Sci-Fi Adventure Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock is Preparing to Crash Land on a PC Near You

On the heels of the recently released superhero comedy Supreme League of Patriots (it’s on my review to-do list, so stay tuned!), Phoenix Online Publishing has announced a partnership with Red Herring Labs to launch the studio’s first-person point-and-click sci-fi adventure Morningstar: Descent to Deadrock. The game is slated to release at a price of $9.99 for PC/Mac on February 17th via Steam, Humble Store, and Phoenix Online Store among other digital distributors.

Here’s a synopsis and feature list to set the scene:

Crash-landed on a desolate, alien planet, what should have been a routine work-for-hire job for Powell has become a deadly mission to save the merchant vessel Morningstar and her crew. With one man dead and the captain gravely injured, Powell is on his own to repair the ship and find a way to escape the strange gravity well of the empty planet they’ve landed on. If the situation weren’t dire enough, the only signs of life on the planet are the remains of a much larger and better equipped ship and her crew, all dead, and not by natural means. What—or who—brought down these ships and is killing their crews? Why? And can Powell find a way off-planet before he shares the same fate?
