About This Game

ALONE IN SPACE is a first person adventure.

Story


The story centers upon Alex, an employee of an intergalactic corporation in the field of terraforming new worlds. He works 42 light years from Earth on a planet called Miranda. The planet is in the process of terraformation - deliberately modifying the atmosphere, temperature, and topography to be similar to the environment of Earth. 

Alex now finds himself alone on the partially terraformed planet Miranda. Alex must find a way to survive the planet’s geologically unstable environment and solve the mystery of the crew’s disappearance before Miranda becomes his own tomb. 

Why did the terraforming process fail? What happened to the crew and where are they? Why is Alex supposedly the lone survivor on the base?

Main features

• Experience an immersive sci-fi adventure with an imaginative and captivating storyline from beginning to end.

This is basically a space-themed walking simulator with puzzles. And a bit of mystery. It takes about 5 h to finnish. If you like that sort of thing, go for it.

Not a bad game, but I found the ending disappointing.

So I bought this on sale for $5. Played it and beat it in one sitting in about 3.5 hours. And honestly? It's not a good game. None of the puzzles presented are anything unique. They're all rehashed tile-based puzzles. I'm talking tile swaps, tile roatation, and slider puzzles. You can see them all in the trailer. The one puzzle-type I did somewhat enjoy was the data reconstruction puzzles, which aren't shown in the trailer. The big issue here is, this is marketed as puzzles and exploration. But the puzzles are uninspired and the exploration is practically just being guided through the level. And there were even times where I encountered a puzzle and I was not directed as to why I was doing it. I just did it. Everything was find the thing, do the thing, get to the next area, and repeat.

On asmosphere? This game feels empty. Like, there's no immersion. It's cold. Soulless. I don't recall any sort of ambient music. Just hums and rumbles from various sources. I get that I'm supposed to feel alone, but the world doesn't feel alive at all.

Speaking of being alive, a few cheap deaths happened. I might be at fault on a couple, but when you die just because you turn a corner just to be shot with a laser you couldn't see before? That's cheap. Running in the game is frustrating since you cannot toggle it. It automatically activate after about five seconds of walking unimpeded and if you take your finger off the w key, it's back to walking speed. This is particularly frustrating when you have to casually stroll through a toxic gas-filled corridor or leisurely sidestep electricity arcs.

Oh, and don't expect any real ending for your hard work.

Sci-fi mystery game, with heavy use of puzzle mini-games. Solid, bug free playthough. Nice use of in-universe interfaces. Anti-climactic ending.

I hope the dveloper made enough on this to do a more media rich sequal. With more assets and atmosphere this could have been a really eerie sci-fi mystery.

I recoomend this game if you like walking simulators with lots of puzzle mini-games and adventure game like go and find the things and combine them to open this door.

Very boring and lame puzzles. Something about the atmosphere is very weird, like there's no music or anything to give it life.

Not particularly good. I could go in to more detail but the game really takes it out of you. Even these three sentences felt laborious.

I got this game hoping for an interesting expore-a-spaceship kind of game. The screenshots looked really interesting and I was eager to play it.

What I got was pretty much what eveyone's said ... a maze of corridors. Repetative environments. Lots and lots of boxes. The puzzles are of the variety of 'find the object and put it in a thing' or those sliding tile puzzles that are kind of obnoxious. I finally got to a really complex sliding tile puzzle that I couldn't solve after quite a bit of trying, found myself stuck in the corridor, and got sick of it. I went to YouTube to see if it's worth finishing the game -- spoilers, it's really super duper NOT worth it.

I really wanted to like this game -- I really, really wanted to like this game. But I just can't ... it kind of sucks. It "feels like" the developers padded this game to make it extra long. And I'm pretty sure the ending will disappoint everyone who's got the fortitude to put up with the long walk. It probably would be a lot more fun at about half the size, if I had finished the game in 4 hours instead of gotten frustrated by an obnoxious puzzle (... or maybe if the puzzles were more varied instead of just increasingly complicated sliding tiles) ... I think I would have liked this game a lot more.

[update at bottom] I've played about 3 hrs of this game. It's a lot of samey corridors and crates. So many corridors in this terraforming base, so many crates. There are a few offices and bedrooms (I guess) and some store rooms for variety but everything generally looks the same. The environment is very, very bare bones, not much detail. Exploration is not a driving force of this game. I did get stuck once among some crates, so be careful where you jump about. (edit: may be fixed in future patches.)

The corridors are often maze like and everything is so samey looking that it's easy to get disoriented and discover yourself running around in circles once you've opened up enough doors in some sections.

There's a bit of a story that's told in fairly decent English (I've seen worse) but it seems pretty generic.

There's some puzzle solving, most of which is fairly simple. There are at least 2 sliding piece puzzles. I hate those with a passion. I'm currently stuck on the 2nd one. I don't think I'm going to spend any more time on it. The game is just not compelling enough to warrant the effort. edit: (well, since I bought it...)

It's been stable for me, no crashes. Also, at the time of this review you can rebind some keys, but not movement keys. If you don't use a standard QWERTY keyboard know how to switch keyboards on your OS.

Edit: key binding for movement keys seems to have been fixed in an update.

I got past the one troublesome (for me) puzzle and finished the game, which took about 5 hrs total. This game is more "escape the situation" than walking simulator or exploration game. Not much story but enough to explain what is going on. Decent enough if you are into that type of game. For the price, compared to other $10-15 games, I thought content was lacking a bit.

Well I was hoping for a neat puzzle/adventure style game. You really have to not have a short attention span for this - I don't mean that in a "only smart people with focus can beat this game" I mean it in a "this game is kinda boring" way. Lot of exploring but the environment is too barren for this to be interesting for long. The puzzles are sparse and not especially clever or challenging.

The game doesn't make the best use of the space, the story is without any depth or relevance and I think I beat the game but it certainly didn't do any job of telling me that I had aside from bringing me back to the main menu in a different way to death. I won't reccomend this.

Well... I don't really know.
Game is fantastic, nice looking, easy to play with.
It's atmosphere is good, annoying sometimes, especially with the electric shocks you might suffer.
But... it has no ending, not a good one in my opinion, just cutted.
Kinda disappointing after going through the whole dead station, plus a power saving mode spaceship.
Enjoyed, but probably not going to play again.
Worth £4,00 I think, therefore I recommend it.

Easily one of my top five worst games ever played.
A boring, soul-less, corridor fest with tedious puzzles, bad graphics & sound and no music.

Not to mention the dev inculded blatant advertising in the game for a fetish model website. Da f*ck.
