    2 v minor things. The 'warning' texture on the pipeline is reversed, and the caribou don't seem to cast shadows, or at least they didn't when I toggled them off then on again. Geforce 8800 GTS vista.

    On a Mac in Safari, your Flash movie that loads the images puts up text that is too big. It says "Loading Imag" where the "e" is cut off. So just bring that text down a point size.

    Looks like a good game.
    Some notes:
    - My animals don't have shadows (tried in Options,too). Geforce 4 MX 440.
    - Window mode: mouse pointer is off (y-position). At least in the Options menu.
    You position on a field and the field above is activated (oh god,my english).
    - Encountered a bug:
    After i had earned the berries tool the game got stuck in this state:
    http://www.blueskied.com/images/misc/arctic.jpg
    Couldn't use the mouse to move around etc. anymore. I think it happened with some tool/menu open and the next season coming.
    But i was able to pick up the game by going back to main menu.

    Congrats for the release, and the price tag. You made the right move IMHO, I think this game is completely worth its price.
    I'll wait the mac version to test on my new macmini :cool:
