Detached is a First Person Experience (FPX) game focused on rivalry, exploration and survival. Because it was designed specifically for Virtual Reality headsets, Detached will allow players to achieve full immersion within the game. As players explore a sandbox environment and solve puzzles while competing against a rival, they will experience outer space like never before.
Detached will take players on an exciting journey to the future, where mankind has finally found a way to travel previously unimaginable distances through space. But no discovery comes without a price. Pushing the boundaries of the known universe led not only to the rapid colonization of distant worlds and the establishment of mining operations in search of unique resources, but also to the expansion of big corporations, allowing them to gain unprecedented power and significance. Free from the jurisdiction of Earth governments, which are confined to our solar system, these corporations followed their own rules in exploring the universe and used their own resources and money from private investors. In this way they eventually discovered evidence of alien life on a colonized planet. However, the corporations were never able to actually utilize any alien device or technology that their explorers found…until now.
Genesis Corporation, one of two leading tech corporations, finally discovered a working alien artifact at one of their mining sites in Theta sector. In an effort to keep the discovery a secret, they began to covertly transform the site into a research and development facility, but without increasing security, so as not to alert their competitors. Inevitably the secret leaked out, and Genesis’ biggest rival, R17 Corporation, sent a small attack squadron to seize the artifact.
With virtually no defense capabilities, the Genesis mining facility was overrun in seconds. The facility chief requested reinforcements from Genesis’ main space station, though he knew that help would not get there in time. But before any rescue could arrive, R17’s sleeper agent, who had originally alerted his corporation to the discovery, activated a KDD (Kill Don’t Destroy) bomb during the attack. This was the beginning of the end for both tech giants.
In the aftermath of the corporations’ war over the alien artifact, the player will find himself the last remaining member of his faction, trying to find his way back to Earth. During his long journey, he must not only explore the area in search of supplies like oxygen and fuel, but also outwit and outrun the sole survivor of the other faction.
The player’s first choice will be which corporation to represent, and this decision will significantly affect the type of gameplay he experiences, including the story he follows, the tasks he must accomplish and the puzzles he must solve. In a game like Detached, where the intrigue is built around non-violent puzzle solving and capture-the-flag-style exploration, survival is crucial to victory.
