Some good news...

Happy new year, astronauts!

We wish you the best for this new year, and let’s start with good news. First of all, the MacOS version is fixed, which means you won’t have an infinite loading anymore if you play on Mac. Once again, we really apologize for this issue and the time we took to handle it. As you may know, our team got even smaller since the release of the game. By smaller, we mean two guys with full time jobs, supporting Event[0] on their free time from their couch. But now it’s done, and we hope every Mac user will enjoy their experience across the Nautilus!

Second good news, the OST of Event[0] is now out! It includes the emblematic “Hey Judy” by the talented Julie Robert and Camille Giraudeau, but also remixed and exclusive tracks which make you feel again the spooky mood of the Nautilus. We cannot wait to hear about what you think of it!

And last but not the least, Event[0] was nominated for Excellence in Narrative, Excellence in Design and Grand Prize at IGF. We are so surprised and so honored at the same time! This is a huge achievement which comes after a long and exhausting journey. Results will be pronounced in March, the 1st. See you there!

In conclusion, we would like to thank you for all your support and your love. We know we may look a bit distant, sometimes even silent, but we read everything you say about the game, and this is probably our best reward after all these years of work. We couldn’t have expected better players than you! Kaizen is proud of you all.

Best wishes,

Ocelot Society

About This Game

Event[0] is an award-winning narrative exploration game where you must build a relationship with a lonely spaceship computer to get home. Set in a retrofuture inspired by sci-fi classics such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, the game is about forging a personal relationship with your only companion, an insecure AI entity capable of procedurally generating over two million lines of dialog. You interact with the computer, named Kaizen, by typing messages on terminals throughout the ship. The reality of your situation will emerge organically as you communicate with Kaizen and explore the mysterious ship in first-person perspective.

WARNING: Currently experiencing major game breaking bug on MacOS. Patch coming very soon. Beta branch reported stable.

You’ll freely navigate evocative 3D environments brought to life with physics-based rendering and advanced lighting techniques. You’ll examine items to gather information and solve hacking puzzles as you progress. You can even leave the ship for breathtakingly scary spacewalks! All sound and music come from the environment; there is no traditional score. The ship is essentially the AI computer’s body, and reacts to Kaizen’s feelings by making different sounds—pay attention for clues!

As in any relationship, there can be gratitude, disappointment, or jealousy, and Kaizen reacts differently depending on its mood. By working through the fears and anxieties of your virtual companion, you can eventually find your way back to Earth—while unraveling the cryptic history of the ship and the 1980s society from which it emerged.
