Nova Drifter

As Jim D. Astros you attempt to make your way home to the floating colony, Hasiera as it moves further away from you. Standing in your way is the harsh vastness of space, a limited oxygen supply caused by damage to your ship and the ravenous Zormites, disgusting creatures who hunger for the nebulite ore that powers the hyper-drive. The broken hyper-drive has left you in the far out reaches of the galaxy and the unreliable nature of the ship’s condition only allows you to aim your vessel and launch yourself forward, one hyperspace jump at a time. Your radar is equally uncooperative and only functions in the moments after the jump. Resources are limited so it is imperative that you gather ore as you travel. Can you get home before you suffocate out in space, cold and alone?
