About Dark Matter:
Dark Matter is a 2.5D survival horror game set in a derelict spaceship besieged by a sinister alien presence, and infested with deadly parasites. As the Ensign, you must explore echoing hallways and facilities, scavenge for parts and blueprints, expand your arsenal to four deadly weapons and freely customize each to fit your combat style against intelligent, reactive enemies. Dark Matter aims to deliver a hard-hitting take on the survival horror genre, in deep space, with a heavy emphasis on tactical combat and exploration.
