Observation

Downward Spiral: Horus Station is a game developed by 3rd Eye Studios. The studio has been established in 2016 and houses developers from companies such as Remedy Entertainment, Unity Technologies, Bugbear Entertainment, RedLynx and Moon Studios. This unusual team consists of developers of titles such as Alan Wake, Halo 5: Guardians, and Ori and the Blind Forest.

Plot

The player assumes control of a researcher sent to a derelict space station with the task of studying it and discovering its secrets. The developers have given up traditional means of narration – the plot is conveyed by the cues found in encountered rooms and environments, as the game does not contain dialogue or cut-scenes. The plot consists of careful study of rooms, linking the dots and telling the rest of the story to yourself.

Mechanics

Downward Spiral: Horus Station can be described as a first person perspective shooter, but this denomination does not fully capture the essence of the game, as the game also sees us thoroughly explore encountered environments and solve puzzles. As the action takes place in zero gravity, the players can travel vertically and horizontally without any limitations – there is nothing barring you from flying e.g. up to the ceiling.

Aside from us, the station contains various machines, for example drones. Most of the time, these devices are not friendly towards us, so we need to protect ourselves using various tools found during the exploration. You won’t find real weapons, but a welding torch or a nail-gun can prove to be a good replacement in times of need. Interestingly enough, the developers have enabled an option allowing you to remove any dangers completely, turning the game into a laid-back adventure focusing only on studying the secrets of the abandoned space station.

Game Modes

Downward Spiral: Horus Station offers a cooperation mode for two players. Moreover, we’ve received access to PvP and PvE modes, including Deathmatch, Horde, and Survivor for up to eight players.

Technical Aspects

Downward Spiral: Horus Station offers atmospheric visuals that can be viewed on both the monitor as well as on VR goggles – the game is compatible with devices such as PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality.
