Inspired by a longing for the sciences in an 'artists' environment and some old-fashioned science fiction, Aphotica is a game about space, balance and saving all of time and space.
The Universe is in it's last moments before the fate of all is sealed by the "Big Freeze"; the hypothetical point when the Universe is spread so thinly that the temperature is below that which can sustain any life. In a final desperate attempt, a mission is put forth to try and pull the universe back together again by destroying the very "Dark Matter" that is tearing it apart. Taking control of a "Gravity Well" and a "Black Hole Generator", the goal is to use the tools at your disposal to counteract and ultimately cancel out the discrepancies before the end.
