We recently showed Crabitron off at a local indie games exhibition. Here it is from Crabitron's point of view.

Why is crabitron looking at the camera instead of whats in front of it? :P

Crabitron gets worked on in every spare moment and has come a long way since the TouchArcade preview. We hope to finish the initial version within a month.

We had quite a few 5-8 year olds play Crabitron recently at an exhibition. We were very surprised at how naturally they could take control of the crab. It was great fun to watch to the dismay of their parents, who couldn't tear them away from the iPads. There are photos on our Facebook page.

At the moment we're adding layers of polish and lots, and lots, and lots of different civilian and non-civilian space vehicles. As well as the items inside them. Here are a few of the truck cargo trailers.
