Hi Thomas,
Yeah, that is a slight confusion, since the BCT podcast was the first I 
heard of it, then seeing the release date on AudioGames say 2004, game 
copyright says 2008, but that must be the new version 1.30.20.
Regards,
Damien

Hi Damien,
I hate to burst your bubble, but that game has been out a while. Perhaps
they have released an updated version or something?
Anyway, I agree it is a  good game. Though, I haven't purchased it
myself. Just tried the demo.
Cheers.
