Repairing crumbling space stations. Procuring essential products on the black market. Avoiding spies and secret police. As routine missions slowly morph into something more insidious, a terrifying secret will come to life – a secret the Collective would do anything to keep hidden.
Total Alarm combines narrative adventure and resource management with a star-spanning science fiction setting and a retro-future style. A once celebrated top-class engineer, you’ve been sentenced to menial work on the fringes of settled space. Your crime? Wrongthink, just one of the many violations that can prompt the Collective’s harsh reprisals. In fact, you’ll want to avoid the least slip in your efforts to keep the lights on and air flowing through the deep-space derelicts you’ve been tasked with maintaining. Only vigilance will keep you from the ultimate punishment: a short walk out of an open airlock.
