That’s right, the prequel to January’s Dead Space 2 is coming soon, October 13th soon! The unusual thing? The game actually isn’t a game, but an interactive comic!

You follow an engineer named Franco as he attempts to fix some malfunctioning equipment, and you repair the items with mini games. Of coarse, this wouldn’t be a Dead Space title if everything went according to plan, but we will leave that for you to find out! I’ll give you a hint though: there are definitely going to be some troublesome Necromorphs up in his bidnizz.

The game/comic retails for 400msp ($5) or is free if you preorder Dead Space 2 at select retailers.
