Accessibility Comments: 

Extensive testing was done before release to insure this game worked with voiceover, and it really paid off. Everything is readable, and mostly easily navicable with standard swipes, even down to the exclamation marks used to dictate tasks that continue the story, or the asterisks which show when other characters are busy.

The only miner issue I had, was sometimes much later in the game when you have many tasks on the page, I'd sometimes find Vo skipping passed the top choice when swiping, at which point it was easy enough to find by touch exploration, or just swiping back.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

This is a really fun incremental resource management and story game, similar in vane to A dark room, or Jsenta's own earlier Nano empire.

Same compelling writing and exploration, similar easy to grasp mechanics, though now with a larger story, more engaging characters, a really interesting setting and six endings to find.

Those who are looking for a complex farm management sim might not find that here it is true, but anyone who wants to explore a really unique world which keeps growing with surprises and twists around every corner should definitely check this out, though beware, this one is adictive, I was just up all night playing and still have only found one ending besides the obvious.
