This is the prologue for an interactive branching narrative game taking place in the far reaches of space and time.

Converse with the unlikely inhabitants of our galaxy. Use tools, applications, and learned information to discover your place in the cosmos.

You made it.

At least, if you can read this, you made it.

We've been waiting for you. I bet you have questions.

I'm sorry, but I won't be able to answer your questions, not yet.

These messages have taken roughly a day to reach you.

It will take your messages a day to reach me, as well.

Don't bother.

Sound on.

10-20 minutes to play through.

This was so much fun! I love the idea of the probes having a nice little interstellar community.

If you continue development, where will you be posting the rest of the game?


just played it, very interesting! I really hope you continue development!

Thank you for playing, and for your kind comment~!

I also hope I continue development n_n;

does this draw inspiration from 17776?


It very much does~

The Secret Life of Probes is an idea I've had for a while, but reading 17776 made it easier for me to do a little bit of writing (something I'm not very experienced with) for this game~
