You are Captain John O'Neil, awakening from suspended animation aboard a battle damaged starship on a lost mission. You've been asleep for over 300 years, a period of time that exceeds the design capabilities of the ship's cryogenic equipment. Though physically unharmed, you suffer from a complete loss of memory. O'Neil must explore the starship, and find clues as to who he is and complete the mission. He will soon discover he is not alone, and that his ship, the Westwick, has a crew of three others. The beautiful pilot, Paige Palmer, is still in hibernation. One sleep chamber is empty, it's inhabitant, First Officer Ross Perryman is missing, and one of the ship's two shuttles is gone. And ship's navigator Alan Burk lies dead in the last chamber, glass shattered with his right hand severed and missing. Throughout the ship you notice "Bio-Loks" that require a hand print ID to open certain areas of the ship. You surmise that someone with inadequate clearance has attempted to use the ...

A Painstaking Work Of Pure Art
1 January 2011 | by soundtracklover1See all my reviews

Firstly, everyone should know that Darkstar was the decade long work of ONE single father living in the mid-west, outside of the mainstream put countless time, energy, and money into it (I've heard it's something around $400,000 of just his expenses). J. Allen Williams wrote, animated, edited, produced, directed, and even played a small role in this project. His daughter also voices one of the characters. He's responded every single email ever sent through the official website. How anybody could write some of the scathing things I've heard said about Darkstar is simply shameful on this count alone.

Having said that, Darkstar is still without question a rock-solid adventure game.

If you're a person who could not care less about the minutia of game-play and the technical side of gaming (like me), you will see a beautiful story dressed to the smallest detail with stylish visuals, a rocking soundtrack, and a deeply engaging film-noir style murder mystery.

The game is not technologically progressive, but it is up to date as far as computers are concerned. My fellow reviewer, who gave Darkstar a scathing review on account of this technical nonsense, even had the audacity to complain about this and simultaneously whine that he had to install a newer version of QuickTime to play (indicating his old one must have been EXTREMELY outdated).

Don't be fooled by what that moron says about the game, as EVERY SINGLE review I've read has praised Darkstar. One even said, "...Darkstar is one of the best indie games I have ever played in my thirty years of gaming." Quite a different tune than our little savior was whistling...

Check out Darkstar if you're into story, visuals, music, or simply art. If you just want to shoot things or just ramble technical bullshit, avoid it at all costs for we don't want to hear your arbitrary complaints.
