Snares of Ruin sequel and prequel.

Hello everyone!

I hope you've been enjoying Snares of Ruin, Pegasus-5, and my other games. I thought I'd make this announcement to shed light on what's coming up in the near future for Astronomic Games.

So, as some of you might know already, Snares of Ruin 2 is in development. I got some very useful feedback from players of Snares of Ruin 1 and Pegasus-5, and I'm keeping many of these suggestions in mind for Snares of Ruin 2. I hope to make it even better than the first, but at the same time, all the things people loved in the first game will be in it too. So - relationships with the ladies, choices & consequences, mysteries to uncover and crimes to solve, a free roam kind of feel around the town hub, the attributes, and of course I'll be saving up some budget on the CGs of special scenes with the ladies.

Because of the scope, I am taking it slow with Snares of Ruin 2 and gradually funding the different custom assets that will be used in it. So, since there are still some assets that need to be made for SoR 2, there's not much main development I can do on it at the moment, so in a meantime I've decided to work on a shorter project in the Snares of Ruin universe - a prequel to be precise, called Snares of Ruin Zero. This prequel will take place during the two weeks that lead up to the beginning of the events in Snares of Ruin 1 and the story narrative point of view will be alternating between 3 of the ladies from the first game - Miroslava, Medina, and Alzyra.

Snares of Ruin Zero will be a shorter project (perhaps about a couple of hours long) and I am aiming to release it before the end of the year. It's already been in development for a good month or so. It will reuse most of the graphic assets from Snares of Ruin 1, as I am mainly trying to spend the budget on Snares of Ruin 2 assets.

Thanks for reading to the end and for the constant support! It's highly appreciated!

Hello space adventurers!

Hi everyone!

Thank you for checking out the game. As you already know, Pegasus-5: Gone Astray has finally come out yesterday. I sincerely hope it will provide several hours of entertainment for all who undertake this thrilling journey.

If you come across any issues or bugs or you simply want to ask a question about the game, feel free to let us know in the discussion topics.

For those of you who are unable to launch the game, check the discussion topics on ways to get around it. From similar issue occurring with Snares of Ruin and Renegade Grounds, we've figured out that it likely happens for those who have an older version of NWJS launcher on their computer (possibly from another game that uses it).

In short, we have a couple of get-abouts so far. One is to launch the game through the 'index' file in the game folders in Firefox browser.
The other is to download the latest version of NWJS, to unzip its files and to place them in the game's folder, replacing any old ones, and then to rename the 'NWJS.exe' to 'Pegasus 5.exe'.

Enjoy the game! (and also the complimentary desktop background!)

About This Game


  • Follow an intense and thrill-inducing sci-fi story set in outer space!
  • Choices matter – The choices you make have an impact on events in the story, how other characters feel about you, and who survives in the end.
  • Relationship building – What you choose to say or to do will cause you to win or lose reputation with your fellow crewmates.
  • Romance – A chance to develop a romantic connection with the female crew members.
  • Skills Specialisation – Your Medicine, Engineering, Athletics, and Charisma attributes will open up some new dialogue options and interactions with the world, but you will need to decide which of them to specialise in or whether to simply be a jack of all trades.
  • Morale is your currency – Making progress and winning trust will increase your morale, which is required for completion of the more technical and challenging tasks.


You are Edan Vargas, a new member aboard Pegasus-5 Trade Ship. The ship is set to make a pretty standard trade route with only a small detour to sell a special rare item. However, before long after departure, the crew wakes up to discover that many of the ship’s systems have been compromised and they are lost in space, unable to establish exactly where they are and how far they’ve gone off the course. Who aboard is responsible for this and why?

As the new guy aboard, you’ll have to build trust with your crewmates and develop friendships with them, for their loyalty can be very invaluable in what you are going to face. You may even build romantic relationships with some of them!

The journey ahead will be a harrowing one. You will make stops in unfamiliar locations, tackle environmental hazards, and get hunted by organized gangs operating in space. Apart from your crewmates, you also have your unique talents to help you out, and you will need to decide which of those talents to specialise in if you are to get through this in one piece. Your choices will affect how your teammates feel about you, how certain events will develop, and even who survives at the end!

Good luck, brave adventurer, and godspeed, for you will need it!
