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.

Thanks very much for that. Most of my 'talent' is born of obsession and a dogged, persistent urge to push myself way beyond my competence level. Luckily nobody has pointed out the obvious fact that I'm not as good as them, yet...

...but it's coming. :-)

(I'm currently learning to texture rocks and henges in 3D for 'Bemuse'. Damned hard. As ever, my respect for 3D artists increases hugely when I'm doing this stuff.)

WOOHOO!!!

My account only has something like 70 cents on it... but Monday, it's mine! Until then... anyone with a 4th gen touch that picks this up, could you maybe let us all know how it runs on the device?

BEST OF LUCK, DENE!!

I have far too many unfinished games at the moment, but this is on my hit list. Looks brilliant.

It runs well on a 4th gen touch. Check the twitter feeds with hashtag #incoboto for non-biased confirmation from the world. :-)

Just so people know:

This game will never be free.
This game will never be on sale.
This game will never charge for any goods.

Every penny spent on this game will go directly to ensuring that the next project ('Bemuse') is as awesome as I can possibly make it. It will not be spent on marketing, PR, advertising, or anything else...

...apart from small crates of 'Bottled Awesome' I ship in from a secret location in the Scottish islands known to none but myself and an old toothless man who can only cackle the word 'Meeergh!'. And he's not telling.

Hi

I'm stuck on the same star piece! I think it must have something to do with the three dials on high platforms, because I can't reach them (should I have the jetpack by now?) but I can't get anywhere near the top star piece, I use an exploding charge ball to get me up to the see saw thing, but can't get up to the star piece??

Please help...

PS - Love the game, looking forward to Bemuse

I recently got an iPad mini, and I've had this game on my wish list since then. Your comment (and honesty) just made me buy it. Thanks!

I wish more devs would do this.
