Tessa's Ark Chapter 1 has moved to free to play on all Windows platforms. This is the full version of the first chapter without any micro-transactions or other free to play style monetization. The game is a Sci-Fi, RPG/Puzzle Game with a visual novel style presentation.
In the first chapter you help Tessa escape from a digital word, she has been trapped in against her will. By solving puzzles, Tessa advances through the world, with the help of a party of companions she picks up in the course of her journey. Together they travel through the digital world on a quest to escape the ominous Overseer, and fight through his mind altering attacks. Below are some images of the puzzle gameplay:

Below are some examples of the new story artwork from Chapter 1:

Chapter 2 is already in development, but unfortunately so much work needs to be done that I can't currently put a time frame on it's completion. Below are some Screenshots of Chapter 2:

Unfortunately, the Android version has been cancelled due to a profound lack of interest in the project. Sorry if that is your platform of choice, but the game is free with no monetization and it didn't make sense to develop for a platform that literally no one was playing.

To try the game out, just download it from one of the links below and enjoy.
