Dark Matter is a 2.5D side-scrolling survival horror game, set in a derelict spaceship besieged by a sinister alien presence, and infested with deadly parasites.

Awaken from cryosleep, the female protagonist (Ensign) traverses the mysterious and empty vessel, the “Endeavor.” Silent and curious, she scours and searches the ship to figure out how to escape the unmanned vessel. Lead by the voice of an omnipresent AI, she eventually discovers various tools and equipment to unlock areas of the ship, a la every game ever classified as a “Metroidvania.”

A crafting system is in play as coming across health and ammo crates doesn’t occur here. This system allows the player to create various items, from med packs to gun modifications to the typical array of weapons. Blueprints of modifications can be found along the way, in addition to specialized ammunition. Resources can be mined by killing creatures and they exert the substance of “fullerene” or plainly the stuff enabling creation.
