DARKSTAR - The Interactive Movie
DARKSTAR - The Interactive Movie is a massive FMV project that's been many years in the making. As Captain John O'Neil, players awaken from a cryogenic sleep in the year 2499 with complete memory loss. One of your fellow cryo-mates has obviously been dead for years, while another is still occupied by a beautiful woman. A third chamber lies empty, and the ship's computer has also had much of its memory erased. In this "story of suspense and interplanetary intrigue" featuring hours of live-action film footage, you'll soon discover that "despite the icy, cold silence... you're not alone." A DVD boxed version of DARKSTAR can be ordered from the official website for $29.95 USD.
