Dang this is also really good. That first big time jump is like a punch in the gut. despite the fact that I will never go to space something like this is honestly a real fear of mine.
Please Do Not Panic
This story was made for Scream Seas, the theme was adrift. I was inspired by "The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet" by Becky Chambers, one of my favourite books. In it, there is a mode of transport where people use a very small trip and wormholes to travel. I thought it would be interesting to explore what would happen if that trip went wrong.
It's very much not a "Jump Scare" horror, it's much more a "That's such a bad situation" horror. A sadder horror?
I didn't have as much time as I would have liked for this, so while the story is OK, I would have liked to add more to the presentation. I was able to use shaders, but I couldn't get rid of the jagged lines the shaders produced!

Don't wanna spoil so I'll try to be clear without talking about the story. At some point I made an important choice and the screen turned black. Is the game over ?
I cried. Like a lot. WOW this was amazing
Very Well Done! Gave the story a go, and very much enjoyed it.
