Congrats on the release. Reviews are good so far.
On technical side, the game starts in windows mode on my PC and fullscreen do not work probably because of my unusual desktop res (2560x1440). Even in windowed mode, the screen looks a bit blurred.
I guess it is made with Monkey right ?

Ah ah I should read better. I saw an openAL32.dll in the game directory hence I thougth it was made with a OpenGL/AL engine.

Thanks guys!  ;D

What happens in fullscreen mode?

The native resolution is 1366x768 and I've got logic in the start up to check for compatible resolutions... hmmm

Fullscreen mode gives a fullscreen-windowed mode, there is a window and a bar on top of it, but the game run at desktop resolution (but fill most of the screen).
