Having worked on the game for several months I knew it was good, but I am fairly surprised at how many people who detest match-3's (or at least wouldn't bother playing them) are hooked on Tidalis :)

Glad you're enjoying it :)

Sixt-HOLY--!  Er, I mean, how very youthful you must be!  :D

Interesting that someone elderly would be playing video games (especially indies), contrary to popular stereotypes.

Sixty is hardly "elderly," you young whippersnapper. Actually AI War has a lot of players in their 50s to 60s, and one of our alpha testers (my dad) is just coming up on sixty, too. I am in no way readytoaccept that sixty is "elderly." Or that thirty is "old." ;)
