Thanks LousyHero for the kind words. It's definitely been a long hard journey. I've cataloged everything that's happened with regards to the game and how it made it to the top of the App Store.
The short version: It went viral in the United Kingdom 10 days ago and it seems to have carried over to the United States. With that success, I've gotten a lot of vicious 1 star reviews calling the game a scam, and false claims that I'm a con artist. O_O
