Remember ‘Dead of Winter’? Dark stories from the frostbitten zombie apocalypse? Welp, now it’s on plane. A space-plane even. Gen7 is the story of the 7th Generation of colonists en-route from earth to our next homeworld and there’s something in the water this time around. Something’s not quite right: Could be space radiaton, could be an unwholsome dubstep fixation, either way you’re in for a pretty hectic time. Using the same fantastic crossroads narrative system, Gen7 puts you in a claustrophobic hothouse where there’s nowhere for the blood to drain…

Koi also features a solo play mode if you feel like taking a meditative swim on your own!
