ADR1FT is the story of Alex Oshima, an astronaut who wakes up floating silently amongst the wreckage of a destroyed space station with no memory and a severely damaged EVA suit leaking oxygen.
As the only survivor, your mission and goals in ADR1FT are to stay alive by exploring the destruction for precious resources, uncover the truth behind the catastrophic event and repair the damaged emergency escape vehicle in order to return home safely.
ADR1FT immerses the player in a beautiful, solitary and mysterious science-fiction world while telling an intense, personal story through irresistible gameplay mechanics, player-driven environmental exploration and a single, game-spanning audio puzzle.
ADR1FT is a journey through action, consequence and redemption that leaves the player contemplating the parallels between the choices they make within the experience, the choices they make in their own lives and how they affect the world around them.
