Science fiction mixed with romance in a new adventure from Benjamin Rivers.

Benjamin Rivers has already told us that his indie horror title Home was coming to the Vita but in a post on the EU Blog he proudly announced his latest project, Alone with You.

Alone With You is a sci-fi game for people who love adventure, exploring and maybe even a little romance. You play the sole remaining member of a doomed terraforming colony. Your planet will crumble and implode in less than a month, and you must use your remaining time to try to escape.

The catch? There is only one escape pod left, and it isn’t functioning. Even worse, the only people who specialized in its systems are all dead from the colony’s mysterious failure. But the colony’s AI is still with you, and together you plan to get yourselves off the planet—by recreating those key colony members and learning how to fix the ship, so you can both flee to safety”

With half a dozen areas to explore and using your scanner to identify items and piece together what has happened, you can converse with your AI companion to learn more about your situation.

Benjamin went on to discuss the romance aspect:
As for the romance? Well, let’s just say that recreating your former colleagues might not be as straightforward as you imagine; they may be interested in more than just technical details. No matter who you are, you’ll be able to take a crack at love—and your choices will affect how the story ultimately plays out.”

Alone with You is set for release in 2015.
