Back in 2009, Red Herring Labs released a free Flash game called Morningstar. The studio is now upgrading the game and porting it to Windows and Mac as Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock. This will be an overhaul — not simply a remake — of the original.

You are Powell. You’re aboard the merchant vessel Morningstar on what’s supposed to be a routine mission.

The ship becomes damaged and crash-lands on a seemingly desolate planet known as Deadrock. You’re the only crew member who isn’t dead or severely injured.

It will be up to you to repair the Morningstar and escape the planet. But how?

You discover the remains of another ship; one that had been larger and better-equipped than the Morningstar. All onboard are dead by decidedly unnatural means.

What is causing ships to crash here, and why? Is it perhaps an unknown force or some hidden alien civilization bent on destruction?

As you explore Deadrock looking for answers, you will find haunting HD landscapes and graphics, and new, optimized puzzles and scenes. The game will also feature a new, streamlined interface.

Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock will include a remastered soundtrack as well as over 30 minutes of original music. It will also feature an extended storyline, full voice acting and gripping sound effects.

This atmospheric, first-person sci-fi point-and-click adventure by Red Herring Labs is set to launch February 17, 2015 on Windows and Mac.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
