About Space Rift- Episode 1: The player becomes part of the story

Earth has been devastated entirely by a destructive meteor shower, thus forcing humanity to emigrate to Mars. Humans were enslaved by the organizations WEYSS and PANDORA and carve out a miserable existence on the xeric red planet. Players slip into the role of the veteran pilot Casey, who takes on the hostile organizations in order to liberate humankind from their suffering on Mars. Radio transmissions, newscasts and the interaction with the fondly designed non-player characters on the base station continuously add new thrilling details about the on-going conflict and also reveal pieces of background information.

Space Rift NON-VR - Episode 1: Free humankind!

Space Rift NON-VR - Episode 1 provides a unique and immersive gaming experience. This motivates the player to advance the story autonomously and to put together newly revealed pieces in the puzzle. Concurrently, the space ship evolves into being the player’s favorite companion - not only in connection with the quest to free humankind, but also in the course of exploring the whole galaxy. The particular segments of the playable outer space were designed individually by the level designers and therefore offer a vast amount of variety - also thanks to impressive visual effects.

Space Rift NON-VR - Episode 1 is available on Steam at a discount of 20% for the time being (USD/ EUR 7.99, GBP 5.59). After the discount action the price will be USD/EUR 9.99 (GBP 6.99). The VR version of the game can be added to a reduced price if you buy the games in a bundle.
