my Twine games on my simple website/portfolio for easy access. However, in order to prove my game has some merit to potential clients, I thought it would be nice to track how many times my game has been "played/read". Like how you can see how many views a published article has.

How do I accomplish this? Please and thank you!

Maybe the trick here would be to host your twine games on your own website, where you have your own (I assume) analytics tracking?

Seems like less of a Twine question and more of a web development question.

I post my games to Newgrounds. Not only does that track views, but it also tracks any awards your game wins- daily, weekly, and monthly best, review crew pick, or if your game is frontpaged. Plus there is already a huge community eager to play and offer feedback!
