Well done on the professional release. Looks nice and smooth with crisp graphics.

What was this coded in, if you don't mind me asking?

Wow! really well done, nice one. Looks very well polished from main game to mini games. I hope it sells really well :)

The music is really nice. Was this custom created for you or purchased elsewhere?. Either way, it's very uniquely festive.

Judging by the alpha fading I'd say BlitzMax? ( complete guess of course )
Until the next time...

If it was BlitzMax, then I'm impressed even more. One question I'd ask would be why use something that is not actively supported or with a concrete future to it?

Yep, BlitzMax was used - how'd you guess from the alpha fading Qube?

Thanks - us too!  :P

It was purchased from a stock music site, it fits the festive theme so well.

BlitzMax Windows 32bit is pretty rock solid and will be for a long time - and when it does break I'm sure BlitzMax NG will be a sound replacement.

I can recognise the way BlitzMax handles alpha fading a mile away ;D - It has that slight background mist about it.
Until the next time...

I thought you'd stopped supporting Mac now? Or did someone else port it over? It's definitely available for it on Big Fish.

I know Apple can be a real pain in the arse and overcharge, but I had forgotten how bad a native install of Windows 10 is (the wife bought a W10 based laptop recently).  Full of bloat, potential spying and adverts!  On my desktop I got rid of all that nonsense a long time ago.  Windows 8.1 was great as is Mac OS.  Sad that Microsoft made a mess of Windows 10, today I really like Mac OS and Linux Mint.
