"Thanks for your software (...) the game was a full success. Students seemed to enjoy it and many students even asked if we could play again next week so they seem to like your overall game design. As do I btw, the design is by far the best I have seen so far. Good animations to explain the goods movements and also the options to change the settings are really helpful."
