First let me say, that your game is looks pretty awesome.

On a technical level, something is wrong with your website certificate. Firefox won't let me browse your site and IE throws up a warning before I can get to it.

Thanks guys!  I'll post some gameplay shortly.  I don't think I have a certificate set up for the website, so I'm not sure why you would be getting a warning unless the link was https.  I should get get one set up tho, thanks for letting me know.
