The storyline: you’re awakened inside a stasis chamber, confused and disoriented. Breaking out, you find yourself to be inside a gigantic alien spacecraft. Who the masters of this ship are is unknown, but disrepair and dust translate to your grasping mind that this ship is long since derelict and how you got there, you have no clue. As you wander through its vast corridors, you discover that many parts of the ship have been overtaken by an ecosystem of alien vegetation and animal life, while yet other sections of the spaceship have utterly collapsed and long since ruptured outwards into the cold confines of space. As you make you way throughout the gargantuan ship, you make a terrifying discovery: you realize that as you’re hunting for answers, there are somethings hunting YOU. As you struggle to survive, you will be faced with a melee of horror and creatures unlike any you’ve seen before, with danger around every corner in this frightening yet awesomely beautiful alien world.
It will take all of your mental and physical strength to overcome the unusual creatures and puzzles this derelict presents, while you uncover the truth about yourself, your past, and your future.
Abducted is a horror/science fiction game delivered in true cinematic fashion. Real-time shadows slowly creep along corridors, dust motes flutter through the light cast from flashlights; the hint of things other than yourself are glimpsed throughout the levels whilst full 360 degree sounds heightens your experience and make the hair on the back of your neck flare up. Noises come from far away or right next to your ear in the dark, jolting you into either fight or flight, life or death. At a moment’s notice, danger can come from the left or right, OR from above and below as your character roams through changing 3D environments where the laws of gravity suspend themselves in lieu of weirdly alien physics.
Entering what seems to be a globular arboretum, you will see different flora and fauna wrapped along the inside of the great sphere, vertigo threatening to overwhelm you as you drop into one of the vegetated environs. Later, crossing into one of the many decayed, collapsed areas of the alien vessel, you’ll experience zero gravity in isolated pockets and have to deal with possible pursuers/enemies as well. Fights in zero G are almost unavoidable as you try to maneuver yourself through the gravitational pockets to, one hopes, safety on the other side. Imagine traveling through one of the many “nest areas”, places inside the gigantic ship that have been overtaken by alien denizens that now call it home; a single misstep, an accidental item dropped or even a simple breath might awaken the horde and bring them down upon you, teeth and claws slashing and rending. You might even have to make your way through one of the flooded sections, thigh deep in years of muck and overgrowth, hiding who knows what behind every vine, every bush. Diving into its depths, you swim for your very life as aquatic lifeforms snake their way to you, a new meal for the offering.
Abducted offers all this and much more, plunging you into a vast realm of the truly weird, taking you on a rollercoaster ride of intrigue, suspense and sheer unadulterated horror as you try to survive its labyrinthine depths.
