Description
Release date: Summer 2017
The Fall of Lazarus is a first person exploration and mystery game set in a science fiction future. You are a crew member of the USSC Lazarus waking up from cryo sleep without memories and even without name in an apparently abandoned drifting cargo spaceship. But you’re not alone, there is also Hybris, the Artificial intelligence who commands the ship. Who are you? What are you doing there? What is the Black Cube?

The truth is darker than space.

The game takes place aboard the USSC Lazarus (Unified Space Ship Companies), a ship that belongs to KR Corporation (Kross-Rübel), a company dedicated to the interstellar transport of goods and with close ties to the mining industry. The player takes on the role of the protagonist, a veteran of the Venusian wars looking to carve out a new future for himself. He has enlisted to participate in an eight-year mission to work on a mining colony. When he wakes up from hypersleep he finds himself alone on the ship and with no memories.

The player must then explore, investigate and find a way to get off the ship before the situation gets worse. Along the way, the protagonist will experience a series of traumatic events related to his personal life: visions, dreamlike recollections, strange noises and apparitions that mess with his head and make him question what is real and what is not.



We have a script with a main plot and a linear emotive journey waiting for you, but this is just the beginning. If you go deep and investigate you'll see there ir more beneath the surface. Once you've played the first scenes of the game you'll be able of wandering the full ship, searching and exploring every single detail.

The mystery of what is happening is the basis of the Lazarus gameplay, although the player is the one who gathers all the clues and details scattered throughout the ship to reach the conclusion.



We will launch The Fall of Lazarus on PC at first. We obviously want to release it on as much platforms as we can, but right now we have to focus on the PC version.





The Fall of Lazarus is a first person exploration game. There is a main story you’ll play but you’ll have to search and inspect every detail of the scenary looking for clues, notes, letters and objects and piece by piece gather information about what’s happening around you.



There are a lot of mysteries aboard the USSC Lazarus and depends on you how many of them you can resolve along your journey. At the end of it maybe you resolve the bigger puzzle around what’s going on. Maybe you’re right. Maybe you’re wrong. You’ll need to have in mind every detail in order to unveil the whole story.

You’ll have to resolve some logic puzzles as well, but we wanted to integrate them in the narrative and the scenery. You are in a spaceship and we wanted it to feel like it. The interaction with these puzzles is the same as in the rest of the game trying to not break the immersion in the story.



If you want to use the terminals of the Lazarus you'll have to break in them through social hacking cheking the exonet looking for information.

Some will give you key information, others will help you in your way out. There is a whole operating system full of software and apps filled with information of any kind to explore and take advantage of. You’ll have a tool (called Mnem/0z1n3) that will help you gathering and classifying information and breaking through password protected terminals.

You also will have to solve some mechanic puzzles (the USSC Lazarus is falling apart and if you want to survive you'll have to fix it). Engine malfunction, fixing the stelar map... and a suspicious and omnipresent AI messing around . There's no easy way out!

The Fall of Lazarus: The First Passenger is the auto conclusive prologue and demo of The Fall of Lazarus. In this little adventure set in the year 2180 you will play as Caleb Rogers, a Gen-Ethics (an audit firm focused on controlling the normative and quality of criogenic, clonation and genetic alteration processes) who wakes up in the USSC Lazarus against his will.



The First Passenger is a little slice of the final game where we showcase all the playable mechanics of the full game and also works as an example of the narrative we want to play with. You can play a whole level of the USSC Lazarus out of the five levels will include the final game, every one of them highly detailed and full of objects and terminal to interact with while playing the main story. But we wanted you to enjoy this little stand alone experience separately if you want to. This is only the prologue with another protagonist but we highly recommend you to stay tuned and, when the day comes, enjoy the full experience.





Thank you all!

Just backed you on kickstarter, good luck! Please consider adding VR Support; if you can, room scale and hand tracking controls would be neat, also a variety of movement options (traditional, teleportation, etc.). Thanks :)!
