Event[0] is an atmospheric space thriller set on an abandoned tourist spacecraft floating idly 390,399,000 miles away from Earth. The year is 2012, and the human race is now exploring the far reaches of the Solar System and beyond, having begun a true colonization campaign that launched successful commercial space programs around the globe.

Apart from its unique retro-futuristic setting and detective story, the game offers a game experience unlike anything that you have ever seen. A complex artificial intelligence algorithm combined with natural language recognition and synthesis offer a next to infinite number of possibilities in Event[0]'s one-of-a-kind dialogue system.

You will build a relationship with the AI that controls the spacecraft, trying to convince it to keep you alive and stay on course. Your ultimate goal being getting back to Earth, you will discover that forming a relationship with this intelligent machine is far less straightforward than simply typing commands into a computer.

The AI is alive, it is a character with its own fears and anxieties, a dark past and a darker future that you might just get a glimpse of.
