Chances are you were busy watching The Golden Joysticks on Friday afternoon and discussing the ‘performance’ of the Bombshell Belles so missed the news that Caretaker from Xiotex Studios has achieved Greenlight status on Steam after only two weeks.
Heading to Oculus Rift, PC Mac and Linux. Caretaker is no “sweep ‘em up” but a sci-fi adventure like no other, combining exploration, environmental puzzles, stealth elements and a deep narrative, set inside a colossal, alien – in all senses of the word – structure.
Alone and confused, your only guide is the game’s narrator, voiced by David Hewlett, popularly known for his role as Dr Rodney McKay in Stargate Atlantis. Navigate through the game’s multi-levelled world to access its secrets and achieve your primary objective. As an unwelcome intruder, you will need to outwit the structure’s myriad defence system – destruction is an option, but at what cost?
