App description: Zarya - 1 is a survival text based quest with elements of science fiction, horror, and occasional humor. In this game you will be able to alter the story by making choices, creating your very own adventure.

If you liked Alien, Dead Space and Lifeline - you'll love this.

THE STORY. In 2021 humankind received a distress signal from the far side of the Moon, and immediately sent four brave people to investigate its source. You will be monitoring the astronauts and make decisions that will directly impact the story and the characters. Each choice may lead you closer to - or farther from - the truth.

- Mind-shattering atmosphere, a mix of sci-fi and horror in the veins of Alien and Prometheus, spiced up with the occasional joke
- Communicate with the astronauts in real time
- Influence the story by making your own decisions
- If you have to lay aside your device, the team will send you a notification if something happens
- There are multiple endings, including happy ones :)
- You can rewind the story and make another choice if the mission ends in a disaster
- What separates this game from other text quests like Lifeline, are the awesome photos that the team sends your way while exploring the source of the signal

Can you unearth the truth and solve the mystery that our Moon is hiding? Download Zarya - 1 now!

Hello World!!!

We're a small team of three (Your Story Interactive) and we share a passion to stories in any format. With proud we are happy to announce that we have released our first game today - ZARYA 1.

Youtube link | Pop Up

ZARYA-1 is an interactive fiction (IF) game that takes place on the far side of the Moon. You are tasked with supervising a team of four specialists in an effort to locate and explore the source of a mysterious signal. Your decisions will matter - but the consequences aren't always clear, and sometimes disaster will happen. Every choice you make will give you a slightly different perspective on the events that will unfold - and with it, another grain of the truth. Will you be able to piece together the whole story?

The game is currently available for FREE on these platforms:
iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1227198092
Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...com.ysi.zarya1
AppleTV: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1227198092

PC and Mac versions are coming soon.

Would love to hear what you guys think about our first game. Any kind of feedback is welcomed.
