Release date: Q4 2014
Description

Lacuna Passage is a story-driven exploration and survival game set on Mars, drawing inspiration from titles like Dear Esther, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and even Pokemon Snap. You play as Jessica Rainer, the only survivor of the crashed Heracles mission, investigating the disappearance of the first ever manned mission to Mars. You have several tools at your disposal, but most important are your skills of observation. You will need to uncover mission logs, recorded audio files, and other physical clues left behind at critical mission locations in order to discover the truth.

There are 25 square miles of open terrain around the crash site for you to explore, and in order to find the missing crew of the Hermes you won’t want to explore blindly. You must carefully manage your vital resources or you will find yourself stranded in the great red wasteland with no food, water, or oxygen. Time and nature are your enemies in Lacuna Passage.

Features
  • Terrain generated from actual Mars satellite data.
  • Survival mechanics based on real metrics like blood glucose, heart rate, caloric intake, and more.
  • In-game photography that allows you to capture any moment and document your discoveries.
  • An immersive HUD that is accurate to potential future space exploration physical display technologies.
  • A hauntingly beautiful dynamic soundtrack that responds to your actions.
  • A mysterious single-player story that encourages non-linear play.
  • Oculus Rift support

Looks lovely, hopefully more variety and replayability and freedom will be added before release. :)
