Description

*Heliopause* is interactive fiction — a classic text adventure. No graphics! No point-and-click! You type your commands, and read what happens next. Steer a ship to distant stars and see what you find, in this compact science-fictional fairy tale. - A snack-sized narrative, finishable in one session. - Fluid interface designed for comfortable typing and reading. - Achievements tracked through Game Center. - Pop-up palette of commonly used commands. - Includes a handy status display tab (so you don’t have to type “EXAMINE SHIP” over and over). Bonus ship diagrams and graphics added especially for this iOS release. - Full support for VoiceOver (speech output) and dictation (speech input) on devices that offer these features. “In Heliopause, space is the Great Forest of Arthurian knight-errant and Grimm fairytale, or the ocean of the Odyssey: anything might be encountered there, but you won't be able to plot it on a map.” — Sam Kabo Ashwell “Like many of Andrew Plotkin's games, *Hoist Sail for the Heliopause and Home* is beautiful because so alien... The game-play is extremely ingenious at teaching the player to manipulate and appreciate something completely unrecognizable.” — Emily Short at PlayThisThing *Heliopause* won the XYZZY Award for Best Writing of 2010. A browser-playable version is also available (for free) on my web site.
