App description: Games are about adventure. That's why you usually incarnate a brave prince who must go through a great journey full of enemies, fights, puzzles and secret passages in order to rescue a helpless princess locked up on the top of the enemy's hightest tower. It's looks like fun, doesn't it? But how about living that great adventure from another point of view? How about being the princess?

Hope will not leave anyone indifferent. Starting with the concept itself, it's more of an interactive experience than a videogame, bringing a whole new perspective over the classical motif of the hero rescuing the damsel in distress. For the first time ever, you will see the game universe through the eyes of the archetypical frail princess, incarnating her during the whole adventure. Loneliness, fear, boredom, anxiety Will the Prince make it? Did he perish in the underwater level? How many lives does he have left?

In Hope the players actions are limited by the characters confinement. There is not much to do in the damp tower youre trapped in besides walking, sighing and crying. And sleeping at night, of course. Nothing you can do will affect the development of the story, although you may find a way to know about the Princes journey. You may also be able to find out about the Princess background, that part of the tale nobody ever cares about. And of course, there will be an ending, although it may not look as heroic from this point of view or does it?

I had a similar experience.

When the continue screen popped up for the first time, it didn't react to my input. Now it looks like I'm "stuck" with my original (inadvertant) decision and the Bad End it entails, even if I go back to revisit the day.

So anyway, I just deleted the app and restarted. I figure that'll sort it out. (I'll let you know in a few days.)

As a bonus, there's a whole heap of first day stuff that I do not remember from my first 'playthrough' (maybe this was a bug I couldn't have noticed, something I accidentally tapped through, or something I just forgot after getting caught up in the princess's story). I didn't see the introductory picnic scene before the update, nor did I run and jump about with the prince.

When I load the app now, nothing is happening. The black screen has been replaced by the room in the tower but the princess isn't in sight and there is no joystick or buttons.....I've restarted the app and device to no avail.

Click on the top right to open the menu, and go back to day 5.

I'm having the same issue (empty tower), I click on the little gear icon and it doesn't respond. :/

Edit: After several restarts, the icon finally worked. Thanks!

Interesting. Is it possible to see both endings without deleting/reinstalling and waiting through all the days again? I can go back to the decision-point and make a different choice, but it doesn't matter: the final day remains unchanged.

Also, I still get a back screen sometimes: after the rock/paper/scissors cut scene (when I went back and played it again) and after the end (sad ending in my case) when there is a big blue icon for the game but nothing else. (But restarting the app helps, so this isn't as serious!)

Lastly, just to have fun with the spoiler tag I will mention a leaf blower, unless more redactions here the third mustard-covered All right, I'm done. Sorry. slightly dizzy.
