Interfacing! In! Space! - J.U.L.I.A.: Among The Stars

Don't say 'reboot,' she might not like it.

It's taken me no small amount of time just to work out what J.U.L.I.A.: Among The Stars is (no thanks to the title - meaningless acronym AND subtitle? Come on now). Contrary to screenshots, it's a full adventure game rather than a hidden object one. The plot follows Rachel Manners, an astro-biologist, who wakes from cryo-sleep to find she's the only member of her expedition still alive. Because it's a video game, the ship's also damaged and the titular AI is temperamental. The game's actually a remake of one from 2012, which Adam had a gander at, funded through IndieGoGo.

Anyone out there played the original? The change list to the new version is pretty extensive, improving everything from music to the main character model as well as adding an easy mode for some puzzles. There's a whole host of new content too, with Czech devs CBE Software saying there's been a 60% increase in play time. More info on that over on the game's website.

You can grab a demo from early last year here. CBE also did a series of blog posts about their crowdfunding journey and time as developers. J.U.L.I.A.'s already gone through Greenlight, so eyes on Steam come September 12th if you're interested.
