Event[0]


A lost spaceship
628,300,000 km from Earth
The only way to get back home is to negotiate with the last crew member
A computer

That blurb from the trailer sums it up pretty nicely. It's like the aftermath of 2001: A Space Odyssey if Dave Bowman hadn't managed to disable HAL9000. At least, that's what it seems like; I don't actually have any idea what happened to the crew. Maybe it's not the computer's fault—innocent until proven guilty.

The most interesting aspect of this game is that you communicate with the computer not through a selection of pre-programmed actions, but by typing at it. And the range of things it's capable of responding to seems vast.

Join us in plumbing the depths of space and of the Turing Test tonight at 9pm ET in Event[0]!
