Former Microsoft creative director Adam Orth’s studio Three One Zero has released the first trailer for first-person space adventure Adr1ft, which puts players in the space-boots of an isolated astronaut who awakens in a devastated orbital station.
I know it's simplistic to immediately point out similarities, but doesn't this two minutes of footage look a whole lot like a video game adaptation of Alfonso Cuaron's excellent?
I mean, check the plot blurb:
"Floating silently amongst the wreckage of a destroyed space station with no memory and a severely damaged EVA suit, the only survivor struggles to determine the cause of the catastrophic event that took the lives of everyone on board. The player fights to stay alive by exploring the wreckage for precious resources, and overcomes the challenges of an unforgiving environment to repair the damaged emergency escape vehicle and safely return home."
Visually it's terrific, capturing that sense of majesty and wonder I imagine astronauts get when staring down at Earth from on high. The floating pieces of debris and human wreckage are seemingly tailor-made for VR gameplay - which is good, because Adr1ft will feature full VR support when it releases in 2015 for PC and consoles.
Adr1ft will be published by 505 Games, and you can find out more about it over on the.
