just got done playing this. had a great time with it. I often think about the subject you've presented and its a plausible possibilty in my mind. I've never done a text adventure before but it was a great intro for me. Looking forward to your others.

I just love the game and the atmosphere.
I bought the physical version for my C64 at polyplay.xyz and I look forward playing any successor titles :-) So please support Stefan so he can do more such awesome games in the future.
@Stefan: Just one thing plz. Isn't it possible to override savegames? When using an existing savegame filename it will cause an error message.
That's a limitation of the C64 filesystem itself, so for the moment it is not possible. You might want to play Eight Feet Under, which is an addon for Hibernated 1, if you haven't already. Cheers!
This is a great game! Any chance for you to make a version with graphics in it like you did in the Curse of Rabenstein? That would be an awesome upgrade. I think it would be OK if it needs to load up the graphics every now and then. If you have every played the C64 game Mindfighter, then that's the kind of graphics I'm thinking about. Would add loads of atmosphere into an already great game. Keep up the good work!
The Hibernated series will remain text only unfortunately, which kinda is my trademark. With Rabenstein I intentionally tried to create a graphic adventure. I‘m glad you like it! Cheers
Hey I've received the Atari ST game Stefan. I cannot wait to open the box and see what's inside!! Thank you :)
Just finished the game. Loved it - played the C64 version. You got me stumped there two or three times, but I can't say any of the puzzles are way too complicated (except where the parser requires "eat" instead of a simple "use" perhaps). The atmosphere is pretty good too - certainly reminiscent of popular game culture. The opening kind of reminds me of Level 9's "Snowball".
Congratulations on the use of DAAD parser - being Portuguese the Aventuras AD titles (or Spanish text adventures in general) played a big part in my imaginary. Of course the story of how supposedly Andrés Samudio (head of AD) was left hanging by Tim Gilberts is very interesting on its own - there's a "recent" interview - by Karnevi that tells the story (from Samudio's perspective).
Also added the game to the Interactive Fiction Database - please alter the details as you see fit, of course - here's the link.
Cheers and keep up the good work!
Thank you so much, I'm glad you enjoyed it. The C64 version got a 87% score in the recent Zzap!64 annual, I'm glad there is so much appreciation. You may be excited to know that there is a physical, boxed release coming in early December via Poly.Play, containing feelies and also coming with "Eight Feet Under", a standalone Hibernated 1 Addon. The opening actually is a homage to Infocom's "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". I never played Snowball but I acquired the trilogy some months ago and promised myself I'll catch up soon. Yes, Tim Gilberts was my mentor in this. We know each other very well. With the blessing of Andrés Samudio we fully recovered DAAD Adventure Writer recently. You can find it here.
Very enjoyable game - it reminds of old times. I'd like to see a score counter and a more helpful hint system, though...
Excellent writing, lots to explore, and plenty of puzzles that will challenge you though not drive you mad. Get playing ...
