Abyss Gameworks has been hard at work on its action/adventure title Tartarus for some time now. Recently, it was Greenlit on Steam, and to follow that achievement, the developer has released a brand new trailer.

In Tartarus, we will play as Cooper, a miner on the research vessel, Tartarus, located just off of Neptune in the year 2230.  When the ship’s security measures are triggered without warning, the ship’s crew must fight to reach the bridge in order to restart all systems and prevent Tartarus from plummeting to the planet’s surface. Like the player, Cooper will know nothing of how to pilot the ship or how to save the rest of the crew. Through the guidance of his fellow crewmates and a level of ingenuity, some of them might survive.

Abyss Gameworks says that Tartarus will challenge players to hack the ship, utilizing “very realistic” terminal commands. For that reason, the answer to the problem at hand may require some level of searching. Here are a few of the gameplay features that you can expect to find.

  • First Person Action
  • Immersive Storytelling with Rich and Simple Gameplay
  • Advanced Text-based Puzzles
  • Retro-Futuristic Atmosphere

Tartarus is planned to release sometime in Summer 2017. It is being developed using Unreal Engine 4 and will be available on Steam. For more information, take a peak at the game’s official website.
