Oh man, I know...I have not thrown $5 at a developer on the App Store quicker than I have right now.

Also, if anyone was wondering: No IAPs. Read about it here.

That was an awesome read thank you. Nice to see a developer of a similar mindset, that alone pretty much guarantees a sale from me. What a cool guy, restores some faith in a sea of shady practice.

I'm not into Myst-type exploration games, but after reading the developer's views on his business philosophy may push me over. Just waiting for more impressions and reviews.

Turned off the lights, put on my headphones and played this game -- amazing. I'm gonna enjoy exploring this strange dimension.

There's a review on the mac/pc version on Eurogamer that gives more details on what the game is about.
