Total destruction, crew members missing, floating alone through the shattered remains of a space station. Nine minutes of gameplay has been released that follows a lone astronaut as he struggles to determine the cause of a catastrophic event that took the lives of everyone on board. Oh and this is all Virtual Reality!
Adr1ft is a first-person game from Three One Zero. The story follows an astronaut, who floats through the wreckage of a destroyed space station with no memory of the incident. All crew members are missing presumed dead. With a severely damage suit the player must scrimp and save all available resources to stay alive. Over the course of the game, players find clues that piece together the events of the incident, and attempt to repair the escape vehicle to return home.
The game is being developed simultaneously for Microsoft Windows, Oculus Rift, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The team intended Adrift to be released on the Oculus Rift since the game's conception. The game is specifically designed to work on VR headsets.
Immerse yourself in an out of this world experience like no other, with a VR headset this game is certainly going to be mind altering. Adr1ft allows players to literally float in space with tech better than NASA has to offer but this is In your own living room.
"At its core, ADR1FT is an emotional journey through action, consequence and redemption. In the end, the player will be left to contemplate the parallels between the choices he makes within the game and the ones he makes in real life." - Three One Zero
The game has a very similar art style to the minimalist presentation of the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey. There is also a comparison to be made between Adrift and the 2013 film Gravity, however the dev team state that the game was conceived prior to the film's release. Upon watching the film, the general feeling amongst the creators was that the two are "very different" but have the same undertone and motive.
Releasing sometime within the first or second quarter on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Oculus Rift. Much more to come! Follow to stay up to date!
