Fight your way back home

Set on board a deep-space scientific vessel called The Persistence in the year 2521, the ship arrives at the site of a collapsing star 17,000 light years from Earth. While conducting a major experiment, a horrific incident occurs mutating many of the crew. As The Persistence is pulled into the gravity of the collapsing star, the ship's computer, IRIS, wakes remaining members of the crew from cryogenic sleep - one at a time. Can you stay alive long enough to save The Persistence?

The Persistence is on a 7-year mission to travel to investigate a dying star, approximately 17,000 light years away from Earth. Unusual shifting energy emissions have been detected by the Soliance Deep Space Energy Detector that may indicate the formation of a Type-1 stable wormhole: a theoretical phenomenon that has been postulated but never discovered - the first of its kind.

The scientific potential of a stable wormhole with a known, and fixed, beginning and endpoint is enough reason alone to justify the commissioning and engagement of The Persistence and her crew. Such a discovery would advance space exploration to an unprecedented manner; perhaps for the first time outside the known galaxy, or perhaps to a different star system. The potential for exploration is utterly compelling. 

Features:

  • An ever-changing environment - A self-configuring macrostructure imprinted inside the asteroid 19-Fortuna, The Persistence is capable of completely altering its layout at will - and thanks to a malfunction, that's exactly what will happen. Every time you die or teleport between decks, the layout of the ship changes. Every life plays out differently, with different enemies to face, items to find and power-ups to collect and upgrade.
  • Collaborative Play: Phone a Friend - Your friends can also help out by connecting to the game with their phone or tablet and hacking into the ship's computer. Once in the ships system, players get to control doors, freeze or distract enemies, disable traps and find hidden items to scavenge for the VR player. Be aware though, sometimes the tablet player gets rewarded if you die, do you trust your friends?
