Space is already a dark place and now we can see how things can go darker with the announcement for CryoSpace. This is a new title coming to us from Kuklam Studios and Games Operators for the PC in 2022 that will take us down that path. All in the way of a new survival style game where we are on a spaceship sent out to colonize a different planet. Unfortunately, and the reason CryoSpace is more of a game than a story, things have gone wrong and you and a few others are brought out of cryosleep to find something has gone horribly wrong. You know, that good old trope we have when others are trying to settle planets that humans should have just left alone.
It looks like CryoSpace will also have some form of resource management mixed into it all with us needing to figure out how to make the oxygen in the ship last longer for us and those we awake. Also, we will need to head out and scavenge for food and other resources to feed and survive a bit longer all while opting to place some of the crew back in the freezes or maybe make them your next meal. It sounds like an interesting experience to have with CryoSpace looking to flow as many other three-quarters view titles out there to move us about the ship. All with an insanely dark setting to bring some horror into our lives again.
CryoSpace — Announcement
Whether you call it a stroke of luck or a bad omen, the fact remains that you’re the only person awakened from cryo-sleep on a massive starship navigating through space, far from other planets, vessels, or celestial bodies. You’re not alone, however — the ship is filled with deeply sleeping workers, soldiers, and other colonizers sent to populate the far corners of the universe. The plan was simple. Arrive at your destiny, start a colony, and become a legend. However, something went horribly wrong, and here you are.
Here, forced to remember at all times not to breathe too deeply, to save oxygen, forced to scout for food for distribution to the crew members you were forced to awaken. You must decide whose skills are essential for survival, who should get back in the freezer, and worst of all, how to utilize dead bodies, of which there will be many. Besides your troops, there is clearly someone or something else here, something you were not prepared to face. Now the choice is yours — you can lay low and eventually die, as you won’t last long without exploring the ship and hunting for resources. Or, you can get out there and at least give it a shot, literally and figuratively. Whatever you do, remember to keep quiet. Space might be silent, but on a spaceship, your enemies can always hear your scream.
What are your thoughts on the basics of what we have for CryoSpace here and does it look like it will bring the horrors that are mentioned here? Do you think we will have to take a bite out of the crew to survive or will we be able to make it through without having to make those hard choices? How long do you think we can survive on our own in the game or will we need to wake others up to no matter what our choices are? Let us all know down in the comments and then feel free to discuss it all. If there is more to share for CryoSpace, we will share it all here. Please keep checking in for all of that and much more in the coming weeks and months.
