Finally we were able to announce the project we have been working on!

Red Matter is a story-driven VR puzzle adventure game set during a dystopian Sci-Fi Cold War. Take on the role of Agent Epsilon, an astronaut of the Atlantic Union dispatched to an abandoned Volgravian moon base on a frozen, faraway planet. Your mission: to investigate a shady top secret research project.As the adventure progresses, paranoia sets in. You’re no longer sure who you really are or who you’re working for. Use an array of hi-tech tools to decipher hidden messages and mechanisms and uncover ever deeper and darker secrets of the facility. But beware of what you may find… Once you discover the truth, will you be able to stomach it?

Regarding the setting, I have to admit that I’ve always had a fascination with the Cold War. I’ve been reading a lot about that period of time, trying to understand what was happening on both sides of the wall. I wanted to set the game in a dystopian future to have the freedom of adding technology, countries and situations but not attached to real History.

Some more recent influences to create this setting were “The Americans” TV series or the movies “The Lives of Others” and “Citizen X“, that I strongly recommend if you haven’t seen them. And a very good board game about the Cold War: “The Twilight Struggle“.

On future posts I will detail the design process I’ve been following, and some experiments I want to run. For example, I’ve run a pen and paper adventure to roleplay the story of the game with some friends. What I wanted to do was testing the strength of the story and find new unexpected ideas.
