About the Story

How does it feel to be the only one on a lonely planet?

Foreign Soil is part sci-fi, part surreal story about - well, about what, really? Probably you can judge that better than I can. If it were a film, it would certainly be a French-Korean co-production.

The puzzles in the game are not very difficult.


Age recommendation
Although not particularly serious overall, the game is NOT suitable for younger children, as there is swearing at times and references to alcohol consumption. Also, you can die in about 10 different ways and although this is not permanent, it is usually described in very unpleasant terms.

Off-Site Reviews

Wade's Important Astrolab
IntroComp 2020 review: Foreign Soil by Olaf Nowacki
In the striking opening scene, the PC is born, messily and with plenty of fluid, of a sarcophagus on an alien planet. Her apparent task: to establish a colony from scratch. It seems a bit pessimistic on the part of her parent civilisation to have preserved its colonists in containers that are basically elaborate coffins, but sarcophagi are certainly cooler than glass tubes. Thus the game starts out well.
