Adam Orth’s ADR1FT Lands a Publisher

on April 4, 2014 11:20 AM

ADR1FT, a non-violent, first person story about an astronaut recovering from disaster has been taken on by publisher 505 Games. The company responsible for Payday 2 and the upcoming sequel to Grid Defense.

The title is being developed by Three One Zero, a studio headed by Adam Orth, former member of the Xbox One’s design team and subject of internet wrath after a twitter fiasco about the, later scrapped, “always-on” feature of the next-gen console.

“I’m very happy to be partnering with 505 Games for ADR1FT” said Orth in a press release. “From the very beginning, Ian Howe and his team have passionately understood the game. They have empowered us with the freedom to explore and create something special with ADR1FT, both traditionally and with VR technology.”

The game’s subject was inspired by Orth’s personal experience in overcoming the calamity of his online infamy. The game describes itself as a first person experience.

“Floating silently amongst the wreckage of a destroyed space station with no memory and a severely damaged EVA suit, the only survivor struggles to determine the cause of the catastrophic event that took the lives of everyone on board,” says the game’s description. “The player fights to stay alive by exploring the wreckage for precious resources, and overcomes the challenges of an unforgiving environment to repair the damaged emergency escape vehicle and safely return home.”
