Major thanks! It wouldn't be the same w/o Derek Yu's tileset on the freeware :)

I know! Not to mention glyphs weren't always showing up and a whole host of other annoying side-effects... Feel kinda dumb for messing that up so badly at first.

This is great! Thanks for supporting us Mac users!

My only complaint is that the window is still so tiny that I prefer to play the Windows version in a virtual machine like Parallels. (Yeah, you can zoom in the screen in OSX, but then everything else on your screen is too awkward to use). Any chance of getting a resolution x 2 setting?

I hope at least that the Unity version will not have this problem... I've already pre-ordered, regardless. :D

I spent a lot of time trying to get around the fullscreen problems with the Mac version: It basically comes down to Game Maker not supporting views and having issues with our resolution. I tried some pretty drastic workarounds, one was horribly slow (as in bullet time) and the other didn't seem to have any perceivable effect at all. Both would have worked in Windows, I'm sad to say... Sorry.

The good news is that the Unity version fullscreens beautifully on Mac. Don't have to change a thing :)

That's too bad that you ran into those problems with Game Maker, but thanks for trying so hard! I'm very excited to hear that the Unity version won't have that problem!
