An entry in the AIF Minicomp 2011
Plot synopsis Edit
The year is 2367. The USE Last Horizon, a deep space mining and cargo freighter is on a mission to a distant asteroid. The crew take turns doing active shifts, spending the rest of the 2 year mission in cryosleep, a state of suspended animation.
You are the Chief Security Officer on the Last Horizon. You had a shift on the outbound journey, and are expecting to have a second shift, near the end of the journey home.
Unfortunately, events are about to occur which will awaken you from your cryosleep earlier than expected...
A Director's Cut was released two months later without the Minicomp's size restrictions.
