- Simple, intuitive interface
- Many items to collect, not all of which can be used
- Help button
- Dark humour in a story unsuitable for younger players



Penelope Barker and Aaron S. Reid are agents of the extra-governmental Pandora Global Corp,
which works in parallel with the CIA. Unbeknown to them, they are also guinea pigs in an
ambitious and dangerous project.
In fact, the corporation is experimenting with a modification to DNA that is capable of
altering the faculties of the guinea-pig subjects, thereby granting them powers beyond the
ordinary.



Powers that are suppressed by means of an antidote (administered without their
knowledge while they are in the organisation's offices) and activated by voice command:
from that moment on, the agents act like automata, under the total control of the corporation.
Penelope develops the ability to generate dangerous energy, sending out from her hands
in a beam, while Aaron can bring about alterations to space-time and hence interact
with other dimensions.                         

Unaware of their condition, they set off on one of the missions intended to realise
"Project Apotheosis", the implications of which are unknown to all taking part in
it save Pandora Parlow, the president of the organisation.
The two agents must simply recover ancient artefacts that have carvings that resemble
maps...
When they meet their contact and his colleagues, things escalate: the money in their
possession is found to be counterfeit and they end up being taken to a place that
strongly resembles a prison and are jailed. During the course of events, Penelope
and Aaron discover that the individuals unknown to them up until that time are in
turn members of an organisation based on the same deserted island as the prison.



Now that they are locked up and no longer being administered the antidote, their
powers will be reawoken and will enable them to escape, at least from the prison:
escaping from the island will be much harder. A complete absence of equipment,
the parallel dimensions that impinge on reality and a severe lack of help, given
that the island is sparsely populated, will make the task impossible.

The demo ends with a "congratulations" style screen with your score... But nope, you cannot talk to each other off the cuff.

PS. Thanks for Midian patience as we got this thing ready for an English audience.

I finally played and finished!
I love this game.

Quality of EERY aspect is very high.
I already knew how good is the gfx of Midian Games, but here you outdid yourself, Danilo.

And also the voice acting quality is impressive!
Screen7 made a great work here!

Us too ;) but unfortunately it did not pass the GOG test. It's now sold through the Humble Widget (as are TCL & TSP now) so hopefully the next best thing? Although the websites are a bit...buggered...at the moment. I hope to have things fixed up again soon and a newer Screen 7 website with all the Humble Widgets properly integrated.

I just wanted to mention The Apotheosis Project is available now in a bundle of other indie (Steam) games at IndieGala:
