Dark Matter – Gets Pulled Off Steam, Refunds Being Offered


InterWave Studios has gotten its action game, Dark Matter, pulled off Steam due to an abrupt ending.

Valve posted this note on Steam:

Currently there is a known issue at the end of the game. The developer is aware of the issue and they are working on a patch as a solution.

Dark Matter is a 2.5D side-scrolling survival horror game, set in a derelict spaceship besieged by a sinister alien presence, and infested with deadly parasites. As the Ensign, you must explore fetid hallways and abandoned facilities, scavenging for parts and blueprints, expanding your arsenal to up to four deadly weapons and freely customize each to fit your combat style against intelligent, reactive enemies. Dark Matter delivers a hard-hitting take on the survival horror genre in deep space, with a heavy emphasis on tactical combat and exploration.

GOG is offering refunds to those who bought the game before October 21.

Did you purchase Dark Matter? What did you think of the ending?
