In Matt Gruson's first adventure game, you play an astronaut/scientist who is rudely awaken from cryo-sleep by the ship's alarm. Explore a deserted space station overtaken by weird aliens and avert an asteroid's crash collision with the Earth. Overall, a great adventure game reminiscent of Sierra's AGI classics (Police Quest 1, etc.) The game is fairly long and has a tough time constraint (the station will blow up if left alone), but the puzzles are logical and fun. Two thumbs up!
