So is this game dead? Over a year with no updates at all. I'm still waiting for this to be finished to play.

If you follow his twitter he's been working on Oddworld: New 'n Tasty. He seems about done, though, so updates should hopefully be soon.

Also I'd like to say this is a really interesting game and I'm looking forward to new updates!

So he starts working on a new game without finishing the project at his hand? I guess everything is done once he gets his money. I'll keep this developer in mind so I will never buy another game from them again.

Love this game so much!
Just played through Chapter 2 and agree, its more challenging. But also the atmosphere isn't that deep, like in Chapter 1, I think. Missing more of the cute glowing Squiddies :D Nevertheless - I can't wait to see, how the story continues! =)

Thanks for reporting this bug, and sorry for the inconvenience! Did the red light stay green, or did it return to red and simply stop responding?

The lights on the gear thing and near the door both stayed green even though the door was still closed.

Thank you, I will look into this issue. It sounds like it can affect any of the light switches, not just this particular one.
