Developed by Epsilon Games, Destination Primus Vita – Episode 1: Austin is a first person space puzzle adventure game with a deep focus on narrative and character. This is the first release from Epsilon Games, a studio consisting of former Ubisoft staff including an executive producer and lead character artist.
Destination Primus Vita will feature six episodes, each one set from a different character’s perspective on board the interstellar ship Beaufort. Taking place in the year 3044 after the Earth’s water has been stolen by a nefarious alien race known as ‘The Shatters’.

Speaking of the launch, Anne Gibeault, Episilon Games Creative Lead and author of the tie-in comic and novel trilogy said: “This episode is just the start of our star-spanning sci-fi saga. We’re ready to share this universe with our players and hope they empathize with the threats Crew 121 faces, whether external and alien, or internal and very human.
Destination Primus Vita – Episode 1: Austin is out now on PC and Mac, and will be released onto PS4 and Xbox One in coming months.
