A nice looking PAWed text adventure by Stefan Vogt.

It looks like that sexy loader is reserved for the cassette release.

Yes, is it a final version?
I've seen it a few days ago and wondered if I should report it here but the file I downloaded lacked the loading screen.

HINT says examine everything but i did already.

Take Io with you, it will be useful.

What stage are you at? Have you solved any of the puzzles on the alien ship?

This is a great text adventure, it's fairly easy to make progress quickly and the locations are all clear and compact even without making a map (something I've yet to do, it might reveal something). However, as always I eventually start to flounder.

Solved:
SpoilerShow
Hacked the spider
Regenerated the hand EDIT - progress made -finally was able to open the door with hand
Read the cuneiform language with IO
Can anyone help with this?
SpoilerShow
How do I use the connector with IO so I can use the freight terminal?
I thought the binary on the loading screen might be a clue to something, turns out it's ASCII for the publisher - "pond"

Have been enjoying this.

Haven't got very far, but it's nicely presented. At the moment I'm trying to work out how to get through the security door on the alien ship.

Don't think I've got as far as R-Tape...

Not far off, though I made a bit of a breakthrough since posting.

Don't know if you want tips based on your screenshot:
SpoilerShow
USE IO around any alien computer terminals
And I've buried a spoiler 3 times with more detail in case you're really struggling.

USE IO around the other terminal (not the freight one), it identifies the language, GO POLARIS, RESEARCH CUNEIFORM, this enables IO to read the terminal, you can then use the ID Chip which opens up other avenues.
