Cool, thanks for starting the thread. Just want to clear up that the way the game works is actually that your engine is "fueled" by the snow. So basically as you're zooming downward, you need to keep collecting flakes to keep your engine going (your snowball slowly shrinks over time as long as you aren't collecting any snow). The more flakes you collect, the bigger your snowball gets and the faster you'll go.

We also have a short little pre-release cinematic/teaser setting up the universe and story a bit... give it a look!

Default Alright! Another FSM game!

I will always instantly buy a FSM game. So far nothing but great games. Still waiting for a console title? Maybe Xbox Live or PSN at least? Come on guys! Make a big console title. A massive bug heroes game for a console!

Haha... we would LOVE to do a console game. Maybe we will in the future, but right now we're just the team of 4 bros, so we figure it would better to focus development on one platform, rather then over-extend ourselves A more advanced Bug Heroes console game would be amazing though...

This is also pretty cool -- wired.com just listed Sky Gnomes as one of the top apps shown at Macworld!
