Ever dreamt of being an astronaut? Adr1ft gives you the chance to be one!!
Ex-Microsoft employee Adam Orth’s Three One Zero studio is developing the game Adr1ft and is set to be published on PC and unspecified consoles by 505 Games. Remember 505 Games? Well if you don’t then let me tell you that they were the publishers of games like Payday 2 and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
Adr1ft is described by 505 as a “first-person experience” game in which you control an astronaut exploring the debris of a wrecked space station. With a damaged space suit, players will need to stay alive and repair an escape vehicle to leave the station.
The first images of Adr1ft, seen above, were revealed by Orth during a GDC panel last month.
After parting from Microsoft, Orth founded Three One Zero studio last September with former Treyarch engineer Omar Aziz.
“I’m very happy to be partnering with 505 Games for Adr1ft” said Orth. “From the very beginning, [505 Games president] Ian Howe and his team have passionately understood the game Omar and I are trying to make. They have empowered us with the freedom to explore and create something special with Adr1ft, both traditionally and with VR technology. It’s clear from games like Payday 2, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons and some of their upcoming titles that 505 is not afraid to take chances and give gamers something fresh and new. That’s important to us. That’s what we’re all about. We’re excited to be part of that.”
Adr1ft is scheduled for release in “mid-2015.”
