Do hurry with store submit. It will be a pity if you will be late. Keep on going :)

Well i just can't, i'm still dealing with the verisign documentation they requested me on nov 30. -___-

Sorry to hear this, look forward to seeing your app in the Windows Store.
PolCPP Dec 7 '12 at 16:16
Thanks, well i look it on the bright side, i can take more time to refine it more and add the puzzle mode. :)

This game seems to be nice one. I'm under impression of all the animations. Are you coding this game alone, or in a group?
PolCPP Nov 17 '12 at 15:25
Coding it alone, for some of the graphics i'm using graphics from a freelancer artist i usually work with, self-made ones, and cc-by stuff from opengameart (well actually only the cursor, from )

HTML5 Games are better than flash, at least you can make changes in the game if you know about JavaScript and HTML.
PolCPP Nov 6 '12 at 0:44
Yeah, but it has it's downsides, like dealing with other browsers. Been working on a browser based version to show it here as a demo before sending it to the win store (faster iterations and better feedback, and i want to add the winrt stuff in the end). Spent half day dealing with chrome bugs in css3.

We want to see more! :)

Looks amazing. Good work~

Thanks! I'm trying to get a working "demo", for a video of the ingame for this weekend :P

I've been using Screencast-o-Matic. Free with a left corner bug, or $15/year otherwise.
PolCPP Nov 3 '12 at 15:07
Thanks, does it save the app audio? I have a video of the title screen on the game site that was filmed using Camstudio (open source version of camtasia i think) but sadly i haven't managed any audio except mic input.
John Haugeland Nov 3 '12 at 16:43
Yes. It tracks audio and can also capture from external devices. It's been a real life saver for my other project (I'm also in competition here.) I gave you a bump for your game.

Also check out Expression Encoder Screen Recorder from Microsoft i've used that for my demo videos on my Windows Store apps for other hackathons.
John Haugeland Nov 12 '12 at 22:50
Yeah, now that I look at that, that might actually be a better tool. On the down side, it's more expensive.
PolCPP Nov 13 '12 at 0:22
Thanks, I'll give it a run. Since im still working on osx (doing the pure html5 part since im more confortable there) the last video i did was done using quicktime.
