First-person puzzler/adventure is landing on the PC and Mac this later this month.
Cast as the lone survivor of your ship and crash-landed on an inhospitable alien world, developer Red Herring Labs and Phoenix Online Studios’ Morningstar looks pretty interesting. The point-and-click adventure is being billed as ‘chilling’ and ‘haunting’, two words that you usually don’t find associated with too many games. It’s also loaded with puzzles that you’ll have to solve to make your way across the planet on which you’re marooned. It’s a deceptively barren one too, so you never quite know what might be lurking around.
Crash-landed on a desolate, alien planet, what should have been a routine work-for-hire job for Powell has become a deadly mission to save the merchant vessel Morningstar and her crew. With one man dead and the captain gravely injured, Powell is on his own to repair the ship and find a way to escape the strange gravity well of the empty planet they’ve landed on. If the situation weren’t dire enough, the only signs of life on the planet are the remains of a much larger and better equipped ship and her crew, all dead, and not by natural means. What—or who—brought down these ships and is killing their crews? Why? And can Powell find a way off-planet before he shares the same fate?
Available at the price of $9.99 USD, Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock will be available on Steam, the Humble Store, Phoenix Online’s store, and others for the Mac or PC on February 17th.
