Narrative Sci-Fi Puzzler Destination Primus Vita – Episode 1: Austin Now Available on PC and Mac

MONTREAL, Canada – Aug. 16, 2018 – Destination Primus Vita, the episodic first-person space puzzler adventure crafted by Epsilon Games, a studio consisting of a former Ubisoft executive producer and lead character artist, and published by Green Man Gaming, introduces its first episode today on PC and Mac. The game will release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the coming months.

In 3044, Crew 121 takes off to Primus Vita to reclaim Earth’s lost water centuries after the aliens known as “The Shatters” stole it. Each member of the six-person crew has a role to play, whether it be a scientist, military operator, or communication expert.

NIM, the A.I. of the interstellar ship Beaufort, designs dreamscapes for each crew member while in cryo-sleep to preserve their mental acuity before the showdown with The Shatters on Primus Vita. These mental reconstructions pull from their personal histories between the crew and integrate tests and puzzles designed to strengthen both their logical and emotional intelligence. Dialogue choices affect the interpersonal relationships of the crew and reveal hidden truths.

Each of Destination Primus Vita’s six episodes unfolds from a different character’s perspective, though each person’s story is intertwined in different ways. Austin Blair, a quantum physicist working to find a way to confront the Shatters, serves as the protagonist of the first episode. Though she never wanted to join this mission, she feels protective of her younger brother, Coby, Crew 121’s lieutenant. Will her fierce sense of familial responsibility be her undoing, or her greatest strength?

“This episode is just the start of our star-spanning sci-fi saga,” says Anne Gibeault, Epsilon Games Creative Lead and author of the tie-in comic. “We’re ready to share this universe with our players and hope they empathize with the threats Crew 121 faces, whether external and alien, or internal and very human.”

Destination Primus Vita - Episode 1: Austin is now available on PC and Mac in English, French, German, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, and Russian from Green Man GamingSteam and other leading retailers. The “Come into Play” comic“I’ll soon meet with you” comic, and Episode 1: Austin soundtrack can be purchased separately. The Deluxe Edition containing all of these items at a 10% discount is also available for purchase.
