    Anyone else getting a System Shock/Bioshock vibe from the storyline? The game looks very interesting. Where do you find these games Jaesun? Is there a specific site that promotes promising indie games?

    I actually search a number of adventure game sites, since RPG's are basically dead/shit I've gone back to my love of Adventure Gaming. Granted they are no where near as awesome as in the day of Sierria or Lucas Arts, but still enjoyable.

    I'm not even into adventure games but those sweet isometric graphics make me want to play this. /graphicswhore

    Hope it doesn't end up as vaporware.

    What adventure games have you played that convinced you that you are not into adventure games? I think we could easily convert you over to loving adventure games. ;)

    IGM has a short preview of it. The guy is apparantly a pro CGI artist and IGM claims that it shows. Beautifull and full of little details that really bring the gameworld to life. The maker calls it a survival SF drama. Could be quite good and the first episode will be free, so we can all check it out.

    Oh no, so it's episodic? :( Why does everything have to be episodic?

    The article states that before he releases the commercial game that he will release a free episode. Dunno, probably the old shareware/demo thing.

    I haven't played any adventure games :P

    Don't know why, but I've never been attracted to the genre.

    I played that one Broken Sword game that had something about smoking mirrors in it or something. I finished it, but hated near every minute of it.

    The art style reminds me a bit of Sanitarium (though it could be just the perspective :roll: ) which is great, nice find :salute:

    A small video, showing CHARNAME walking through the ship and using inventory items:

    These 2d backgrounds just give me a raging hard on. Animations looks really smooth and good too.

    Seems ok.

    Unfortunately, I initially read the title as 'STASI'

    Me too Blackadder. Me too. :lol:

    What a pity that this is yet another angsty ghost story. Can't people imagine science fiction without horror any more? Everything else about the game looks very interesting.

    I can say THIS about it...at least the man is thinking critically, and TRYING. He's not sweeping the issue under the carpet, Bioware style. That's something, at least.

    Wow. This looks pretty damn cool. Especially for an indie game!

    There is a new screenshot posted on the blog. Looks like they are getting a ton on inspiration from Dead Space. Not necessarily a bad thing. ;)

    Torpid, my thoughts exactly! :D

    I like how there seems to be come other aspects beyond just the inventory puzzles. Also seems that you are going to get some cool toys 'in game ' to play with.

    No, that IS a bad thing. Burning Bridges is right. Why does every sci-fi has to be about horror this days? Still, those visuals are truly beautiful :graphic whore:
