Trailer: Get a good look at sci-fi adventure Scars Above’s gameplay

From Mad Head Games and published by Prime Matter, Scars Above is looks great as it heads to the other side of the galaxy for its first look.

Stars and scars

Scars Above puts players into the space-boots of astronaut and scientist Dr. Kate Ward, who is sent to explore a colossal and enigmatic alien structure, the Metahedron, which suddenly appeared in the Earth’s orbit.

Things don’t go as planned, and the Metahedron hurls Kate and her team across space and onto a mysterious extrasolar planet. Waking up alone on the strange, hostile world and determined to survive, Kate sets out to find her crew and unravel the mystery of how they arrived on this alien world and where exactly they are.

Kate will investigate her surroundings by scanning and analyzing the alien fauna and flora of the dangerous planet, then use her gained knowledge to create various elemental weapons, gadgets, and consumables to survive. 

As she hunts for her team, Kate will have to rely on her creations and skill as she uses the environment to her advantage to defeat the monstrous creatures inhabiting this strange world. Nevertheless, she persists, all the while trying to unlock the mystery of an ancient alien civilization and uncover the truth about what happened to her and her team.
