The truth is darker than space.

The Fall of Lazarus is a first-person sci-fi mystery adventure from No Wand Studios that takes place in the not-so-distant future. You’re a crew member on the USSC Lazarus, an interstellar transport vessel with ties to the mining industry. You’ve signed up for a mission to a distant mining colony.

But when you emerge from stasis, you’re alone except for Hybris, the AI who commands the ship. Your memory is gone and the ship is adrift.

Your only choice is to try to discover what’s happened. As you explore, you will experience a series of traumatic events related to your personal life. You’ll be beseiged by visions, dreamlike recollections, strange noises and apparitions. You’ll no longer be certain what is real and what is not.

The Fall of Lazarus features immersive storytelling and diverse puzzle-solving. The mystery of what’s happening is the basis of the Lazarus gameplay. The player will gather clues and details scattered throughout the ship to reach a startling conclusion.

The game is being crafted with Unreal 4 and will be released on Windows at a date TBD. Meanwhile, don’t forget about the Kickstarter campaign


The Demo

Directly from No Wand Studio:
The Fall of Lazarus: The First Passenger is the auto conclusive prologue and demo of The Fall of Lazarus. In this little adventure set in the year 2180 you will play as Caleb Rogers, a Gen-Ethics (an audit firm focused on controlling the normative and quality of criogenic, clonation and genetic alteration processes) who wakes up in the USSC Lazarus against his will.

The First Passenger is a little slice of the final game where we showcase all the playable mechanics of the full game and also works as an example of the narrative we want to play with. You can play a whole level of the USSC Lazarus out of the five levels will include the final game, every one of them highly detailed and full of objects and terminals to interact with while playing the main story. But we wanted you to enjoy this little stand-alone experience separately if you want to. This is only the prologue with another protagonist but we highly recommend you to stay tuned and, when the day comes, enjoy the full experience.

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.
