What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to get feedback on the first half of the game and to practice the release process so final release goes smoothly for everyone.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“3-4 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Besides more polish and extra detail in the existing 5 sectors, the full version will include 4 new sectors with new enemies, bosses, characters, and story, and a final ending sequence and boss that is nearly its own sector.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access is a beta state of the first half of the game. Since the game is in two parts, Early Access has its own satisfying gameplay arc.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, the full version will be priced roughly 50% more than initial Early Access price.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We take feedback seriously and expect to use forums and Discord to learn what people like and don't like, what bugs people are finding, and what we totally missed. We also stream development on Twitch and release devlog videos.”

About This Game

Independent game developers have gone missing and your only lead on their whereabouts is a distress signal from a remote alien base. It’s up to you to infiltrate this hostile labyrinth and uncover the answers you need to rescue them. Explore five diverse biomes while surviving dangerous hazards and obstacles, solving clever puzzles, and taking down ruthless and relentless enemies. The lives of these indies, and the future of independent games, depends on it.

Immerse yourself in this nostalgic, colorful, and quirky handcrafted FPS as you uncover the secrets and lore of a retro world that blurs the line between game and reality. In the process, enter the storied and autobiographical psyche of an independent game developer facing their inner demons while battling the challenges of making games for the love of the medium.
