As some of you might remember, way back in November Abyss Gameworks informed us that they aimed to release their puzzle/adventure sci-fi game “Tartarus” in November. Well, guess what? Abyss Gameworks just informed us that they have launched “Tartarus” on Steam:

“We’ve just released TARTARUS today. Dear Gamers,

Can Cooper, with only the voice of Andrews as aid, bring the ship back online and save TARTARUS? Or will the entire crew be lost in space, 2.7 billion miles from home?
TARTARUS is a first-person exploration game with roots in iconic science-fiction films. Players will have to use realistic computer commands to break into the ship’s systems, and puzzles will harken back to classic puzzle games that often required a pen and paper to solve. With the unique game mechanics, retro-futuristic style, and command-line terminal system, TARTARUS looks to bring you a different kind of gaming experience.” Abyss Gameworks

“In space, no one can hear you scream”.

Great! But what is this game all about then? (so you might wonder). Well, here’s what Abyss Gameworks told us:

“The story is simple: Can a cook save an entire ship (the TARTARUS) and its crew? Complicating matters are the ship’s antiquated computer terminals. To hack them, you will have to use a command-line system like in the Amiga or Commodore days.
-TARTARUS’s retro-futuristic style and atmosphere have roots in iconic sci-fi movies such as Alien and Robocop. This style has been brought into the present with sharp, modern graphics.
-There are not too many retro-futuristic-style games beyond Alien: Isolation and Soma. Tartarus want to bring this style back, while also featuring sharp, often humorous dialogue which brings levity to the darkness of space.
-Challenging and unique puzzles are the core of TARTARUS’s mechanics. TARTARUS uses a realistic coding system that will need to be employed to hack the ship. Programming knowledge is not required. Every gamer can hack the ship with a little logic.”

Here’s the story of “Tartarus”:

“In the year of 2230, Mining and Research vessel Tartarus (MRS TARTARUS 220478) activates the security protocol near Neptune without any sign. The only chance for crew to survive is to reach the Bridge and restart all systems one by one before the ship crashes into Neptune. We are playing as Cooper(cook and miner of the ship) who has no education or training about electronics or pilotage; to overcome this, vessels engineer ”Andrews” is helping us as much as he can. Though it’s not as easy as it sounds…”

“Tartarus” has a very Alien-like theme vibe to it with no doubt.

So there you have it folks =) In other words, if you like adventure, aliens and sci-fi games, then you might want to give “Tartarus” a go (you can watch the launch trailer down below).
