New Visuals for sci-fi action-puzzler, Tartarus
Abyss Gameworks released the second trailer for their dark, sci-fi action title.
The story places you, Cooper the miner, aboard Mining and Research Vessel Tartarus as it inexplicably activates security protocols near Neptune. The only way to survive and not crash into the planet is to reach the bridge and reset the ship’s systems one by one. Vessel Engineer Andrews will aid you throughout the game, but making it out alive is easier said than done.
In order to reach the bridge, you have to hack system terminals. Hacking requires you to use specific commands, which AG describe as very realistic, to control the terminals that keep you from your goal. Between these terminals you’ll encounter the action elements of Tartarus. While traversing the drifting vessel, you will need to search items along the way for information critical to operating terminals.
Have you been looking for a deep text-based puzzler with action elements set in a retro-futuristic Atmosphere? Have you never considered those words in that order? Either way, this might be the PC release for you. Expect a 2017 release for Tartarus.
