Dark Matter – Story Intro

Here is the first of the two updates we promised last week! We have spent a lot talking about the game, and how it’s put together, and what people can expect of gameplay. It’s time to focus a little on the story, and one of the game’s two main characters. In this video, the Companion tells his story up to and including the moment of the Ensign’s awakening, when the player picks up the reins of the game. It’s an insight into some of the events that lead up to the Endeavour’s current, ruined state.

Seekers are the deadliest enemies you will encounter in the world of Dark Matter. They are not the most armoured, nor are they the largest aliens in the game. Seekers don’t fly, and they don’t even have a ranged attack. What makes them a formidable enemy is that unlike the other members of the Scavenger hive, Seekers were infused with all the cunning necessary to track and destroy the hardiest species in known space. One of the Seeker’s favourite ploys is playing possum. Scavenger hordes are not known for their neatness, and often leave a trail of dismembered carcasses in their wake. Since funeral rites don’t feature in their culture, many of those carcasses...
