Personal Rocket - Demo and trailer available!
« on: 31 Mar 2019, 17:17 »
Hi, everyone! We’re a little studio called Orbis Tertius, founded by two Argentinian expatriates currently leaving in Europe, and this is our first AGS game.
And a demo and trailer are now available!

Personal Rocket

"Paranoids are not paranoids because they're paranoid, but because they
keep putting themselves, fucking idiots, deliberately into paranoid situations."

--Thomas Pynchon, Gravity’s Rainbow

The Story, or what the fuss is all about

Six months ago, Cole Fisher was fired from his job as a computer engineer at Cosmic X, a corporation devoted to the betterment of the human race, the pursuit of world peace and eventual space conquest. The reason? He found out what they’re really up to. It’s quite obvious, you know. They’re trying to take over the world.

Since then, Cole has been holed up in his apartment hacking his way through endless labyrinthine connections, gathering as much data as he could to expose the biggest conspiracy in human history.

And now, Cole has had a surreal vision, a religious experience, a close encounter, call it what you like. A Mysterious Messenger has told him it’s time to act and bring down Cosmic X once and for all. Or at least that’s his take on it.

Personal Rocket is a tale of paranoia and loneliness, the evils of capitalism and too much web surfing, the material world and the Occult universe. Your typical postmodern blues.

"Orbis Tertius"? What about Tlon and Uqbar? ;)

(I know we should stick to English to prevent the forum from descending into Babel-like pandemonium, but I just want to say real quick que aquí tenéis a una fan a muerte de Borges  ;-D )

The trailer looks super cool! I really don't like playing demos though, so I'll be keeping an eye here for the release  :)

Muchas gracias!!  :wink:

And yeah, we stole the name from Borges, that mad genius. It also means "third world", so, us coming from Argentina, it seemed fitting  :smiley:

Thanks for your support!

Just for my curiosity, you are argentino-italiano or argentino-espanol?

I'm mostly argentino-italiano, from my father's side, though I believe I have some Spaniard/creole blood from my mother's side.

Added the link for the AGS game page: https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/games/game/2357/  and you can comment and review the demo there, too, just like user Wiggy did (thanks, Wiggy!)
