Pretty good game but needs a bit of work ... here’s how

This is a pretty good game thus far. Like I said in my original piece, the accessability of AirPods is not present. I had to use the earbuds which came with my iPhone instead. Another thing is that although the music’s good, the audio sometimes flickers—that is, it’ll repeat sometimes as if the app’s skipping slightly. Yet another thing, sometimes, the microphone doesn’t pick up my sayings, so I have to say them again after the actors speak their parts. Like that though, the whole speaking and all. Also as I said back in my original review, if VoiceOver were able to be used, it’d be better. This is, of course, not only for me but anyone who has speech difficulties/can’t ennounciate clear enough for the game to recognize. I sure would hate to hear about people with speech difficulties not to play with this app due to them.

Not my type but awesome

This type of game is not what I normally look for. I stumbled across it by accident and fell in love instantly. You guys did a really good job. If you are having issues financially I am sure that most visually impaired gamers would love to pay for you guys to continue this. I know I would. Keep up the good work guys don’t quit. Thanks

Voice acting on point!

LOVE THIS. I really do. The price drop was much appreciated! But my issue is that mission 2 has been in limbo for more than a would be torture if they drop this project.

EDIT: supposedly, there will be more Cygnus coming and the company is in the middle of making some big changes. So don't abandon hope yet? I think?
