It's something I'm sneaking in, checksums are being generated right of this moment Wink

The uploads are accompanied by a message "MD5: missing checksum". I have never seen this before. fogWraith?

The game presentation lacks the polish I would expect from a commercial product. The Mac version shows its Windows-centric origins when it cannot find an expected file since it then describes the file location with an irrelevant Windows path name. Also there are a number of spelling mistakes in the game which I can forgive in freeware or shareware, but not in a commercial offering. The update process is straightforward (you copy everything over to the game folder), but an installer would have been a nice touch.
