Celebrating 2000 installs

Well the stats are in and I've had over 2000 installs of Bayou Island Part 1. I never thought I'd achieve so many, so thank you to everyone who downloaded it. From what the stats tell me, I've had more people find the game organically (as in just found it on the app store) rather than me promoting it.
