In the far future, humans explore and colonise space using ridiculously deadly, moon-sized trains - 'Astro Locomotives'. They're operated by enormous, competing railroad companies and train vs. train combat is (expensively) common.

Take control of a mistreated mechanic and a swashbuckling pilot as you try to save Gilbert Station from destruction at the hands of an alien death fleet!


  • Classic 1990s adventure gameplay! Inspired by genre classics such as Space Quest, Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle.
  • Trains. In space. That's worth the entry price, right there.
  • The funniest writing in an adventure game this side of the millenium. That might be a positive or a negative, depending on how much you enjoy laughing until you dribble.
  • Two playable characters for the price of one.
  • Fully voiced! You'll also be able to turn the voice-over off, since we know some of you like to do that. Just know that every time someone ticks that particular box in the game settings, we'll kill one of our voice actors.
  • Fully soundtracked! You won't be able to turn the music off. In fact, the volume slider starts at 100% and it only goes up from there.
  • The 'unique' graphical style of subAtomic and Plan M!
  • Interesting puzzles and minigames! We know a lot of you adventure gamers out there like to actually have some challenge in your games. For everyone else, just curl up tight, hold down your Escape key, and hope it ends soon.
  • 20 in-game achievements to be unlocked, in case you have nothing better to do.
  • An entirely reasonable retail price of £3.99/$5.99!

Steve Brown over at Adventure Gamers has weighed in on Astroloco: Worst Contact, giving it an excellent 4 stars out of 5!

AdventureGamers wrote:I found Astroloco: Worst Contact a great experience overall, as the non-stop humour more than made up for the lack of challenge.

From the voice work to the whimsical low-res character animations, the whole game feels like it was made by gaming enthusiasts who wanted to make a game they would find fun to play.

At only 4-5 hours of play time it might end a little sooner than other titles, but it's budget priced accordingly and its shorter duration is packed to the gills with comedy.

It's an awesome homage to books like hitchhikers guide to the galaxy. Play the demo, you either love it or hate it.
