About the Story
In this small game, you play as a cargo driver of a one-person spaceship, The Shooting Star. While en route to Io, your ship collides with something and you crash inside the landing bay of an alien ship. Your future is about to change.
Starcross in miniature. In the middle of a routine flight to Io, you find yourself on a collision course with a large and distressingly organic spaceship. Only by mastering its systems can you reach home again. Very short - feels like an intro to the promised sequel - but well-crafted.
-- Carl Muckenhoupt
Sea of Night is a rather short, but quite enjoyable mini space saga programmed with TADS. It covers all of 14 locations, and although space scenarios are not usually my favourite type of adventuring, SON is such a small game that it easily held my interest to the end.
