Very satisfying! Can I please have more time to read the final credits screen?

Thanks! I've added the credits to the game description here so you can read it at your leisure.

Reminds me of course of insult sword fighting from the Secret of Monkey Island. Has anyone gone back to analyse how many of the insults and retorts are in iambic pentameter? Jake?
