Light Jockey is free for a limited time!

Hi folks,

I just posted some responses in other threads, but I'll make an official announcement because I like everyone in the TA forums Light Jockey is available for free for a very short time (I needed some ppl I know to be able to download it). The link is in my sig.

It was only available in the US store because I was lazy and didn't check the pricing tab properly. But now it's set for worldwide, so check your stores in a few hours once that setting has synced around.

Anyways, get it before it's pulled again, and you better tell your friends about it before it's gone

A simple sound that increases in pitch with every thingy that's lit up.

Yes, yes, I know

This is one of the reasons why I never pushed it as a marketable game.. so enjoy it for free

Edit: as I explained in another thread, I couldn't use compressed sound because it was causing too much FPS slowdown, and even using uncompressed sound was causing framerate jitter when it was reading from disk. I could have just loaded the entire uncompressed sound file into memory, but I was lazy. Just play your own music in the background

Just found out from a friend that it doesn't work on the iPhone 3GS.. they must have done something to the OpenGL driver that breaks my blur method Bummer, but it still works on the original 3G.
