Wonderful puzzler! Immersive!

This absolutely incredible puzzle game is a work of art, as you become an investigator- first unpackaging , and then analyzing mysterious alien artifacts. But it’s not so easy! Getting into each crate or tube is just the first step- next you have to figure out how to access the item, then explore its functions to deduce what it is! And you must use deductive reasoning, observation and trying things, and use clues and discovered tools in order to make the artifacts operate and finish the analysis! The only drawback to this game is that you must buy it after only one simple chapter in order to explore its richness (well worth it!), and if you have no patience or logical thinking you may not enjoy it. For me, it’s hard to put down, and it’s not so difficult that you can’t solve each puzzle. Each chapter just gets better and better! Highly recommended!

Very cool game. Has similarities to “The Room” and “Da Vinci” games...with lots of details to explore and mini-puzzles. Not as long as those games, but it was all very logical and clever. Devs did an amazing job with attention to detail and artistry. Thank you!

Side note... we had no problems playing this game on an IPad Pro. There were a couple times where things didn’t operate 6, mask door shut and couldn’t proceed, and the slide pots on other side went the wrong direction....but exiting and continuing the chapter solved the issues with no problems.

Wish people would be more patient. It is quite difficult to make games like this and certain glitches will happen. It appears the devs have been responsive and quick to repair those things.

Looks promising, but is unplayable on iPad Pro with controller/mouse

This looks promising. The imagery and lighting/mood are great looking. The trouble is that it is unplayable on iPad Pro when using a controller or mouse.
I have a iPad Pro 12.9”. With the large screen it is much like a monitor and I like to use a contoller rather than touchscreen when gaming. For most games this works well.
I tried using my MFI Bluetooth controller (SteelSeries Nimbus) but the controls are backwards, or mapped to the wrong buttons, and don’t allow use of the game interface. I tried it with a standard USB mouse, but I ran into similar issues. I kept getting an error message “Controller unplugged - Plug the controller back in or click to play with mouse.” I tried multiple combinations, but nothing worked. I ended up turning off the controller and unplugging the mouse.
The game itself is interesting. I did have to drop the scissors on the cardboard box many time before it triggered the opening process.
Please update for proper controller/mouse usage on iPads.
