Thanks for your comment, I find the whole situation just fascinating, so I appreciate the extra reading!

Which level were you playing? I ask this because there are 3 unlocked from the start, and I don't like to make assumptions.

Awesome, thanks!

Could you ajaxify the hide button a bit? So it doesn't cause a full page reload when you click it?

Indeed. It's a big risk to take for me, and I've personally put a lot of time and money into making it work. So I certainly wouldn't recommend that everyone do this.

I recommend this talk for everyone to watch. I was lucky enough to see this in person at GDC Europe. It's a beautifully delivered, affecting and honest talk about the struggles and triumphs of creating the game, and I highly recommend it.

I'm the company director and sole programmer at a digital game download store. I'm working on the business as a whole with a good friend on a shoestring budget, and it's just about making enough to cover its own costs, but it's very difficult as although my friend is helping me out with the design work (he has his own job that takes the majority of his time), I still have to contact developers and publishers, do the day to day accounts and all of the administrative work. I can see myself doing this for another 5 years or so (though I'd want another programmer or someone who can contact developers for me).

In the future, I'd like to make films.

I like "people on hubski"

Ah, I didn't notice that for some reason. Thanks for reminding me! I've edited the post appropriately.
