The Starship Damrey Now Available on 3DS in Europe


Level-5 have today released The Starship Damrey via the Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo 3DS in Europe costing £7.19.

The Starship Damrey comes offering  a new twist on sci-fi suspense from Level-5 who are well known for their text-based adventures. It game sees Designer Kazuya Asano and writer Takemaru Abiko join forces again to pioneer new challenges in a disquieting adventure set in the darkness of space.

In the game, players awaken to discover that they are trapped in a Cold Sleep capsule aboard the titular Starship Damrey, with no memory of who they are or how they got there.  The game offers no tutorials, explanations, or hints and pushes the player to use self-discovery and experimentation to find their own way through the experience.  An inconceivable truth awaits players willing to discover it.

Speaking on The Starship Damrey,  Akihiro Hino, President and CEO of LEVEL-5 stated:

“The works of Kazuya Asano and Takemaru Abiko as a duo have helped shaped an entire genre in Japan, and their pioneering  of new genres and play styles are the kind of innovations LEVEL-5 are proud to support and foster in the GUILD series of games,”

Those who also have Liberation Maiden, Aero Porter, or Crimson Shroud via the Nintendo eShop and have save data from any of the three titles on their Nintendo 3DS will receive exclusive “linked content” that includes a special scenario providing deeper insight into the events that unfold aboard the ship.  This scenario can only be unlocked at the end of the player’s journey.

Kazuya Asano, creator of the game added:

“Before the project was given a formal name, we called it ‘ALONE.’  Who am I? Where am I? How much time has passed? What am I doing?, We created the game with a focus on synchronizing the player with the protagonist in a situation where neither one of them knows the answers to these basic questions. I hope you enjoy this state of the unknown.”

Takemaru Abiko, writer of The Starship Damrey followed stating:

“I’ve worked on many novel-style games that have been difficult to localize, but the world and the style of THE STARSHIP DAMREY is something both Japanese and Western players can appreciate, The game’s text gives players just enough to feel their way through the cryptic nature of this title, and I believe that anyone in any country should be able to enjoy this experience.”

Screenshots and a trailer have also been released. Let us know your thoughts on if you will be purchasing this Level-5 title via the comment section below.
