Stasis is exactly like Space Quest, except you can carry severed hands in your inventory. Wait, did we say exactly? What we meant to say is that it’s not at all like Space Quest. Apart from the fact that it’s a point-and-click adventure game set in space, obviously. Only it’s more like a point-and-click survival horror game. There are no lovable space buffoons here: just a grim journey through the ominous innards of an enormous, mostly deserted spaceship. And the aforementioned severed hands of course.
It’s also in development right here in South Africa, which is awesome. We embarked on a mission to gather all the Stasis info we could carry so we could stuff it into the magazine’s pages and bring it to your attention – and we’re so immensely impressed by what we’ve seen of the game thus far that we’ve put it on our February issue’s cover.
If you love space almost as much as you love point-and-click adventuring, you’re going to want to see this.
