Answer a mayday call from a lone survivor stranded on a derelict spaceship. Use 10+ voice commands to guide your friend to safety through 5 levels of increasing mayhem all while uncovering the terrible secret behind what happened to the crew of the USS Appaloosa.

A "playable story" that is part audio book and part video game, Mayday! Deep Space will take you on a thrilling, frightening trip to the bleeding edge of science fiction -- and shock you with an unforgettable twist in its final moments.


Mayday! Deep Space was created and written by the roboticist-turned-author behind bestselling techno-thrillers such as Robopocalypse, Robogenesis, and How to Survive a Robot Uprising.

Experience 4 completely unique outcomes based on the decisions you make during the game. Will you betray your survivor? Is it worth killing another person for a chance to stay alive? Who is responsible for the atrocities committed aboard this enigmatic ship?

Mayday! Deep Space uses the latest Apple hardware to employ speech recognition that creates a personal interaction between you and your survivor. Using spoken commands, you will calm and guide a distressed survivor who is depending on your voice to live!

The derelict planetary survey ship USS Appaloosa is a treasure trove of astonishing secrets. Discover them as you explore 5 levels of exquisitely mapped decks, including the bridge, hangar bays, crew quarters, airlocks, medical bay, research stations, war rooms and much more.

YOUR SURVIVOR NEEDS YOU... will you answer the call?

This is just one of those games you know is gonna become a classic on the App Store. Even putting aside the entire voice recognition "gimmick" (which works bloody flawlessly by the way), you HAVE to check this out. It's immersive, captivating and screams originality. Not only is the voice acting superb, the sound effects instantly take these little dots you see on your screen and bring them to nightmarish life inside your head. It's a beauty to behold.

OMG, this looks awesome.

Can you play just with buttons and without the voice commands ? (just to be sureI can actually complete it, English is not my native language).

This makes for a really interesting read on the game:


The VA, concept and Metalcasket's impressions are enough to convince me; 7 days into the new year and there's already one potential GOTY - not too shabby!

Game based on voice recognition... too bad if you have an accent that is incompatible with the Apple voice recognition.
