It's called Argo and it's by Flatlined Games. The reason I wanted to talk about this game is because, if you haven't noticed, One of my favorite themes for a game is sci-fi or space. The following is the bit of story that enticed me into looking more into this game:
After a few moments, you come to your senses. The nausea and splitting headache are now familiar, as is the smell of the cryostasis coolant that just was drained from your Pod. Around you, other crewmembers are awakening.
But wait... what is this place? This is not the Waking Room of the ship you were put to sleep! What happened ? Could it be that our transport was hijacked by organ traffickers and our cryotubes stored here ?
As the rest of the humans awaken, the central computer broadcasts a message on the P.A. system: "Station Argo central systems. Xeno presence detected. All personnel proceed immediately to Escape Pods."
The lights change colour to further stress the emergency.
First, the location change, now Aliens ?What the...
- "Chief, where are we ?"
Your team has awoken, and is reporting to you.
- "Don't know, don't care. You heard this. Let's find the Escape Pods and leave this place, stat!"
Now if THAT'S not enough to get you in the mood about the game, let me tell you a little bit more about some of the things it features.

So, Let me finish this up with a few things. I did try to contact them for a review copy to write about. They did in fact get back to me but unfortunately there are no more review copies available. I'm not doing this PSA for them as part of a deal or anything either. Even though I cannot directly review the game I felt the need to share this one because... WOW! Just look at it!
The last thing I'd like to point out is that the game is ONLY about $33! Shipping will be applied after the campaign ends but is estimated to be between about $11 and $18. So really, you NEED to check this out if you like Sci-Fi, Space, Aliens or Survival.
The BEST part?
IT'S ALREADY FUNDED! So go back this game and let them know the Kentucky Bored Gamer sent you over, and when you're done there go check out the other awesome games on their site!
As always, Thank you very much for reading and take care! :)
