New promo codes for the US region.

Answer my first question - you can use the LITE version to answer:

Tell me a town, where pirate attacks are happening (several answers are correct, the first three get a promo code).

Yes. but Somalia is a country name, one of the towns I ask for is close to this area, affected by pirates in the game. Which is the town ?

Our data in the game was set 1986 (Amiga version) and is still valid for such events today!. At this it was not a TV issue.

I'm glad to hear the game is getting the recognition it deserves. It's really a terrific game that more people will try especially with the lite version now available.

What happened with the sale? I looked when you first posted there would be a sale and the price never dropped - and checking again today it's still $4.99.

Therefore we have a lite version with 0$,
currently I keep the $4.99 as we believe its worth the money, and many feature upgrades can follow.
