Glad you liked it
As far as the ending, I'm actually kind of surprised because I've gotten more replies from people saying they did like the ending than from people saying they didn't. I thought it would be the other way around. Some people have even said they appreciate me not doing something obvious like the zombie First Mate coming back for revenge (which is kind of close to what I had planned originally).
But still there's enough interest from people who want to see a more serious ending so I'll get around to it eventually. And I guess when I do I'll add in a menu option to either play the compo edition or the "director's cut."
