This is a surprisingly complex one move game. It was written for the Apollo 18 Tribute album and named after the corresponding song.
You are stuck in a time loop as a reactor core explodes on a station over a black hole. You have to look at everything, learn a new number system, and figure out some alphanumeric codes.
As a mathematician, this was pretty fun. As an IF player, I appreciated how much work went into this. Great game.
Fingertips: Fingertips is a first class little multi-layered cryptographical puzzler with a richly evoked science fiction setting that neatly makes the one move requirement make sense.
It's the kind of game that you need to write notes on (or uh, at least I did), and has different solutions such that when you find the better solution, the work involved getting there has made it that much more satisfying.
