Pitty that you guys have so many commercials during the shows. There's a bunch of us that get together to watch, but we're losing interest due to so many commercials. It's obvious that you don't have quite 40 minutes of show per episode anymore and we're all kind of disappointed. It's a great show and a lot of fun. Can't you guys do something about the commercials? I realize you have to raise revenue to create the show, but it's rather taking away from the quality of your production.We've also noticed a downgrade in the eposides. It's starting to get too soap operaish I suppose for lack of better words as opposed to survival in a world that's being run over by zombies.

What target date do you have for the next update/episode? I have conquered all of the levels in episode 1 and am wondering when Safety Behind Bars is coming out?

Wow, that's shocking. Not a single response to a single question that has ever been asked about this game. Skybound/Gamagio, you have failed your customers. Way to treat your customers. As for Crystal, I have every episode of season recorded from my DVD recorder, and with the commercials being cut out, the shortest episode I have see is 42-43 minutes, so your argument is baseless.
