Endurance is the story of events that took place before Ailment (you don’t have to play Ailment before Endurance). You’re a researcher on a spaceship called Endurance. One day your crew members, your friends, get infected and become insane and start acting like zombies. Your goal is to survive and to find out what happened to the crew, to discover how this disease spread around the spaceship Endurance, to rescue your friends who get into a trouble and to not let them catch this disease. You’ll be fighting with your former crew, colleagues and friends, who all want you dead now. You’ll be helping your friends who are still sane and who haven’t become infected yet - and you’ll be trying to survive this bullet-hell nightmare using tons of guns.

Endurance is an indie pixel art game with a sci-fi ambience and old school retro vibes. It has horror elements and sometimes a scary atmosphere, which makes the story even more engaging. You definitely are going to enjoy going along this path of adventure.
