The first game from Three Zero One studios, headed up by Adam Orth and Omar Aziz, puts players in a unique predicament. As (presumably) the only survivor of a terrible accident on a space station, you've got to find a way home... from hundreds of kilometers above Earth. The journey will be challenging, and your mettle will be tested, but Adr1ft is about more than returning to the safe confines of the planet below.
