Description of Earthrise

In Matt Gruson's first adventure game, you play an astronaut / scientist who is rudely awaken from cryo sleep by the ship's alarm. Explore a deserted space station overtaken by weird aliens and avert an asteroid's crash collision with the earth.

Overall, a great adventure game reminiscent of Sierra's AGI classics (Police Quest 1, etc.) The game is fairly long and has a tough time constaint (the station will blow up if left alone), but the puzzles are logical and fun. Two thumbs up!

Really enjoyed authoring this game, back when you didn't need a team of 50 people and $2M to make computer game. Assembly language to create the graphics and sound -- you had to know how to talk to the chips back then. Programming down to the metal is a lost art.
