Somewhere deep in space, on the lifeless asteroid Alpha Prime, something has gone terribly wrong… The miners were warned that the mysterious element known as hubbardium was too dangerous to excavate, but the lure of unimaginable wealth was too strong. Now, something has happened to them and it’s up to the player to save them and face an unknown threat. Armed with an assortment of hi-tech weapons and the ability to hack into the station’s own automated defenses, their mission is simple; get in, get the survivors and get out!
“We have worked closely with the team at IDEA Games to address many of the issues present in the European release of Alpha Prime,” said Jeff Giasson, Production Director at Meridian4. “We hope gamers will thoroughly enjoy Alpha Prime’s fast-paced action, whether they buy the game in stores or through one of our great digital-distribution partners.”
