Afterlight is an adventure touching on “trust and forced friendship, perception and psychological traumas.” The story follows Xin, an astronaut tasked with updating the corrupted AI responsible for the mission’s crash. Players will also be introduced to the cute and adorable C.O.G., a drone programmed to assist astronauts with medical supervision and operative functions. Together, the two will need to survive the journey through a hostile and puzzling environment in an attempt to restore communications and request rescue.
Some of the main features of the game listed on the project’s Kickstarter page include:
- A creative interpretation of a large documentation on Titan’s environment – bringing a dreamy and beautiful setting
- An environmental insight into mental disorders, not focused on the cliche aspects, but to talk about their consequences in relationships and personal growth
- Carefully crafted animations to tell from gestures and little details
- Vast possibilities in puzzles by getting to control giant robots
The studio will need to reach its goal of $35,000 by June 14th. A successful campaign will help assure that the game reaches a proper completion. If all goes well, the studio hopes to release the game on the Steam Store around October of 2020.
