The Campaign Trail — A Presidential Election Game
Important — The Campaign Trail is currently inactive.
On February 23, 2014 the traffic and server load originating from this game were enough to get the entire site taken down. As a temporary measure I have disabled this game to get the rest of the site functional again.
The site did previously crash due to this game in November 2013, and I was able to optimize some of it enough to get the site back online. That might not be possible this time without bringing in outside help. I am currently exploring different options as to moving forward, which include:
- Working with someone more knowledgable than myself on web programming to optimize the server load this game creates.
- Upgrading to a new server, possibly in tandem with the previous point.
- Releasing this game as a standalone application.
I do apologize for the inconvenience. I expect to have a clear path forward by the middle of March, and will provide further updates as decisions are made.
