    You wake up in the medical bay of a spaceship with no memory of who you're, who put you there, and why. When you explore the spaceship, you realize that you're not alone. You meet strangers claiming that they too, have lost their memories. Are they friends or foes? Who is the mastermind? Are you in purgatory?

    Hyper Rift is a visual gamebook adventure that draws inspirations from science fiction mysteries like Event Horizon, Sunshine and Solaris, as well as traditional text adventures like Zork. We've crafted an original science fiction story that blends real science with imaginations and present choices that lead to far-reaching consequences. It also features number puzzles, situational puzzles, multiple endings and interesting characters that can save your life or betray you in critical moments.

    Features:
    - A novel gamebook format that guides you with a map of the game world and rich sound effects.
    - 14 Endings to unlock, depending on how you play - kill or rescue? fix or sabotage?
    - Loaded with hidden references to science fiction classics, from 2001 Space Odyssey to Planet of the Apes.

    Thanks for the link! That looks pretty cool. I love the old text adventures, and this seems like a nice combination of good writing and interesting graphics. I'll give it a try!

    Enjoying this adventure game so far! Nice interface, interesting story, and good writing (although a few spelling errors here and there). Will leave a positive Google Play review when I'm done or almost done with it.

    Looks good, but I recommend you use a sans-serif font (NOT Arial, and preferably not one of the MS Word 2007 fonts...) for your block text because sci-fi and serifs don't generally mix that well. Anyway, good luck with your game.

    I actually think the font's a nice throwback to the text adventures of old, typing away at my old Apple ][+!

    Thank you very much for the positive feedbacks, Diddy and Keith! We've released 1.0.2! Diddy, I hope you can solve the mysteries of Hyper Rift. Please tell me which ending you're able to unlock in your first playthrough!

    1.0.2
    ====
    Based on the overwhelming feedback from fans of the HTML5 demo, we
    - Improved 300+ prose.
    - Corrected 100+ typographical and grammatical errors.

    As for the font, it's actually Fira Mono, not Arial. We find Fira Mono from a website that recommends a list of top science fiction fonts

    I agree with B. Diddy, I kind of like the font you're using now, lol.
    thank you psiryux. the font is recommended by a sci-fi site, but I'm always opened to suggestions

    Quite engrossing so far. A bit stuck at the guy who's hanging upside down. It'd be nice to be able to save more than one game!

    Hi Diddy, he can be saved by tackling a little puzzle at the console

    Thank you for your feedback on multiple save slots. Initially we opted for 1 save slot because we wanted the players to play naturally. However, we'll implement it if many many people ask for it!

    Oh haha ok. if this is your first playthrough, you can maybe leave him, and allow the story take on a different path?

    Hyper Rift is now #138 in the 'Top Free Adventure' chart on Google Play. Thank you for your support!



    And the most unlocked Ending? It's Ending A! What a nasty way to end the game because the mysteries remain largely unresolved! Well, try again!

    A player posted a question about an encounter in Hyper Rift in a game cheat site!

    http://www.chaptercheats.com/qna/iph...htm?qid=113797

    Hao is someone you'll meet in the spaceship. He's knowledgeable and daring, but a bit uppity. Having someone like that around might help you overcome some challenges, but you'll first have to pass a grueling mini game that tests your knowledge in dark matter and wormholes.

    Can you help Chuck recruit Hao successfully?

    We look forward to the day when a fan creates a walkthrough for the 14 endings of Hyper Rift!

    Many players have been asking for ads-removal IAP for Hyper Rift. They say that the distractions severely diminish the immersiveness of the game. It's also depressing to see some players punishing the game with 1 or 2 star ratings because of the ads.

    I'm happy to announce that we've released the IAP-incorporated version on Google Play! The corresponding iTunes version will also debut in about a week.

    We're happy that you like the game enough to make this request. Thank you for your support!

    1.0.4
    =====
    By popular demand, added IAP for ads removal. Now you can immense yourself in the deep sci-fi story without any distractions!

    We're very very proud that 148apps.com, a famous mobile game review site, has picked up Hyper Rift, and awarded it a 3.5/5 score - Above average, considering this is our first text-heavy gamebook!

    Here are some of the nice things the reviewer says about Hyper Rift.

    ... a pretty fantastic sense of mystique ...
    ... dense puzzle solving sequences ...
    ... unpredictable and interesting narrative turns ...
    ... unapologetically challenging when it comes to puzzle solving ...
    ... definitely worth picking up ... (!)

    The review points out a few issues with the control scheme and the writing. We'll try our best to improve it. In terms of the story, Hyper Rift will be a hard act to follow!

    So, thank you 148apps for introducing Hyper Rift to the world!
