Publisher 505 Games and indie developer Flat Earth Games announced a partnership to bring Objects in Space to PC, Mac and Linux.
Objects in Space is a retro open-world stealth-action space game in which starships are modelled on Cold War era submarines rather than on WWII era dogfighters. Players take control of their own small ship and must traverse the tumultuous Apollo star cluster - a new home for humanity outside our solar system - a place alone in the universe, with no contact from Earth in almost fifty years.
Objects allows players who want to go beyond keyboard and mouse to build their own custom starship bridges at home using physical hardware. The team at Flat Earth Games have built a bridge to show players what can be done, and fans have already started building their own completely unique versions at home in anticipation of the game’s launch.
This is an open world in which time is always passing and events unfolding. NPC dialogue is never repeated, so if players are faced with a choice in a branching conversation, they can’t come back and change their minds later on. We’re really pushing the ‘open’ part of open world with this game. There is no hero’s journey or main quest line here, but a wealth of small stories the player can choose to engage with if they wish.
Objects in Space releases in 2018.
