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.

Of all the games created by this dev, this is the one for me. Lots of unlockables.

I've had fun so far, but I haven't figured out the strategy yet. Usually the first person on the team you assign to something will get the stat bonuses, but my own character has gotten 0 stat bonuses and I'm not sure which parts to try to force raises fo, say, strength reliably.

If you want a stat bonus, you must work first before assigning someone.

I preordered this game, and got it the day it came out! It’s a great game, if you like that sort of thing! Now, suddenly, when I try to tap “Continue” to get out of a little notification, the app crashes. I’ve taken it out of the App switcher, and restarted my phone! Short of deleting the app and reinstalling it, does anyone have any suggestions I can try? Thanks, and happy gaming!

Hi, I'm the developer. What were you doing right before the crash, and what text is on the screen before you try to hit Continue?

Thanks for getting back to me! I am pretty sure I had all three characters doing different tasks, and someone got into a fight. I’ve copied the text, minus the “Victory” and the “Continue”. Victory!

You win, but the robots show great promise in combat... Sorry for the spoiler!

Haven't come very far but like it this far. I havee recruited the two friends, but don't know what I should do with them. I am on 0 dollars now and absolutely not very good.
