Hopscotch Featured Projects: The Statistical Analysis

Hi all,

I just spent the last few hours logging, and analyzing data from the Featured page of Hopscotch. I then took that data, and went through all of it to get some information which you all may find interesting, baffling, or both.

@omtl

From every project, I collected:

  • The Name
  • The User
  • The Amount of Likes
  • The Amount of Plays
  • The Amount of Weeks Since Publication

With all of that data, I can now provide to you, all of this fun stuff:


General Info

So far, there have been a total of 127 featured Hopscotch projects! That’s crazy.
Those projects have been published by a grand total of 84 different users.
Those 127 projects have accrued a total of 865,290 likes and 23,414,606 plays. Wow!
Combined, all of the projects gain 28,065 plays per day, which is an average of about 221 plays per project per day.
As far as likes go, they have a combined 949 likes per day, which averages out to about 7 and a half likes per project per day.

24 projects have been created in the past year. (0 - 52 weeks)
19 projects were created over a year ago. (52-104 weeks)
17 projects were created over 2 years ago. (104-156 weeks)
11 projects were created over 3 years ago. (156-208 weeks)
40 projects were created over 4 years ago. (208-260 weeks)
15 projects were created over 5 years ago. (260-284 weeks)

Given that, Hopscotch tends to put a project on Featured slightly less than every two weeks.
Hopscotch also picks a person who hasn’t been featured before about 2/3 of the time.

Oddities

These are all of the… odd and interesting things I found.

There are 4 different versions of "Doodle Jump."
There are also 4 games that include Mario in them.
There is only one remix on the featured page.
Kaleidocosmos makes up for 9.7% of the plays for the Featured page as well as 8.4% of the likes.

3 games were featured when they were either unfinished, or, just not at “version 1.0” yet.
20 games were featured after their initial release, meaning they are a “2.0” or an update of some sort from the original game published.

10 games include ALL CAPS at least somewhere in the title.
27 games end the title with an exclamation point.



Sorry to everybody who saw this before I deleted it. It wouldn’t let me edit the original post, but I could delete it, so I copied it all and decided to post it again. In that regard, I hope there are not errors, since I cannot go back and fix them myself. There probably are a few, though.


This info was recorded on June 14th, of 2020. Congrats to everybody who has made it on the Featured page! This is for you :slight_smile: and everybody else, of course.
