OverviewOverview

Observation puts you on a space station to solve a power outage and find missing crew. However, here you play the role of the SAM, the System Administration Maintenance artificial intelligence software, rather than human protagonist. Your limited view, due to panning cameras and restricted interactions, make this both unusual and intentionally creepy.
