And then he became a botanist

Tardigrades is a non-linear point and click game developed with Adventure Game Studio. One can solve its puzzles in different ways guaranteeing a new experience every time the game is played.

In our understanding of time, it is the year 20,000 BC where civilizations are about to discover galactic travel through the latest technology of their time. Earth was different back then. The deserts of south Egypt and Ethiopia are green and full of advanced technology.
Carter is a botanist at the space station Marsi-3 orbiting Jupiter. Along with his girlfriend Alex, and your guidance, they might be able to witness their civilization shifting into a higher type.

Engine: Adventure Game Studio by Chris Jones

This looks neat. I love the fact he's killed in his dream by a toilet. Where do I buy? Also, that's Vivaldi as the BGM, right? I'm not well versed with Vivaldi but it sounds to me almost like Concerto for Violin and Organ.

CBS should be re-branded as an advertisement company since their utter stupidity and BS ultimately helps everyone they're opposed to.

Will deferentially give Tardigrades a try.

Hi everyone, please help support Anas with his appeal, he's got it off the ground and CBS was SURPRISED to get it - they are so used to ripping off people who cannot defend themselves that when someone does they are SURPRISED! Unbelievable. His latest message updated yesterday is here: . It's extremely heartwarming to see the support he has gotten from my favourite Youtuber - Nerdrotic! Go join and check it out. Thanks! Random supporter here just trying to get the word out...

Silencing Axanar & ripping you off, and for what? STD: Star Trek Discovery?

CBS is literal TRASH...

Best of Luck with your Appeal!

Heard the bad news. Didn't have an interest in your game but will definitely buy it to help you out a little and give the middle finger to CBS.

As an old adventure fan (thanks Sierra and LucasArts for the memories) and as a long time huge Star Trek fan, I have to say that I wholeheartedly support you. STD is cancerous for Star Trek and Roddenberry's dream and its show-runners clearly stole your idea. A "Tardigrade" and its use as a means of FTL (Faster than Light) travel, is not a common trope at sci-fi in order for them to claim that they didn't steal that idea. That idea was truly original and yours. Good luck with your endeavours, legal, game-developing and otherwise.
