Postmortem & Goodbye

Hi passengers!

Phew. It's been a while since our last update. Sorry about that, but we were having some difficult times and we were also kinda scared of getting back here. A year and a month ago we released our first game ever, The Fall of Lazarus, but it didn't work the way we were hoping. We kept trying to make it work, patching what we could and trying to get it to be visible for the audience but we couldn't. We ran out of money and health and all of it just crumbled. We saw it coming tho, and we tried to survive it the best way possible, and that's what we did.

We're fine now, but we can't keep working on it anymore, so there won't be more patches and fixes for it. We know the game still has some bugs and compatibility issues due to the lack of testing before releasing it but we couldn't afford a proper testing and QA company to do that job, so we're really sorry about that.

What we did is to write our story down. From the start to the end. With letters and numbers. Hits and mistakes. We wanted to tell our story because we think it can be useful for somebody and also because it was part of our healing process. We needed to put our shit together and sort it out for good. If you want to check it out, here you have:

We also wrote it in spanish here:

So this will be probably our last update. Thank you so much to all the people who bought and played our game. Thank you so much to all the people who might buy and play it in the future. Please understand that our journey has been such a wonderful and cathartic experience but also a painful and terrifyfing one and we have to keep moving, heal our wounds and start over.

See you in another life, brothers!

About This Game

You are a crew member of the USSC Lazarus waking up from cryo sleep without memories and even without name in an apparently abandoned drifting cargo spaceship. But you’re not alone, there is also Hybris, the Artificial intelligence who commands the ship. Who are you? What are you doing there? What is the Black Cube?

The Truth Is Darker Than Space.

WELCOME TO THE USSC LAZARUS


The game takes place aboard the USSC Lazarus (Unified Space Ship Companies), a ship that belongs to KR Corporation (Kross-Rübel), a company dedicated to the interstellar transport of goods and with close ties to the mining industry. The player takes on the role of the protagonist, a veteran of the Venusian wars looking to carve out a new future for herself. She has enlisted to participate in an nine-year mission to work on a mining colony. When she wakes up from hypersleep she finds herself alone on the ship and with no memories.

The player must then explore, investigate and find a way to get off the ship before the situation gets worse. Along the way, the protagonist will experience a series of traumatic events related to his personal life: visions, dreamlike recollections, strange noises and apparitions that mess with his head and make her question what is real and what is not.

We have a script with a main plot and a linear emotive journey waiting for you, but this is just the beginning. If you go deep and investigate you'll see there ir more beneath the surface. Once you've played the first scenes of the game you'll be able of wandering the full ship, searching and exploring every single detail.

The mystery of what is happening is the basis of the Lazarus gameplay, although the player is the one who gathers all the clues and details scattered throughout the ship to reach the conclusion.
