The Station, a studio based in Vancouver, recently announced their first title, a sci-fi mystery title coincidently called The Studio.
The Station puts players in the shoes of an astronaut sent to space to “study a sentient alien civilization.” Players will have to make some tough decisions based on the discoveries they make, and these decisions will “decide the fate of two civilizations.”
