    Oh yeah. I love this one after playing around for a minute and will definately buy it.

    5.99! That’s how you price a shareware creation!

    Seriously, rather than hope for donations, some of these smaller devs should do this, charge a ridiculously low price for a full version. I image this team will move quite a lot of these.

  • Looza

    I certainly hope so. And it’s actually an amount you can shelve out at any given moment without having to save up or anything. Heck, if I could I would pay right now. :)

    LOl, and I just saw that I actually can. Was not like this yesterday.
