Heya! I just was browsing through my games and stumbled upon this gem. What originally was supposed to be 15 minutes of play during a break ended up being a 10 hour marathon :D
I'm a developer myself (nothing released yet, I've been working on an engine) and the amount you have optimized this is amazing. Not only is it the fastest game I think I have to start up from steam, the level / scene translations is almost instantaneous. By far the best optimized game I've played in quite sometime (not to mention INCREDIBLY entertaining).
Just wanted to take a little time to thank you for all your hard work and I truly hope you continue down the path of developing; I'm very interested to see what else you can do!
In the meantime, I'll be playing this :D
