Corpse of Discovery is a bold, beautiful little game. It's a first-person exploration game, placing you in the space boots of a lone astronaut on a cataloging mission for the Corps of Discovery, stationed far from their family.

The game constantly reminds you of your loved ones, showing you your children's drawings and messages from your wife while you tirelessly work to fulfill the tenets of your mission for a faceless, uncaring corporation. Calm robots and slick managers allude that, hey, maybe you'll get to go home to that family one day if you work hard enough.

Watch our gameplay video above for a playthrough of the first mission.
