Albedo: Eyes From Outer Space is a 60’s Sci-Fi pulp-inspired first person adventure game where you take the role John T. Longy, a night watchman at a partially abandoned space and time research facility called Jupiter. During one routine work night, you are faced with a fight for your life, when you suddenly wake up in the basement of Jupiter, and must work your way back up while facing horrifying alien-like creatures that dwell in between.
Explained as an FPS hybrid, Albedo combines shooter action, adventure style puzzle solving, and exploration into one immersive, creepy experience. Between shooting your way through, you’ll have to solve logical, and item-based puzzles to proceed through the colorful, scary sci-fi environment. To create as immersive of an experience as possible, all cutscenes are done with in-game footage from the player’s perspective. There’s said to be over 8 hours of gameplay spread across 12 explorative levels.
Developed by one person, Fabrizio Zagalia (a.k.a. Z4GO studios), Albedo: Eyes From Outer Space will be entering Early Access on Steam beginning October 3 for PC and Mac. Official release of the game is set for February 2015.
