Description

What would you do if you found yourself trapped on an eerie space station with nothing but a computer? Play as the hacker Alex and help your partner Sam uncover the horrible truth of the facility. It doesn't take long until you have to ask yourself who Alex really is and if your reality is what it seems to be. Gather information, navigate, talk and hack your way through five chapters of this atmospheric, fully-voiced text adventure. Code 7 is being developed and published by Goodwolf Studio for PC, Mac and Linux.

History

Code 7 started as an one-week prototype during the Master Studies at the Cologne Game Lab and was published for free in early 2015. The idea quickly developed to become an episodic text adventure with professional voice actors. In September 2016 a remake of the original prototype (Episode 0: Allocation) has been released, together with the launch of the Kickstarter campaign. The developers, Kevin Glaap and Zein Okko, successfully raised ~16.000€ to continue working on the four upcoming episodes.
