Run, exfret, and be free!
exfret can haz Hyperbowa-maze? A very neat find, and fun to explore. I like how there's a goal here, too, and that (being a maze) it relies on your sense of space. (Unlike Hyperogue, which was just you wandering around picking stuff up)
I have to admit, the twist they added about 'looping' got me really confused. I walked in a straight line for 10 paces, and ended up back at the beginning. Huh? Hyperbolic geometry doesn't do that... it's notoriously hard to find you way back to where you started in hyberbolic surfaces. But to keep the map from being infinite, they instituted a looping constraint. (Like how in the asteroids game, you go off one end of the screen, and appear on the other.) The more than anything made this maze confusing.
Also the colors. I'd colorblind, so looking for the different nuanced shades of dots was impossible.
Cool find -- and reading some of the minecraft stuff was fascinating, too.
