Hibernated [1: Hibernated 1 - This Place Is Death, 2: Eight Feet Under]

Olivia Lund has been sent on an interplanetary exploration mission by the Terran Alliance. After being in hypersleep for more than 200 years and with more than 800 light-years being travelled, her ship, the Polaris-7, crosses paths with a gigantic alien vessel and is captured by a tractor beam. Olivia soon finds out that this may not be her only problem. There is no communication and there are no signs of life. The extraterrestrial spacecraft just continues to drift through the cosmic void, something it seems to have been doing for thousands of years now.

This is a tomb in-between the stars, which Olivia has to enter to extricate herself from this interstellar trap. Io, the navigation robot of the Polaris-7, is probably her only friend now. Far away from home and surrounded by death and decay, she found the answer to one of the greatest questions of mankind. Are we alone? The answer is: yes, out here, we are more alone than ever.


First entry in a proposed trilogy. Part 1 also has a connected side adventure; Eight Feet Under.

The original C64 version was produced using The Quill. The C128 (CP/M), Amstrad CP/M, first MS-DOS and first ZX Spectrum versions were created using the PAW (via inPAWs).

The Amiga & Atari ST versions were later produced using DAAD. New versions for the Amstrad CPC, C64, DOS and Spectrum were also created using DAAD with these becoming the official release versions.

In 2019, an official version was produced using Adventuron for PCs and mobile devices, running in a browser window.

In 2021 a brand new Director's Cut was produced using the Hibernated 2 engine created with PunyInform.

I've just completed Hibernated - 1 and really enjoyed it. I have to admit I struggled at times but that's no criticism of the game, more like me being out of practice!

This one gets a 10 out of 10 from me!
