Since Astra Interstellar Solutions a secretive corporation. One that also holds a monopoly on the technology necessary to “fold space”. Showing an obsessive interest in a large uncharted nebula called MG251. To get the job done as quickly (and cheaply) as possible.
So the company has begun conscripting convicts. And the rest of society’s “undesirables” into an involuntary employment program. With only one single goal: exploration. That’s where you come in. Known solely as “the Pilot,” you are provided with a small spacecraft. Which is equipped with a finicky deep space scanner. And an intellectually shackled AI unit.
Therefore you must now take on all spacefaring roles. Whether you like it or not. Without spoiling too much, both you and the AI must work together. Working to exceed the company’s expectations. Your shared circumstances will evolve into a friendship that will be tested by what you find in the nebula…
Deep Sixed Release Trailer (Linux, Mac, Windows)
All alone in space – and with a rapidly deteriorating spaceship to boot – your job is to explore as much of the dangerous nebula as humanly possible. The journey ahead will be fraught with all sorts of hazards – and it’s up to you to keep the engines (and everything else) running smoothly. Ship parts can malfunction at the worst possible times – and they’ll fail catastrophically when you least expect it. That’s when you’ll need to choose between conducting an extensive (but inconvenient) repair or go for the “MacGyver” approach so you can focus on the actual threat lurking just outside … and very much alive!
Sure, you can imagine that while probing a massive, ever-changing nebula, you’d discover more than space rocks and the odd celestial body. In fact, you’ll have to deal with a vast ecosystem filled with bizarre, wondrous alien creatures. Attack them head-on with lasers – or study their habits while hopefully avoiding their gaze. Unlock and equip upgrades along the way to raise the odds of survival – and remember: Perfect journeys are impossible … and you’ll probably die anyway 🙂
