game release date for PC:
Stasis is an isometric adventure dark science fiction game developed by a small team from South Africa.
In Stasis, we assume the role of John Maracheck who wakes up in his room in a research facility. The problem is that his family is gone and there is nobody to be found around. The only sign of “life” are flickering monitors and working computers. The protagonist has to find out what happened in this place and find his loved ones. It is no easy task, though, because the laboratory hides many mysteries and dangers.
At the first glance, Stasis seems to be a typical adventure game – the player traverses subsequent locations, searches for items and solves puzzles. The developers introduced a few curious elements, however. The first one is isometric view, which is rather unseen in the genre. The second one: the protagonist can die.
Stasis boasts really nice graphics and an interesting level design. The whole is decorated in rather cool tones to boost the feeling of seclusion. During the game, we are accompanied by a specific, toned down music, which adds to the atmosphere of isolation and emptiness.
