Hello Tofu Ming, welcome to the forums, and welcome back to the world of gaming!

I can relate to your experience about giving up gaming for a while. It feels good to try again.

Thank you Zukero!

Yeah, totally good to try and get into games again. Is there a thread or place where can read about how all the developers started this up? I mean, like with some details - not just the credits and not a documentary, but actually a documentary would be a good idea if no one started it yet. It's so many peoples dream you do what they love, write/draw comics or create universes like George Lucas or Stan Lee etc, so I interested in the story behind you and the rest of the people that made this game happen. I never thought reality tv would be what it is now, and a reality show about creating games or universes would be something I'd watch.

The best you'll get is an old interview of Oskar, the game's creator: http://www.hookshotinc.com/interview-os ... ors-trail/

There's not much else. Whatever limited time we have is focused on developing the game, not communicating about it.

The interview at the above link must have been taken down, there's nothing on the page except the hookshotinc logo, thank you anyways though.

Indeed, looks like this site is dead, and was picked up by domain name brokers...

Hi everyone,

after discovering the game in 2012 or so, I decided to create a forum account and say hello. It's just great to see that development was picked up again, and I was very happy when a new release scrolled past me on F-Droid a month or two ago. I had already forgotten about it at this point, and didn't migrate the installation across new phones.

I'm kind of a lazy smartphone user, and rely on F-Droid mostly. I installed 0.7.7 today, but I just happened to see the release in the forum. Just wondering, is there a particular reason why it hasn't ended up in the F-Droid repo yet? (Or is that out of the devs' control?)

Still: I love this game, and I can't wait to try the new content :) Thank you for developing it!

Hello Vanka, and welcome to the forums.

The reason v0.7.6 and v0.7.7 aren't on F-Droid is that I have been very busy with life lately, and that I have to perform some repository management on my github repo for F-Droid to be able to build these versions.

I really hope that life will let me deal with this very soon.

In the mean time, you can also download the apk directly from here (see the useful links at the top of the page). In order to install it, you'll have to uninstall the F-Droid version first, and after installing, you'll have to check the preferences again. Your saves are safe though.
