A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

An important mission turns into a disaster. When the ISX-48 launched, nobody expected there to be such an accident with such horrible consequences.

A lonely escape pod remains and while trying to reach home, some of the mysteries surrounding the ISX-48 might be revealed.

Controlling the onboard computer of the almost broken pod, the player navigates through the vastness of space in this visual novel.

Along the way, there are several encounters that determine the outcome of the story.

Solitary Voyage is a short visual novel, that can be completed in about an hour, but also offers some replay value when experimenting with the different choices along the way.


Available for Windows, Linux and macOS.

Note: The game has been developed and tested in Windows 7-10 32 and 64bit. Linux and macOS builds are offered, but not supported. Using Windows is highly recommended to ensure the best compatibility.

This game was made for the Capstone Project in the 5-Course Game Design and Development Specialization by Michigan State University at Coursera.org.



Update version 1.0.6:

Did some minor adjustments and fixed a bug that would cause the player to be able to restart the current location from the beginning.


Update version 1.0.7:

Fixed some errors in the true (fourth) ending.

Nice game. I like the atmosphere. Its short so it leaves you yearning for more and some unanswered questions will bug me. I wish there were something I could do differently, but I guess I have exhaust all my options already.

Possible bug: When you travel to some encounter you can live that encounter again by launching engines without setting new course.

Thank you very much for your comment!

I'm glad you enjoyed the game. You're right, there aren't that many things to do differently in the game, but there are a few different endings that explain a bit more.

If I had more time I would've made many more branching paths, but unfortunately there was a deadline to finish the game.

Thanks for telling me about that bug, it's definitely not intended to be able to re-arrive at the same location. I'm currently doing some minor behind the scenes improvements and I'll fix that bug as well and upload a new version in the future.
