Microïds, the indie publisher specializing in adventure titles, and noted game designer Paul Cuisset today revealed an Oculus Rift stretch goal for the Subject 13 adventure game Kickstarter campaign currently underway. The game’s appeal for funding is on track with over 30% of funding pledged by backers just seven days into the 30-day campaign.

The game’s early supporters got a welcome surprise as Cuisset announced that he will sign all boxed copies pledged by the initial 300 backers—and additional fans can get on board with this offer with a new $60 pledge that will also include a signed boxed copy.

The newly revealed stretch goal to add support for the innovative Oculus Rift virtual reality headset adds the opportunity for players to become further immersed in the mysterious world of Subject 13. With Oculus Rift support, the game will remain in a third-person perspective that allows players to see the protagonist Franklin Fargo interact with his environment while having full control of the camera through headset tracking. This unique gameplay perspective can only be experienced if adventure game fans meet the new stretch goal—but new screenshots released today show more of the game in action.

“Each day, we see how strong the Kickstarter community is for communicating with players,” said Paul Cuisset. “We thank each and every player who has pledged. Please keep telling your friends who love adventure games to come visit our page—with your help we can bring players a great adventure game experience!”

In Subject 13, players will take on the role of Franklin Fargo, a physics professor who has become a recluse after the tragic death of his fiancée. One morning, he wakes up in an abandoned underground scientific facility with no external contact other than a mysterious voice. The voice calls him "Subject 13." As Franklin Fargo, players will interact with the 3D environment around them by collecting, using, and manipulating objects to overcome a multitude of devious barriers to the professor’s escape. Fargo’s goal is to not only set himself free but discover the true reasons for his imprisonment—can he escape from the prison of his past?

Subject 13 is currently being developed in collaboration with Microïds for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android. More details are available at the Subject 13 Kickstarter page, which will be continually updated throughout the 30-day campaign.


About Paul Cuisset:
Born in 1964, Paul Cuisset is one of the most prolific French creators in video game history. As the co-founder of Delphine Software, he worked as a programmer, a game designer and/or a scriptwriter on titles as famous as "Future Wars: Time Travelers", "The Stealth Affair", "Cruise For a Corpse", "Moto Racer" and "Darkstone". In 1992, his classic action/adventure game, "Flashback", was listed in the Guinness World Records as the best-selling French game across the globe. In 2005, he created the VectorCell studio that developed "Amy" (PS3, Xbox 360) and the HD remake of "Flashback" (PS3, Xbox 360, PC). More details about Paul Cuisset’s creations can be found at http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Cuisset

The Story

We don't want to reveal too many details on the story and plot, as progressively discovering the mystery and collecting information is a key aspect of the game. But we can tell you how your adventure starts:

Your name is Franklin Fargo. You're a former physics professor. You live a lonely and quiet life after the death of your fiance. Day after day, it's the same routine, filled with bitter memories of the life you lost. But when you wake up today, it's different. You have a headache, feel dizzy, and have trouble opening your eyes. You quickly glance around you and you start to panic. You're locked into a room that's so small that it's barely big enough to keep from suffocating. You take a deep breath, remembering what happened the day before. You were on the couch after eating your TV dinner. You were about to go to sleep. Then a blinding light burst forth throughout the whole room. You cried out in shock. This is the last thing that you remember.

Suddenly, a voice says:

"Franklin? Franklin, can you hear me?"

A shiver runs through you. Oddly enough, you aren't overcome with panic. But you do have an unpleasant, uncomfortable feeling that won't go away.

"Don't worry," the voice says.

You look around you and see a hologram light up, and the logo: "Hexatech Labs". That's when you realize you have every reason to be worried . . .


Happy Gaming!

You should check out update 11 of the Kickstarter campaign from Paul Cuisset and Microïds for Subject 13, it offers a link to download Operation Stealth for free.

Now I know what is the policy here concerning abandon ware, however if the creator himself invites you to download it, then it must be alright (surely?):

Operation Stealth

Be careful if you download. I got a e-mail and downloaded the game and it really messed up my pc. It downloaded 7-zip and when I uninstalled it none of my desktop icons would open, Even the restore wouldn't work I had to go into my safe mode. You can't delete 7-zip. Just thought I would let you know. Be careful. ???

Did you click on the yellow button that says DOWNLOAD, with a down arrow and 2 MB written in it? I did click on that.

I just downloaded it, it is a simple zip file, it did not try to download 7-zip.

I unzipped it using Windows Explorer (Microsoft own unzip app), did not need any other zip software.

What happened in your case kjos is a mystery.

Imagine, the file is only 2mb, and yet at the time this was the most impressive adventure game ever made.

But I remember also Paul Cuisset's other adventure games that truly impressed me when I was young, they were called Future Wars and Cruise for a Corpse. Years later I searched for these games and could never find them.

I think we can expect something extraordinary from Cuisset, especially now that he is linked to Microïds.

To play it you need to download DOSBox. There is a link on the download page to explain how to get it to work.

The French version works first time, it is shipped with DOSBox integrated.

I am not sure I could play these high-pixelated games today though... they used to look much better on our low definition TV sets from the late 80s early 90s.

How can I delete 7-zip without it messing up my computer?

I have no idea, I did not encounter 7-zip when downloading Operation Stealth.
I remember though that when I upgraded to Windows 8, it was not compatible I think and I had to uninstall that software.
There is a new version now I think.
Try the help forum for glitches on Gameboomers. Or search Google.
