Personal Rocket - Demo
A downloadable game for Windows and Linux
"Paranoids are not paranoids because they're paranoid, but because they
keep putting themselves, fucking idiots, deliberately into paranoid situations."
--Thomas Pynchon, Gravity’s Rainbow
Six months ago, Cole Fisher was fired from his job as a computer engineer at Cosmic X, a corporation devoted to the betterment of the human race, the pursuit of world peace and eventual space conquest. The reason? He found out what they’re really up to. It’s quite obvious, you know. They’re trying to take over the world.
Since then, Cole has been holed up in his apartment hacking his way through endless labyrinthine connections, gathering as much data as he could to expose the biggest conspiracy in human history.
And now, Cole has had a surreal vision, a religious experience, a close encounter, call it what you like. A Mysterious Messenger has told him it’s time to act and bring down Cosmic X once and for all. Or at least that’s his take on it.
"Personal Rocket" is a tale of paranoia and loneliness, the evils of capitalism and too much web surfing, the material world and the Occult universe. Your typical postmodern blues.
We are two devs, Falzone (dialogs & story & edition) and me, lunafromthemoon (programming & pixel art & story), from Argentina. The music is from Lisergishnu and Soft and Furious.
This project has been a long time in development and we are happy to show a first playable demo, that comprises about half the game. We hope to have the full game soon, but for now it's an uncertainty.
Enjoy and please report any bugs!
