There and Back Again
Release date: Late 2017

(Demo available!)

Deep Flare is a 2D episodic space exploration game set in our solar system.
It is based on a plot that will bring the player to explore the unknown and all of its misteries, while facing the anxiety and the fears within the human soul. It is a good old single player experience, a journey to go through alone.

The game offers crafting elements through which the player will be able to upgrade his spaceship, and 2D shoot'em up elements, but the gameplay is not as focused on shooting as it is on avoiding the dangers that our solar system has hidden away from us.

Late 2025. The world is on the edge of the worst economical and political crysis ever seen.
In an era of rising international tensions and seemingly unsolvable energetic issues, William S. Anderson is the designated pilot of the spaceship sent off in a journey through our solar system, to investigate about a mysterious celestial event - the Deep Flare.
The hostile environment is not going to be his only concern. He will have to face the unknown, his fears and worries, unravel schemes and secrets hidden by time, become pioneer of a new age.
In a time when mankind has lost itself, you must find it again by getting through darkness.

Space exploration is no easy task. There are many things that you need to keep under control - fuel usage, radiation level, hull integrity and gravitational pull being only the most obivious ones. And, of course, there are as many things that could go wrong.
In Deep Flare: Explorer, you will take control of William S. Anderson in his journey throughout the solar system.
  • You will have to plan your movements between the various celestial bodies, taking care of fuel, gravitational pull, and so on.
  • You will have to safely land on planets and moons, to explore them and send data back on earth, as well as for drilling useful materials and make some extra fuel or repair your hull.
  • You will have various tools by your side - starting from simple ones, like drills or grappling hooks, to high-tech experimental ones that you'll craft during the journey, like laser cannons, tractor beams and magnetic shields.
  • The whole solar system will be explorable... if you dare: every planet has its share of deadly hazards. Radiations, acid rains, unsustainable temperatures or atmospheric pressure, and so on. It's up to you to come up with your own solutions, to survive and keep traveling.

Almost two years ago, our project was focused on releasing one single big game called Deep Flare: Explorer. We started by working on a full playable demo set on Europa, one of the Jupiter's main satellites. Alas, our plans had to change in order to adapt to a different working condition that our lives forced us to adopt.
In this demo, you'll get control of the spaceship's exploration module, in a quest to get everything ready for departure after an unlucky incident... but there are many mysteries hidden on the icy moon for you to unveil.

We decided to put voice acting in this demo, even though this feature will not make it to the completed version of the game.

@Peripheral Panda, Thanks!
To your first question: You can modify the equipment and unlock other ships during the game but not the aspect of the ship, yet. We're still thinking about it.
To your second question, the exploration module will change in many ways during the game. It depends on the equipment you'll unlock during the exploration. Some types of module can have buggy-like movement to help you in certain places, but the pilot will never get out of it

Woah, this looks really cool. I love games where developers try to take an approach that really relates to real life and modern day. I have two questions. Will there be ship customization? Will players be able to explore certain planets in suits or buggies of some sort? Best of luck!
