Darkest Escape

Albertina Sparrhult and Daniel Johansson presenting Darkest Escape at the Gotland Game Awards 2007

Darkest Escape is a game played entirely without visual feedback. With surround sound headphones the player is tasked with navigating the complete darkness of a powerless space station, trying to find out what has gone wrong and how to fix it before they run out of oxygen. … as it turns out, they might not be alone in the dark.

The astronaut is wearing an EVA suit with thrusters, which the player control via joysticks built into the arm rest of the arcade.
