Hello, dear Fractal Space players! We hope you’ve had fun playing Pocket Edition on mobile! On this page, you will find details of the update history of the game.
UPDATE | 2.62 [BETA]
Update 2.62 on currently in BETA on Android & iOS! Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you find a major bug that should be fixed before this update becomes public.
You can join the Pocket Edition BETA here:
Various new changes: Please check this page for details on the new changes to test for this 2.62 update, then additional changes below.
- Chapter 1: Changed the end area / optional Color Pack to solve bugs & softlock seen here
- Chapter 1: In order to avoid out-of-sync platform before getting the Taser without cutscenes enabled, the cutscene to show the Taser is now non-skippable. In the future, there will be a specific behavior for the platform in Speedrun Mode to avoid this.
- Chapter 2: Vertical moving roof inside the Big Room will now move three times faster in Speedrun Mode.
- Chapter 2: A report mentioned jetpacking towards the vertical moving room stopped it. It doesn’t seem like it – it’s simply stopping here because it was its normal stopping point. I guess you would prefer to be able to jetpack up to the ceiling to directly chain above the next lasers. I’ve changed it to allow this 😉
- Chapter 2: At the beginning, if you manage to get on to the roof of the first room, you will now be relocated at the beginning of the bridge (intentional)
- Chapter 3: Right-side Timer box button will be disabled and not react until it’s first closed when the player approaches, to avoid this
- Chapter 3: For both timer boxes, buttons are no longer usable while the Timer boxes are active, to avoid this
- Chapter 3: The button for platform / smasher in vertical room will no longer be active until both platforms have finished their movement. The time in which the first platform remains open is now much shorter. This setup avoids this bug
BUG | FIXES
- Chapter 1: After the vertical corridor button fall to the room below, if you activated the switch on the moving platform very quickly, the door would be open instead of closed
- Chapter 1: If you happen to make the keypad appear while the first door has been opened already, using it should no longer close the door and softlock you
- Sound: From this update, setting music, dialog or SFX volumes to zero will completely disable them
- Pressure Plates: If you had 2 objects on a single pressure plate, rapidly picking one up right after dropping the other on it, would result in the pressure plate being pressed, but the state of associated objects to not be correct. TO BE TESTED: All changes to Cubes / Pressure Plates can be dangerous 😉
- Dialogs: Setting them to zero volume will now prevent the music volume reduction while playing dialogs.
- Speedrun Mode: Speed counter will now be hidden on various interfaces (Bridge alignment, Keypads, Support us page, etc.)
- Chapter 4: Pausing the game during the cutscene after birth year keypad would result in a black screen.
UPDATE | 2.61
The latest update of Fractal Space adds the following new features and bugfixes:
- Turkish Language: New language added! If you are a native Turkish speaker, please test and see if you see any characters that are not being displayed properly. Thank you Rukiye for the translation!
- Hints: Chapter 4 mirrors hints were external links to images. They are now offline, integrated in-game, and no longer require to open external links.
- Hint button now hidden during cutscenes
- Menu: Improved menu background with 3D visuals
- Faster loading times
- Improved loading image and loading bar
- New icons, screenshots and images
- Scores: Chapters page now has a Refresh button for scores:
- You can check the “Auto-Refresh” checkbox
- In-Game, if auto-refresh is disabled, use the new button next to the timers
- Auto-Refresh checkbox is ALWAYS disabled by default, and NOT saved upon game exit. This is intended, in order to avoid a specific Google Play Games crash for some players while retrieving scores
- Only when the crash above is fixed by third parties, the checkbox will save the desired auto-refresh state
- Resolutions | HD Edition only: On a small percentage of devices, the maximum detected resolution is incorrect (lower than actual). This is a Unity engine bug, and until it is fixed on their side, the game now allows 2 super-sampled resolutions (over maximum detected screen resolution), displayed in ORANGE. You should only increase to these resolutions if you have a good framerate already, or if your device supports higher resolutions than the max resolution in the list.
- Gamepad Navigation fix for when the “No Not Ask Again” checkbox is checked, and the warning popup is displayed
- If the player has simply denied camera access, he will be prompted when the camera is used at a specific point in the game. If the player had checked “Do Not Ask Again”, he won’t be prompted, but a Camera Access button will be displayed to open Settings and grant access if he changed his mind.
- Various performance improvements
- XMAS: Added a new Fireplace on the rooftop of the main room, as you get out
- Gamepads: 12 new gamepads reported by various players using our Gamepad Tester app should now be supported
- Chapter 4: You could still move during the “crashing down” cutscene after entering the code for the second Generator, in the Soul Room vent corridor (Thanks to Damian & Ilya!)
- Subtitles: Disabling subtitles while a dialogue is currently being played, would result in subtitles not being removed or removed after a longer amount of time
- Chapter 4: Crates now have the Haze logo, and horizontal text mirroring issue is solved on crates.
- Font Characters: Some languages wouldn’t display the | separator character
- Font Characters: Korean and Chinese characters could be displayed at lower resolution
- Chapter 1: Last checkpoint could be triggered from outside when getting the Color Pack
- Hints: With a gamepad on Android TV, the Hint button wouldn’t always be displayed in the Pause Menu while a hint was available to view

- Fixed: The game should display correctly full-screen on devices with notches (@DragoXqwas#9794)

- Changed: When a cube collides with the player, the player is pushed back a little. This helps reducing the bug above.

This changelog information is for the update 1.9.8 of the Pocket Edition of Fractal Space.
You can now fully customize the size and placement of all in-game buttons on the screen in order to place the Jump and Shoot buttons wherever you wish! For shooting with the Taser-Gun, you can chose between a taser-tap on the 3D model of the taser itself, or an additional virtual button.
This makes it much easier to play on large-screen devices like the Apple iPad Pro or large Android tablets.
You can now invert character movement and camera rotation placement in order to have the camera control on the left side, and character movement on the right side; that makes it more comfortable for left-handed players!
How much the screen is dedicated to either camera control or character movement is now also adjustable.
