Global Game Jam entry Emerald floats through Kickstarter space

Emerald, a game about exploring a spaceship in zero-gravity, was originally conceived during the 2013 Global Game Jam, but has since drifted through the cold void of the Internet and landed on Kickstarter. Creator Nick Yonge seeks $5,800 (Canadian) so that Emerald can release February 13, 2014 on PC, Mac and Linux.

The Kickstarter page for Emerald describes the game as "Thomas Was Alone meets Analogue: A Hate Story meets System Shock, but without any gravity." Players will float through a damaged spacecraft, repairing systems one-by-one, while simultaneously rediscovering who you are and how you got there via flashbacks.

Sounds like a jolly, carefree romp where nothing could go wrong, right? Right?
