Looks great, ever though of a Steam retro-compilation? I think these type of games would sell in a pack IMHO.

Also these type of games are great for kids, there simple and approachable too.
Cheers,

Hey, thanks!
Nice idea! I might look into that...depending on the work.
My first venture onto Steam didn't yield - but I was hoping to better next time.
A retro pack sounds good.

Nice music compilation there!!! The Space invaders is one is trippy! There are a lot of catchy tunes there!

 =D

Lots of Danish influences - I've been a few times to Denmark, once even caught in middle of a Hurricane!

hehe im got a little bit confuction about that mbuba song, the post was orignaly meant for the space inverders song, hehe (and abit got a bit offtypic). Its was fun to create that one.

Its called Vimmersvej (its a fantasy road name) in Danish. Im do liked they recorded it again after they was aware of the song was originally from South Africa. This time they used the original singers in the background. Cool way to redone it.
