Not even two years since it was released and Counter-Strike For Kids has just passed the ten million viewcount mark today in the afternoon. It’s been consistently getting views since it got uploaded to the Machinima youtube channel and is the #1 most viewed video (that isn’t the trailer for Avatar) out of their entire 9000+ video set on the regular channel. Last November I put out a “CS For Kids: Extras” video that served as an addendum to the original release with commentary, behind the scenes look, and a little introduction.
I just want to say how happy I am to be responsible for making a video that went up on youtube and machinima.com that was an instant viral success enjoyed obviously by so many people. Everyone else who helped I hope feels the same way, and thank you all – cast, crew, and of course, our awesome audience. Going to go put the birthday cake at Billy’s house now.
We should be seeing a new short video this week. Team Fortress 2 and other source game updates broke the Source SDK faceposer, so that put the TF2 video on halt. So, in the meantime, I got to work on a GMOD mini-tutorial video that you will see up on the web in a few days maximum.
