The screenshots look a little blurry, but the video looks very good and got me sold. $1? This is a no brainer for me... We need more sci fi adventure games.

I haven't played the game yet, but any day a first-person adventure doesn't come with a list of hidden objects to find is a good day.

Can't hug every cat.

Not sure why the screenshots show up blurry in Touch Arcade, but they are crisp in iTunes!

Yup... come to think of it... the description screenshots are blurry compared to the ones you posted up top.

There really has been quite a few true (non hidden object) adventure games released in the past few days, a good thing in my book. Since I enjoyed earlier games from this developer, I will probably spring for this one.

I love the whole myst flow in a scifi setting, but im kinda annoyed with the hints system. It's basically just giving you the entire walkthrough ingame!

I hope they give just clues. Problem is, since it's there, it's hard to resist checking out the hints/walkthrough page if you are even just stuck in the slightest.

So yeah, it's a good game, but everything's already solved for you.
