The Fall of Lazarus is a first person exploration game set in a science fiction future. The game takes place aboard the USSC Lazarus (Unified Space Ship Companies), a ship that belongs to KR Corporation (Kross-Rübel), a company dedicated to the interstellar transport of goods and with close ties to the mining industry. The player takes on the role of the protagonist, a veteran of the Venusian wars looking to carve out a new future for himself. He has enlisted to participate in an eight-year mission to work on a mining colony. When he wakes up from hypersleep he finds himself alone on the ship and with no memories.
The player must then explore, investigate and find a way to get off the ship before the situation gets worse. Along the way, the protagonist will experience a series of traumatic events related to his personal life: visions, dreamlike recollections, strange noises and apparitions that mess with his head and make him question what is real and what is not.
The Fall of Lazarus is a deeply narrative video game. You will have to solve the puzzles and explore in order to advance in the story. The universe and story will unveil branching along the scenary, objects and documents left behind by the people who lived in the Lazarus at some point. In addition if you search and connect the dots maybe a greater puzzle will be revealed and the darker truth around you will become brighter.
