They say in space, no one can hear you scream, but that’s not to say you shouldn’t try anyway.
As gaming giant EA, and countless fanboys around the world, counts down to the Fall 2008 release of the much-anticipated sci-fi/horror title, Dead Space, a partnership with Image Comics aims to help give a little insight into the kind of creepy odyssey we’re in for.
When an interplanetary mining crew discovers what appears to be an alien device on a world they’re preparing to destroy for ore, the crew is quickly divided as some see it as a holy sign.
Meanwhile, more and more members of the crew begin acting strangely, including one who’s left with blood on his hands and another who sees a vision of his long-dead mother.
If the video game is anything as freaky as the comic by writer Antony Johnston (Wasteland) and fan-favourite artist Ben Templesmith (30 Days Of Night), Dead Space looks like a must-buy.
