Post news RSS Dark Matter on Greenlight

Time to shine a little light. After months of keeping all this awesome to ourselves, we are finally able to reveal a glimpse of Dark Matter’s environments, and technology. Dark Matter is our next full-fledged game, and while it’s set in the same continuum as Nuclear Dawn, it also is completely different from anything we’ve done before. Gone are the large FPS arena battles, to make room for focused, scary 2.5D combat and adventure.

Explore the dark hallways of a derelict spaceship, investigate the lights in the sky, and do try to stay ahead of the insidious infestation that’s taken over the Endeavour after your ship mates were butchered by an unidentified force.

Dark Matter’s pacing and action is a blend of Metroidvania and survival horror genres, with a whole lot of InterWave-branded tactical combat thrown in for good measure. There’s inventories and customizable weapons, crafting and resource collecting, along with a good deal of taxing your grey matter.

Stay tuned for more news and information on gameplay, as we delve deeper in the darkness… soon.
