Nice! I plan to put a bit of money on it too. Maybe I invest on it a tiny portion of my SoC money (what comes with geek stuff should go back to geek stuff). And maybe I get some funds from mozilla community support, they still didn't contact me.

I would like to ask here what prizes would you suggest. I need to figure out what would be cool to give as prizes.

Hey Felipe

This is the most awesome thing I have seen in a very long time!!!

I would like to help with your project in any way I can. I am a bit
short of cash right now but I can pledge $50 for a prize.

If there is any way you could post a tutorial on this I would love to
see it!

Unlike you, English is my first language. However I still feel like I am
still studying it, so I guess this makes me EFL, instead of ESL!

Having said this, I think the message should read:
"game will be ready to play once this messages DisappearS, disappears
with an "S".

Es muy Bueno!!

Good job!
