 It's almost time to start your downloads!  You'll be seeing a message soon with your download codes!  

And, we're doing something outlandishly fun!  We're not going to give you a single code - we're going to give you three of them!

The first one is your download code - that gives you a free download of Jumpman Forever for Windows or Mac.  

The second code is ANOTHER free download - give it to a friend!  

Then the third code is a contest code.  We know a lot of the people on here love the original Jumpman game, and are already geeking out about Jumpman Forever (I should know - I'm the one that answers all the emails ;-)  The third code is 20% of purchasing Jumpman Forever through Midnight Ryder Technologies's website - give that one to everyone.  The code is good from now until December 31st, 2015 - after that, it expires.  It's multi-use - in fact, we're going to be tracking how often the codes are used.  On January 2nd, 2015, we'll tally up the results of the contest code, and find out the top three people that convinced others to buy Jumpman Forever!  Tweet it, Like it, Share it, +it, /redit, everything you can think of - because the top three will end up with a really awesome Jumpman Forever poster signed by the lead developer (and hopefully the rest of the team, though one of them is now in Korea!)  That's probably not all, though - we're planning on giving away some other goodies too, but we're going to hold off on saying what just yet! 

So, there you go - you'll get your copy, you'll get a copy for a friend, and you'll get a discount to give away to friends and family (or even strangers) to see if you can win the poster and the other swag! :-)

Exciting times - we're definitely trying to keep things jumping ;-)

      About half of the water levels are all about knowing the order of grabbing the bombs - two of them basically force you to run from one side of the screen to the other to get the lowest bombs first, but you have to take the long way around. For 1.1 there's already a "toned down" game option called "Casual" that slows down the alienators further - it almost made it into 1.0, but we don't have it balanced out yet (and we need to get the new high-score board in there for it to be really effective.)

      We already have a list of things that are "to do's" all the way up to 2.0, including the interlude music (the "why" is a long story.)

      Thanks for the support. It works now. Even the sounds and music turn now on (the first few tries there was no sound/music, a bug I presume?). The more I play it, the more I like it. Tbh, I thought the classic was better, but when I play the classic Jumpman Lives now, it feels odd and the new one feels better. You can tell how much has improved. That being said, there are a few things that needs improvement, including the menus in 1920x1080 resolution. It still looks odd. Also, the sound when jumpman appears is too loud and needs to be a little bit more quiet. There is a lack of happy ending level music tune. Make use of the Esc button and Start button for controllers. Even though I get better on this, it is still too hard game. I haven't even finished one episode yet... I like the new gameplay mechanics. I see you have put some effort into adding new gameplay mechanics such as double jump that are really neat additions. I don't like the water levels. I don't think I've even passed one yet. Can't wait for new episodes and versions to try out.

      Because when I manually entered that one, I fumble fingered it. Try it again now - sorry about that! :-)

      Now I got "The product requirements for this discount are not met."

      Yours is fixed - looks like the auto-key generator decided to skip a few numbers. Fixed yours first, but I'm going to have to look through the keys and see what others it missed.

      All I get when trying the download and discount codes is "This discount is invalid."...
