Alternativa, DARKSTAR launched today

Sci-fi fans get a double dose of gaming goodness today, as not one but two different adventures have just been released.


Set in 2045, Alternativa is a cyberpunk adventure from Centauri Production, combining several short stories together to tell a tale about a world devasted by war and now run by an oppressive dictatorial government. The various tales promise to take players through such diverse scenarios as a "rape investigation, nocturnal visits to the morgue or database hacker attacks." Alternativa is available now for download from Steam at a special launch price of $22.49 USD.

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.

I’ve been waiting for Alternativa for what seems like years, so I’m glad to hear about the launch. But that voice acting in the first video is AWFUL.

Yes please, reviews would be much appreciated. I want both these games, but I can’t decide which one I want to play first.
Also, I thought I heard that there would be a digital download version of DarkStar… is that true? Because shipping the discs to the UK turns out to be really expensive.

Am eagerly awaiting AdventureGamers reviews for these two games!

Wow Darkstar! I remember reading about that nearly a decade ago on the Mystery Science Theater 3000 website (the game features a bunch of that show’s cast). I didn’t think that thing still existed…
