Ambitious Sci-Fi Social Sim Human Orbit Debuts Teaser Trailer
Although 2014 might be winding down it doesn’t mean that there aren’t some interesting titles on the horizon for 2015. One of the games worth keeping an eye on is Human Orbit from Autelia LTD. This indie title asks the question “What if a sentient AI had access to the digital lives of an entire society?” and then hands you the reigns of said AI in order to find out or yourself.
The developers have released a very brief teaser trailer to showcase some pre-alpha footage and what is on display is already intriguing. What we do know is that the game is set aboard a remote space station that is orbiting a distant planet. Apparently there are plenty of mysteries about the purpose of the satellite and alien planet to uncover, if you can tear yourself away from the lives of the crew.
The game will allow you to take control of a droid in order to explore the station and you will also have uninhibited access to the station communications network. This allows you to discover emergent stories and according to the developers you will even be able to take control of the station and those aboard it if you want to.
Human Orbit is the debut title for Autelia LTD, but with an experienced team consisting of contributors to big titles from EA and Eidos Montreal to Media Molecule we are expecting great things from them.
