About the Story

The Crew Journey to the Pale Planet
What could be sweeter than going on an adventure with friends?

The Crew is a very short interactive sci-fi horror story with hardly any puzzles.

Age recommendation
Possibly PG-13. This game is meant to be scary and gross. If you don't feel like being creeped or grossed out, don't play it. And especially don't complain that it wasn't scary enough!
Other than that, there's no swearing, no nudity, drinking or drugging.

Hell is only a word. The reality is much, much worse., November 2, 2021

Tiny sci-fi horror, with some of the tone of the films Sunshine and Event Horizon. Arriving close to your destination planet after a long-haul space journey, you notice that things may not have gone exactly as planned. Start cheerily, then things get grimmer and grimmer. I saw three of the four endings, all perfectly bleak.

A micro-story in space with growing horror, November 9, 2021
by MathBrush
Related reviews: less than 15 minutes

This is a fairly short horror story set in space.

You wake up in a food storage area of a ship with all the food running out. You have to exit and explore your ship. The general feel is uncertainty, terror, and wistfulness.

It's a small game, only 4 locations. The writing has a nice creepiness.

Overall, it felt a little spare, a little far in the direction of minimalism, especially the final room.
