Chris Biscoffs one man wonder, Stasis, is getting closer to completion than ever before. To help with that progress Chris has started a Kickstarter campaign so he can work full time on the project, as well as hire some outside help to provide an additional layer of polish to an already gorgeous looking game.
Stasis is an isometric point and click adventure game that takes obvious inspiration from Sanitarium, and less obviously from Lucas Arts The Dig. The games’ protagonist, John Maracheck, has just woken up from stasis on a large minding vessel, Groomlake, as its orbit around Neptune continues to decay. John must find his missing family before the ship is completely consumed by Neptune’s gravitational pull and destroyed. As John works his way around Groomlake he’ll run into various environmental puzzles and obstacles, as well as some of the ships dark secrets left over from its dark past.
So far Stasis looks and feels breathtaking, it’s a dream come true for both adventure and sci-fi fans. The artwork is beautiful, the story compelling, and the gut feeling you playing it is the perfect balance of danger, despair, and curiosity. The demo, available at this link, should give you a very good idea of what to expect when the game is complete, which is hopefully sooner rather than later.
The Stasis Kickstarter campaign runs until December 7th and has a $100,000 funding goal.
