ARTIFICIAL is a stylish and atmospheric physics based first person Sci-Fi puzzle adventure where you attempt to make your way through the remains of an asteroid mining facility where something has gone terribly wrong.
Currently in development by Ondrej Angelovic, creator of The Flood, ARTIFICIAL is a narrative driven first person puzzle adventure where you use physical objects in the environment to help you overcome obstacles. In the game you take control of an operative who is sent into the remains of a half destroyed mining facility to restore the power, but it soon becomes apparent that things may not be quite as simple as just flicking a switch…
ARTIFICIAL is split up into bite-sized levels that take a few minutes to play through, with you often just trying to make your way to the exit point of each level while being guided by an operator who talks to you over the comms. The physics-based puzzles are very satisfying and tactile, with you able to grab and move lots of objects in the environment and use them in a variety of different ways – such as throwing them to smash locks, standing on them or using them as a counter-balance. As you progress you also learn more about the facility and what caused the catastrophe in the first place.
Even in these early stages of development ARTIFICIAL is a very promising game with a great sense of atmosphere, an intriguing narrative and a beautifully crafted game world that feels very physical and tactile. Sign up for the Alpha to immerse yourself in it’s impressive Sci-Fi world.
