Indie horror adventure Stasis reaches full funding on Kickstarter

With only five days left in its epic 33-day Kickstarter campaign, 2D/isometric/horror/adventure game Stasis has achieved full funding, edging just over its $100,000 goal. The game, developed by South African brothers Christopher and Nicolas Bischoff, takes inspiration from classic point-and-click games such as The Dig, as well as space horror films like Ridley Scott’s Alien.

Now that it has reached its target, PC gamers can look forward to exploring the derelict space station known as Groomlake when the game is released sometime in Fall 2014.

To celebrate this achievement, the Bischoff brothers have released a new teaser trailer that feautres the point-of-view of the game’s fictional Cayne Corporation.
