Stasis is a 2D isometric, point-and-click adventure game set in the distant future on a desolate spacecraft. John Maracheck must interact and solve puzzles to save his family, while uncovering horrific experimentation, illicit research and an ever deepening mystery.

Stasis follows the game-play mechanics of classics like Space Quest, Kings Quest, the Monkey Island series, The Dig and Day of the Tentacle. The critically acclaimed, Sanitarium - a psychological horror adventure game - used a similar graphical setup to Stasis. Stasis follows this unique visual aspect to bring this terrifying tale to life.

This 2D isometric, adventure game has brought Fallout composer, Mark Morgan on board to compose the score. Should STASIS be overfunded, Stretch Goals have been added that include an extended soundtrack by Mark Morgan and a further chapter to the game.

The Brotherhood's Kickstarter campaign to fund Statis has been successful and with three more days to go is looking to reach some of its stretch goals.

You direct John using the point-and-click interface. John must explore his environment by walking around, using equipment and interacting with the computers, machinery and the inhabitants that populate the spaceship.

Stasis also features an inventory system (Quantum Storage Device) that allows John to utilize items that may be useful. These items can be combined with each other to change their function and accomplish complex tasks. Various puzzles and problems must be solved to progress further into the bowels of the Groomlake. A rich story is weaved through the puzzles and environments while several characters push the narrative forward to a horrific conclusion.

Key Features:

  • Classic point-and-click adventure game mechanics
  • Expansive areas to explore - with puzzles that span multiple rooms and entire floors of the Groomlake
  • A compelling sci-fi story set in a rich futuristic world
  • Highly detailed rendered 2D isometric graphics

  • Mature content for 'mature gamers'
  • Full motion video cut scenes
  • A beautiful orchestral soundtrack
