For long has the humanity been constrained by limits of human body. Most have accepted the imperfection of flesh, but some sought for liberation. To pursue the dream of creating a post-human being – to achieve ideas of transhumanism – is the driving force behind H+ Corporation. Within its facilities technology and homo sapiens became one entity. An organism devoid of humanity’s biological weaknesses.

We board the spaceship Purity-02 – prime complex of H+ Corporation.

Research vessel Purity-02 has turned into a nightmare you must survive. It’s now a deserted, deadly trap.

Well…almost deserted. Phantaruk, a long-forgotten creature from ancient mythology, is roaming the ship’s corridors.

If that’s not bad enough, you’ve been infected with a parasite that’s wreaking havoc with your body. You must find and use medical syringes to rid yourself of toxins.

You must also engage in stealth as you try to discover what’s happened by reading notes left by the ship’s crew. And don’t forget to look for batteries for your flashlight.

So keep the infection at bay, unravel the mystery, escape Phantaruk and find a way off the ship. Your only goal is to survive.

In development for two years by Polyslash, Phantaruk will launch this August on Steam for PC (and possibly Mac and Linux). Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are also under consideration.

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
