Mass Entertainment: Dark Matter Coming Out This Month
Adam had a play of Dark Matter back in July, and found himself rather taken with it. At the time it was Kickstartering itself, asking for £50,000.

The Metroid-meets-horror side-scroller is due out on Steam in the next couple of weeks.
The premise isn't exactly original - you're a surviving crew member on a spaceship filled with aliens. But it's also worth noting that's exactly the right place to set a Metroid-style horror game and I want to play a million of those every day forever. Have a weapons trailer to celebrate the news that it'll be playable soon:
