Story

According to one theory, Earth's moon was formed by collision with another planetoid early in our solar system's history. This theoretical planetoid is known as Theia, the mother of Selene (the moon) in early Hellene mythology.

The theory states that Theia would have been completely consumed in the collision, its mass integrated with Earth's.

Why, then, in the outer reaches of the Oort cloud, where astronomers expect to find only comets and isolated bodies of ice, has a planet been found whose composition exactly compliments planet Theia of the Giant Impact theory? Almost a light-year away from the Sun, it hangs on by a mere slip of a gravitational tether, and would certainly have been long lost to the system were its orbit not almost immeasurably slow.

Wherever it came from, it was the last beacon of hope for White Horse Enterprises, a sluggish corporation whose dewy-eyed business ethics made it uncompetitive in the corrupt, overpopulated world of 2072. They established a mining facility on Planet Theia as a showcase for their progressive, philanthropic business practices. In the words of White Horse's CEO: "This venture will go forward, and it will establish a precedent that only an act of God can supersede."

The venture seemed doomed for bankruptcy until a survey drone uncovered what appeared to be an alien artifact, deep under the planet's surface. Desperately needing to capitalize on the discovery, the admins have planned an investor's gala in the P. Lowell Executive Chalet, a small luxury resort with a stunning view of the mining installation, where the artifact will be unveiled to the public.

... And now, for some reason, you've just woken up on the floor of your sleep quarters. You have no recollection of the last week, and your co-workers have turned into monsters. Your only guidance is a droning automated announcement system and the clues your colleagues left behind before losing their minds.

Welcome to Planet Theia. It's always dark out.

So it's been 2 years.

Here is another project I started if any people are interested:

http://rpgmaker.net/games/8323/images/

The idea was that it would be a "normal" RPG using default systems, and thus take less than a decade to finish, before starting into a more "serious" project. Because time and the inevitable fizzling of determination are the great enemy of RPG Maker.

Nevertheless it took about 14 months to put out the first chapter out of 6.

Yes, an official demo finally released! Since this is Gibmaker we're talking, this game has to be good.
wow downlading now cant wait to see what this game is liek sounds AWESOME story kinda reminds me of terminator i forget which oen though.
I just completed the teaser and I must say, nice work! I was not fond of the turn-based style at first but I got used to it. What I liked the most though is how much replay value there is and how every play-through is unique. I hope that you complete this game.
Man i completed Longing Ribbon and must say you are a man. I see you inspired totally by a system schock 2 i totally love SS2 too. Very good atmosphere and skills work but sorry mechanics of game i do not like. I think game should be in real time not in system like is now cause it's frustrating...and atmosphere of emergency is disapheared...in this style of gameplay anyway i subscribe but hope this game will be in real time. Very good idea and this is so SS2 style YES !
Why haven't I seen more of this?
For some reason when I first saw the screens for this I thought of the original Shadowrun...

Yeah, the smokes are stupid the way they are. Recovery tubes are for after you die.

After reading the "notes on the current download" section, I'm hesitant to download this even though I really want to try it out.

Is it worth downloading this demo, or should I wait for something more... complete?

Also, would it even be worth reviewing it, when it clearly isn't in a state where a review would be appropriate? perhaps a preview would be fitting, but RMN has no function for such things yet!

No, don't bother downloading, considering in a few days (hopefully) I'll be putting up a new version of the teaser demo anyway. No longer than the current one (in fact it's shorter, since I cut a whole bunch from the first chapter. :P) but a few of the game systems are being revamped, and there's also more pretty stuff.

!!!

Awesome. I'll wait for that, then.
A very promising project!

Nice atmosphere, nice graphics, nice scripts... by the way, who maked the scripts?
You?
Hey sweet, a gibmaker game. I'll just be checking this here out..
Being a big fan of the *Shock series this struck my heart when I first saw the "Medical Hypo" icon in a screenshot

Downloaded it, played it, got addicted before my wife was able to pull me away from the computer

*drool* I begin to fantasize about a RPGMaker System Shock/Rougelike sideproject...

2 thumbs up!

Yes! I can't tell you how often I've nerdily fantasized about wielding an argon suspension laser while walking down the street. And btw this engine was actually first developed to be an indefinitely-expanding rougelike game.
"Rougelike"? you mean "ROGUElike" aren't you?

I like System shock too, set discrepancy can be compared as a System-shock like,
But this game have defaults, and SD have his own too...

/Nonsense Talking/

Yes. That is correct.

SD is a huge rip-off of System Shock 2! Well, in a lot of ways.
Hm... your new demo have an error...

"Script 'Z - Game_Room' line 166: TypeError occured.

WHAT THE HECK.
When did the error occur? During gameplay or right at the beginning?
