At the farthest edge of the explored universe, the research ship Xanadu slumbers in orbit around a mysterious planet. Her systems remain active but there has been no message from her crew for months. Now a lone operative has been sent to wake the Xanadu and bring her home to Earth.

Spirits of Xanadu is an atmospheric exploration game set aboard a deserted starship in an alternate 1980s. It draws inspiration from classic sci-fi films, novels, and games to create an immersive and highly interactive environment, featuring puzzles and FPS elements in the service of a unique and layered plot.

Key Features:

  • Three distinct endings
    You get to decide the ultimate fate of the Xanadu.
  • Discover the truth
    Find out what happened to the crew of the Xanadu with fully voiced audiologs, as well as various company and personal documents and e-mails.
  • Explore the Xanadu
    Non-linear gameplay and narrative with complete freedom.
  • Hot robot action with first person shooter combat
    Avoid the ship's security system and battle several different types of robots in order to take control of the ship.
  • Fully interactive environment
    Inspired by the immersive environment of games like Deus Ex and System Shock 2, open every drawer and interact with nearly every object. And yes, you can flush toilets.
  • Optional 'Peaceful' mode
    Not a fan of violence against robots? Switch to the Peaceful difficulty setting to make the robots passive, which will allow you to explore the ship, absorb the story, and solve puzzles at your own leisure with no pressure.
