Q: How long did the development take?
A: About a month. I had been thinking about making this game for some time so most of the concepts were already settled.

Q: What tools did you use to create the game?
A: The game was programmed in AutoIt v3 and the "artwork" was made in MSPaint and GIMP. The music is composed by Gillenium, Halindir and mariomusicmaker1 - many, many thanks to them and the font is from - it's made by Rein Sacha.
