I'm Very glad to see you guys are still working on this game.
Re-installing now!

As a brief side note. I love that devs are able to update their Apps at any time.. it might just be my favorite thing about the platform.

I'm getting a bit misty-eyed here...

This is some of the best iPhone gaming news I've heard in a while. Many of us thought Trapdoor was no more and were sadly expecting one of the funniest, loveliest games on the AppStore to disappear.

Can't wait to update.
