It's still a good idea to listen to the suggestions. In making Frasse, I had a lot of help from my testers. Bug hunting, while they found some of those too, where their least valuable contribution.
Play my game: Frasse and the Peas of Kejick. The Special Edition is now available! (Mac OS X or Windows.)
