To celebrate its release on Itch.io, developer National Insecurities invite players to grab a copy of the interstellar murder mystery game 2001:1 : A Space Felony for exactly zero monies.

2000:1: A Space Felony Game
Described as ‘an ambitious investigation that walks the line between science and fiction, resulting in some kind of combination of the two’. A Space Felony is the follow up to 2016’s Disorient on The Murder Express, widely praised for its humorous take on a well worn genre.

A Space Felony is just as hilariously cutting. Offering up parodies on both murder mysteries and science fiction clichés, it also pays homage to both with touches such as the obligatory character named Asimov. As you traverse the zero gravity space station, your actions are narrated to you by a patronizing shadowy superior. While he provides helpful tutorials, he’s quick to dampen any delusions of sleuthing genius you might be harboring as you uncover clues.

National Insecurities will be sticking a permanent price tag on A Space Felony on the 27th of this month. You don’t have to pay anything until then, but you can still support the developer upon downloading. 20% of the proceeds this week will be donated to Itch.io.

According to a recent devlog , National Insecurities have two more projects in the pipeline, set for release Spring/Summer 2018. One is a ‘Western Christmas Comedy Murder Mystery’, the other is a ‘Shakespearean Murder Mystery that’s currently looking to cut it into Dating Sim territory’.
