Everything was worth it. So, I tweeted and then John Carmack tweeted back. This started a process which has easily become one of the coolest events in my life. Basically John Carmack played my game! And then he gave me feedback on what to change / fix to make it awesome. He provided a few compliments, and definitely had a few criticisms. This is so cool!
I love Oculus!
(just not some of their developer feedback team policies)
