  • Experience the fretful and isolated atmosphere of deep space and the fight to not let it become your final grave with a space-zen soundtrack created by Dutch atmospheric-electro duo Weval
  • Rebalanced from the original 2016 release. Easy, Normal and Hard modes offer a fair learning curve while also ensuring a merciless challenge for true test seekers
