I hope not :/

Better go and check... Weird, you're right they're free. It says for a limited time but no idea when that was posted.

The original went free awhile ago.

The developer worked on a more enhanced version called Deluxe, and got in touch with me for help with marketing and PR.

Hope you guys like it!
Here are some codes if you'd like to check this one out:
