The indie sci-fi game Event  now has a release date, September of this year. The game was heavily influenced by 2001: A Space Odyssey, as well as many other notable (even called essential) sci-fi movies. In it you are alone on a ship with an AI named Kaizen. Kaizen doesn’t want the player to leave, it’s not malicious like some AI sci-fi lovers have experienced, just extremely lonely, so it doesn’t want to allow the player to leave. Gamers must use language in order to convince the AI to help you accomplish tasks, and reveal more of what is happening. In addition to the interesting gameplay mechanics the game has also been praised for it’s sound design. In order to fuel the sense of isolation there is no soundtrack, instead just ambient noise from the ship. Those that have seen the game have already been singing it’s praises for being unique, well designed, and how well influenced it is by sci-fi giants. While the exact day is still unknown it will be launching September of this year, and you can pre-order it now. If it lives up to expectations the game might turn into a must for both fans of indie games as well as sci-fi.
