Another patch just committed

Hello everyone,

I tracked down another issue which started to happen more often now -
sometimes interface got stuck for no particular reason on the screen. I managed to implement a fix which should help. If your savegame has this issue, please return to probe and back on the planet. This should fix your savegames.

All the best in 2017!

“J.U.L.I.A.: Among the Stars is a very well written and beautiful game, especially when you take into account that most of it was done by two people.”
9/10 – Kickstart Ventures

“Overall I highly recommend this game, I think it might be somewhat of an unexpected treasure for those who love old style point and click adventures. It’s definitely a refreshing, thorough and intricate take on the genre. It’s very well written and I found it a bit of a ‘page turner’ the ending is satisfying and makes sense.”
4.5/5 – Gamers FTW

“J.U.L.I.A. Among the Stars largely took what it got right in the already enjoyable original version and improved upon it, then added some welcome new content on top.”

About This Game

J.U.L.I.A.: Among the Stars is an innovative narrative driven adventure game which is being developed due to overwhelming support from a successful crowdfunding campaign.

The story centers on Rachel Manners, a 35 year old astrobiologist. She is a member of an elite group of scientists, chosen to embark on one of the most critical missions ever conceived on Earth. Now Rachel is alone, orbiting an unknown planet. Her only companions are J.U.L.I.A., the space probe’s artificial intelligence and Mobot, a huge reconnaissance robot. Together, this unlikely trio will explore the mysteries of this solar system. But are they prepared for what they will find?

story


After countless years of careful space observation, the enormous telescope Chandra 17 suddenly locates a solar system quite similar to our own. As all earthly observatories turned their attention towards this new discovery, a signal of artificial origin is detected from deep within the system.

Reaction was immediate and a mission plan was conceived. No expense was spared in the construction of a massive space probe. It was designed and equipped to be ideally suited for the ultimate challenge: to meet and study extraterrestrial sentient life-forms. Equal care was taken with the crew. Only the most prominent scientists were selected and trained to ideally represent planet Earth. Everything was perfectly planned and success was certain. Yet somehow, everything has gone terribly wrong…

Now, imagine being jolted awake by an emergency alarm. As your surroundings come into focus, you realize you were deep in cryogenic sleep on a vast space probe. But why you are there is an elusive memory. Disoriented, you rush to the control room searching for answers. Once there you learn from the ship’s AI that not only have you been asleep for decades, but you are also the last surviving member of the probe’s crew.

To make matters worse, the probe is severely damaged by a disastrous impact with a passing meteoroid swarm. First, you must make repairs. Not only is your own survival at stake, but you need to find out what happened to the crew and why you alone survived.

Are You Prepared to


  • step into the spacesuit of Rachel Manners and find out why she was the sole survivor of this ill-fated expedition?
  • utilize an ingenious MOBOT – a mobile robot designed for planetary exploration to investigate this solar system and all its wonders?
  • solve the mystery of the mission’s failure and locate the missing crew?
  • travel to six unique planets and uncover their secrets?
  • solve puzzles, gather clues and communicate with the most temperamental artificial intelligence ever designed?
  • Are you prepared for… J.U.L.I.A.
