If she wasn't at the table, that was a glitch, and I'll be investigating it vigorously. Thanks for catching it.

Hi, all. I've updated the game to incorporate some of your suggestions:

- Added a run mode, which doubles movement speed.
- Sharpened the edges of the GUI to bring it more inline with the graphics.
- Added easier play modes.
- Added some direction sign posts in the forest.
- Replaced the old admittedly poor screenshots with pretty new ones.

For anyone who missed out last time, there are some new promo codes at the bottom of the post. As before, comments and suggestions are appreciated.

This game is just amazing!

I really loved this, from beginning to end and really want to see this continued. A rare gem and slipping under everyone's radar - this game is not getting the love that it deserves. The story, dialog, graphics and design are way better than I usually see in iOS apps, even from the leading developers out there.

Its quaint and humorous style won my heart and kept me playing it until it was done, and now I want more!

This is my Game of the Year so far!

Thanks, Roleki. You seriously just made my day.

I love this game a lot.

I tried to review it, but the itunes store keeps telling me "you must own this app to review it". But I do own it!

Is it because I used your download code that they won't let me review it? I read somewhere on a message board that if there's an update I can review the new version. But I tried again to review it after the update and it still didn't work.

(This would be bad news for my own game, Glorkian Warrior... download codes will be given to all the kickstarter backers of the game. Will none of them be able to review it?! That seems crazy.)

Hello World is a lot of fun and very original. This is one game I wish got more attention. The whimsical world combined with first person style exploration and adventure puzzles is genius.

Apple's policy is to not allow any users who redeem promo codes to review that game. That wasn't always the case but it has been that way for a few years now.

Thanks! Good to know.

(It turns out I was wrong anyhow... I checked with my partners and the kickstarter backers are getting PC & Mac versions of the game, not the iOS version. So, I panicked for nothing.)

Anyhow, back to Hello World.

Gee whiz, this game is cool. People should freaking BUY it. This kind of game is the whole reason iOS gaming is such a thrill... Hello World is a unique expression of a personal vision.

Well the contact email address for this game no longer exists, so it would appear that Hippocorn has "moved on". Well I'm more than a little disappointed, as I guess this means no Book 2, but I wish him well wherever he is and whatever he has turned his hand to.

All the best, Hippocorn!

I'm still here.

The contact address should still work: HelloWorldGameContact@gmail.com

Did it bounce something you sent to it? Sorry about that – I'm not sure what the problem could be, but I'll double check everything.

I am working on a Book 2, as well as a cleaned up version of Book 1 for the Oculus Rift on PC/Mac.

Edit: There was a typo in the contact address listed on the game's website. The address listed above and in the game itself are correct.
