If anyone out there has played Neutron Dust's pre-alpha of Hypnotica then they'll expect this to be just as out there concept and story-wise... and they'd be right!

In Tessa's Ark you wend your way through a digital world, all the while questioning your actual existence within this world and debating whether you life in the "real" world is actually the one you should be trying to get back to. It has mild Matrix-y vibes, only with added mathematical puzzles added to the mix!

Yeah, you heard me. Aside from the really wonderfully-drawn cutscenes you get to try your hand at figuring out delightfully challenging number puzzles to progress to the next part of the story. There's a clever little level up system in there too which helps you survive your missteps for a little longer should a puzzle prove a bit too taxing!

I'm loving everything about this so far. The story is top notch, the characters are honestly wonderful and the puzzles are head-scratchers but not hair-ripping-outingly difficult. Really looking forward to more of this one! =D
