Because it matters: Dark Matter launches on Steam and GOG18 Oct 2013
According to Iceberg Interactive, InterWave Studios’ Dark Matter has infested both Steam and , with other digital versions (and the retail versions, in England and Germany) hitting tomorrow. Want it? With the 10% launch discount, that’ll be £11 or so.
Dark Matter is perhaps best described as Dead Metroidvania Space, insofar as it’s a side-on Metroidvania-alike game in which you play the Ensign, forced to fight your way through a ship infested with lethal alien parasites. Expect darkness, scavenging, weapon construction, and more darkness.
