A downloadable game for Windows

What you stumbled upon is an interactive fiction exploration game set in space. You are taking control of an unknown treasure hunter who scours the vast emptiness for shipwrecks to scrap and sell. You discover "The Hippocrates" an ancient mission ship from Earth. Experience a grim modern spin of the classical tale Sleeping Beauty.

We would love for you to take half an hour of your time and just play the game and listen to the story unfold while you play. And let us know what you thought!
