A downloadable game

Something’s gone wrong with your mech, and now you’re drifting alone in Jupiter’s orbit, watching the machine that’s keeping you alive slowly fail around you. You don’t have much time left. But there’s still something you need to say.

SMS is a real-time storytelling game about saying goodbye from 365 million miles away. It’s designed to be played by two participants over text message. One person takes the role of the Space player, who’s trying to get their message across before their time is up. The other takes the role of the Earth player, who has to come to terms with it.
