According to Iceberg Interactive, InterWave Studios’ Dark Matter has infested both Steam and , with other digital versions (and the retail versions, in England and Germany) hitting tomorrow. Want it? With the 10% launch discount, that’ll be £11 or so.
Dark Matter is perhaps best described as Dead Metroidvania Space, insofar as it’s a side-on Metroidvania-alike game in which you play the Ensign, forced to fight your way through a ship infested with lethal alien parasites. Expect darkness, scavenging, weapon construction, and more darkness.

Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, getting very angry at people in Dota 2, or playing basically anything that’s not a hardcore simulation or sports game. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
