  1. Awesome
    It would be even better if I spoke Dutch LOL. I see Pioneer One has reached is donation goal, and another three episodes will be produced. Am also paying attention to “The Tunnel” out of Australia, although their financial needs are considerably more ambitious.
    So, CBC and NFBofC… thoughts?

    It looks better than it is; it comes with drm (works for only 2 weeks) and it’s Windows only.
