Why must they show the poor puppies?
Exhibit 1) First dog into space
Exhibit 2) First dogs to survive

So we all know (if we didn't already).... Exhibit 1

I posted promos yesterday and most of them were swooped up without any feedback : (
So please let me know what you think of the game and follow
http://twitter.com/zekeinorbit for updates and possible contests : )

This is a completely independent made game and I, Brendan Wood have put a lot of work into it and firmly believe that if you buy it, you won't regret it. I hope it's as enjoyable an experience for you as it is for me.

Okay, I have to admit that I'm not totally crazy about the graphics, but the concept of you game actually seems pretty fascinating. It's been added to my "want it"-list on AppShopper, so eventually it'll be bought :-)

Jacobt...it's hard doing everything in a game and I'm not really a graphic artist but rest assured if the game does well enough I'll get a professional artist and the game will get a makeover as an update, making it look truly fantastic. Furthermore, I intend on adding other modes of play and more levels as the year goes on..

The gameplay really is something truly unique though, I don't think I've seen any other game use the mechanics this one does so I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

FloydianSpiral: thanks very much for the promo code for Zeke. While the graphics are not as polished as many of the best releases in the app store, they are pretty attractive. By the way, the music is very good and I think remains enjoyable, even after extended play sessions. The gameplay is not something that I have seen before and it is fun and challenging. This is a good game you have here that I think many folks will enjoy. Best of luck with it!
