INSTRUCTIONS:
You can play FLARESTAR both on PC and Mac platforms, mostly just by the directional keys to move one step at a time in the chosen direction. The character movement always occurs in the chosen direction and at the same distance, just like he moves on a chessboard.

So you will need to count your footsteps and listen to the different sound they make on the ground. Pay attention to the sound variations and whenever you should hit a wall... maybe you're facing the wrong direction!

Use the enter key to interact with game objects, pick up and use them, and to confirm any previously chosen action.

Since it is possible to pick up objects and store them, you can access an inventory. In order to do so you just have to press the Tab key.

Each time you press the tab key you'll go through the list to the next object. The last selected one will stay active and available for use, just by pressing the Enter key whenever needed.

Throughout the game the protagonist will equip a combat suit, capable of some additional functions.

The suit has a motion tracker. You'll hear a beeper coming from the movement source direction: the faster the sound, the closer the target. Should the target stand behind you the sound will be deeper.

The suit is also armed with a standard blaster. Press the shift key + direction key to shoot a single shot in the chosen direction.

Moreover the suit is equipped with a computer that can be accessed by the space bar to get useful information on the game area and character position.

PRICE: $16.99 (US Dollars) / 14,99€ (Euro)

Game Packs

I see there are a couple of packs for iOS users. I think it would be great to have PC/Mac license packs too, for example the Inquisitor pack. I saw it on the App Store but I prefer to play on the Mac, since my phone is a bit old and has not too much memory.

Hi Raul, the problem is the web site structure we use makes it very difficult to create bundles. Please send an email to info@ticonblu.it, I think we can come out with something creative *smile*

Podcast

Will someone please make a podcast on playing the iOS version? It would be very helpful! Thanks! *Smiles*

Could never beet this game

I could never beet this game. I played it on the computer and there was a point where you had to move around space junk. The problem being the space junk made no noise so I'd always bump into it. Unless they fixed this I am not gonna buy it.
