Elegy for a Dead World
Boston-based developer Dejobaan games’ latest title is up on Kickstarter and nearing the end of their pledge period. The game puts you in an alien environment as a member of an exploration team sent by Earth to document these uncharted planets. The thing is though, you’re the only one who survived. Now you’re stuck traversing this strange and beautiful world on your own, writing about the things you see. The game features an input mechanic where you type out your interpretations of what you see. The art alone is attractive, but the overall atmosphere accentuates the endearing opportunity to document your findings. It’s an archaeologist’s dream come true, if you’re the type of archaeologist who longs to explore planets of dead alien civilizations.
A truly unique gift is being offered to us and the crowdfunding is coming to a close soon. It would be a shame not to see this project come to life, and give us something to talk about together.
