Yeah, it would be nice if the credits could slow down just a touch so
the appearance of "the End" conincides with the end of the music.

I'd say once JT finishes the end sequence music next week we've got
enough. But I wouldn't say no to even more music as long is it doesn't
hold up the release any more. (I'm still a big fan of thre old
adonthell-demo.mp3! - could be like a hidden extra if you wait at the
game menu for 60 secs or something like that :P)

That's a good idea! If it takes some extra time I think we should still
release the full version - it won't matter if the low quality version
appears a few days later IMO.

Definitely - should I email some UK ones to see if they'd want to do it?

0.3 will KICK ARSE!!!!!!
how about the 27. since JT needs some extra time (don't think we do
though! get that adrenaline flowing!) - if we have a definitive date we
can start promoting the game. I'd be happy to spend time doing this
since I haven't got much else to do for the game right now!
