Myself and alxalxalx are proud to announce what I believe is both our first foray into the world of full-length games.Point Of No Return
is an interactive LP - imagine you wrote an album and thought "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if someone could not only play my album and listen to it, but if they could also 'play' it literally". Well, that's pretty much what when through the mind of alxalxalx and I took up the challenge to create the 'play' part.Story
You play as the captain of the Calico Reverie. You are on a mission to complete the construction of an AB gate in the Emrud system. Once completed, the gate you construct will connect to another gate near earth and allow fast travel between the two locations.Credits

The entire game will take place for the length of the album (once completing a play-through you will however be able to unlock an unlimited mode).
The game will be played from a first-person perspective.
You can interact with the ship's systems and on-board computer by loading your Retinal Console Device (RCD).
Progressing the story will require accessing and querying a database of information (similar to Her Story) as well as manipulating systems available from the RCD.Media

Remember, no answers are considered wrong.
The database might provide some useful information, you just need to know what to search for.
