I think there must be more than one of you. How else can you exceed the output of the entire devteam (eight active devs) plus another half-dozen regular contributors??

Congrats - it looks like an awesome game. My fear is that if I ever play it I'll never play anything else.
"3.4 is much better than 3.1, 3.2 or 3.3. It still is easier than 3.0.9, but it is more convenient to play without being ridiculously easy, so it is my new favorite of the versions." - Timo Pietila
