Voyager 2763 A.E.

In the far future (2763 After Earth [A.E.]), humans have fled Earth because of environmental destruction and have moved to a new planet that is far from its star (Pluto). This planet is a frozen wasteland that is extremely dark, it is assumed that the colonies on the planet have only just started appearing. Your job as the player is to find out what happened to a colony that is no longer responding to other colonies’ messages, and has gone completely dark (Voyager Base 163). Shadowy creatures native to the planet have taken over the colony and have disabled almost of the light sources in it, these creatures can be harmed by the character’s light-based rifle, the Lumos-121, and are scared of bright light sources. We incorporated the Transmission theme by making the Light Rifle able to transmit light, and absorb light. To expel these creatures, the player must kill the Queen, whose life essence is tied to all the living shadow beasts, thus ending the game. WASD to move. Left click to charge the Lumos-121; release to fire. Right click to absorb light into the Lumos-121.
