In our understanding of time, it is the year 20,000 BC where civilizations are about to discover galactic travel through the latest technology of their time. Earth was different back then. The deserts of south Egypt and Ethiopia are green and full of advanced technology.

Carter is a botanist at the space station Marsi-3 orbiting Jupiter. Along with his girlfriend Alex, and your guidance, they might be able to witness their civilization shifting into a higher type.

Game Info:
Resolution: 640x400 32bit
Music: Midi
Sound effects: MP3 (All self recorded and constructed)
Full Speech.

'Tardigrades' can be finished with different ways, there are two possible endings and 10s of ways to complete its puzzles. Each time the game starts is guaranteed to be a new experience due to some events and puzzles triggered randomly at any time of the gameplay. The story depends on your attitude in dialogs, tasks, choices and/or random events. So basically you'd be writing the story of the game.

The story has a plot twist and deals with slavery, secrecy, espionage and other issues that are too early to reveal at this stage of production.

Looks very promising! Has a sort of unique Space Odyssey vibe to it. Good luck with the production!

Amazing screenshots. Ancient humanity with super advanced technology has always been one of those semi-believable premises. I think Chariots of the Gods had many examples of religious artefacts that could be explained away as technology. It will be interesting to see how you handle active pyramids/ziggurats and the purpose of the various fixtures within. Good luck! You've got me interested!

Thanks AprilSkies I hope I finish it soon for you :) Your games are awesome I enjoyed them :)

Gurok: Thanks for the kind words! Maybe the 'ancients' didn't have the devices and rockets we use now, but that doesn't mean they didn't have the technology to explore space!

Thanks! I'm really curious how you'll approach the "ancient civilization" theme. And I guess I should add Anastronaut to my ever growing 'to play' list, I completely missed that one.

Would be glad to see more of your work as well  :-D
You will, there are several projects in the works. And you might want to check out the AGS Bake Sale. :) [/offtopic]
