When The Corporation causes all the suns to go out, a small boy named Inco and his strange friend, Helios, go on a galaxy-spanning quest to light the skies once more.

As they explore the planets they discover Grapples, Jetpacks, Teleports, Gravity Beams and other strange machines.

With its atmospheric ambient soundtrack and striking visuals, Incoboto is a moody, challenging, adventure-puzzler in the spirit of Portal and Ico.

Back on page 19 it was suggested that 'yes', after a break. I know I'd love to hear if it's still in the wings.

I don't think the controls are ideal, but they work well enough and the game is awesome. They were only occasionally frustrating. Mostly they worked well.

I do still need to know where the grapple is though, so I can go back and get it. I'm sure it will be critical at some point, though I've gone without it so far.

Well if you can get the grappling hook earlier I have no idea how..
I'm actually stuck on Stalwart in DreadThought myself and have no clue how to get past the first section with star piece 1! :/

Awesome game. And the fact that one person made this is crazy!!! Hats off!!!
I waited a while to purchase and now I regret doing so.

This game, and Swordigo, are the 2 best games I've played in the last 6 months.

Hey, love the game. But I'm stuck in the MerryMeet system, trying to get the 70th star piece. It's the one above the see-saw contraption to the left of the Gate to WheelTurn. I see the yellow/orange microportal I need to go through, but I'm completely stumped.

Felt the need to post and say how much I enjoyed this fantastic game. I bought (and completed) it at launch and it's stuck in my memory as one of my very favourite iOS experiences. That it was created by one person is nothing short of astounding.

The difficulty level was perfect - many levels made me stop and think, but nothing ever caused me frustration.

The atmosphere was super. Made me feel isolated and lonely, but not in an especially sombre or depressing way. And I loved that so much emotion could be conveyed by a relatively simply drawn sun with such little animation and/or dialogue.

And the controls were great. Whilst they could have possibly been simpler and more "familiar", I loved that they were unique - just added to the experience. My only quibble would be that, given their uniqueness, the controls could have been given a little more explanation in game. For example, until I came across this thread, I had no idea that it was easier to burn those pesky black things by widening your fingers and spreading out your sunbeam. Since it's possible (though more challenging) to complete the game without that knowledge, it's not a technique that naturally teaches itself.

Anyway, thanks for an amazing experience, Dene! Loved every minute of it. Very much looking forward to seeing what you get up to next.

Last Star On Pity

I'm stuck on how to get the last star on Pity. I think it has something to do with the three dials to the right of the tower with the Blue Power Pod Creator. Any suggestions on activating the dials? Thank you!
