Don’t Be Late for Tardy!

If you’re up for a story about war, emotions, love, ineptitude and passion for old computer devices, you’ve come to the right place

Meet Ramto. He’s always dreamt of traveling to outer space, and he’s finally done it. But he has a big problem.

He awakens on the spaceship only to discover that the rest of the crew has disappeared. And if that’s not bad enough, Ramto has no specific skills. In fact, as described by the developer, he’s a bonehead and a dolt.

So why is he even on board? Well, he’s a stowaway. See? Bonehead. Dolt.

As Ramto, you must learn to operate complex mechanisms; discover how, exactly, the spaceship works; determine what happened to everyone else and, above all, get home. In essence, you’ll have to become an astronaut, pioneer and inventor.

And oh, yeah…you’ll have to discover the expedition’s horrible truth. Piece of cake, right?

You’ll have plenty of riddles to solve as you interact with your surroundings. You’ll push buttons, flip switches, pull levers, discover secret panels and more.

Tardy requires you to think. But don’t let that scare you away. Thinking can be fun.  Further, One Wing Cicada assures us that Tardy will involve no pixel-hunting or anything else that’s annoying.

So, will the Dolt be able to save the day? You can find out starting tomorrow, March 8th, as Tardy is released for Windows on Steam.

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.
