Sci-fi thriller Observation gives you control of a watchful space-station AI


From the crew behind Stories Untold

There's an inherent unease to the concept of an all-seeing, all-knowing artificial intelligence that can physically exert itself, especially when the protagonists happen to be stranded in space. The upcoming thriller Observation is exploring this trope with a twist: we get to play as the AI, not the humans.

"Players assume the role of S.A.M. by operating the station's control systems, cameras, and tools to assist Emma in discovering what is happening to the station, the vanished crew, and S.A.M. himself."

Knowing that Observation is coming from No Code, the team responsible for the memorable short-story anthology Stories Untold, I think it's safe to expect good things. Look for it on PC and PS4 next year.
