In 1,000 years the human species will be extinct. Remembered only as a mythical creature from ancient times by a civilization of intelligent machines who have risen in their place. A mechanical civilization in search of their own Creator, meaning, and ultimate purpose. But in their quest, these sentient technological beings risk awakening an age-old conflict that could disrupt order and jeopardize the entire galaxy!

This is the universe of Gears of Eden, an independent space exploration and adventure game in production by Cubit Games now available on Steam for PC. Gears is currently free for registered alpha testers and streamers (the game features interactive Twitch chat integration – allowing chatters to boost players with turbo speed, or zap their battery among other commands), and is also available on itch.io, GameJolt and IndieDB.

Players in GoEcontrol a simple machine lost in the depths of space that has recently awoken with self-awareness and intelligence. “Exploring and mining as you search for clues to solve the mystery of your unexplained existence, while unravelling the underlying purpose and meaning of this vast machine civilization” is what Ben Sledge, filmmaker (The Recursion TheoremBeneath the Mask) and founder and CEO of Cubit Games, says drives the player forward at the beginning of the adventure. Gearscombines elements of base-building, resource gathering, exploration, and an engaging narrative in a single player experience. The result is a relaxed game that allows you to progress at your own pace.

Gears of Edenis quickly gaining attention. Earlier this year, Gearsappeared at PAX East and garnered over 2,000 registrations for alpha testing. New testers who want to secure a free key are encouraged to sign up at https://gearsofeden.com/enroll/
