StarOS is a very clever little retro styled horror game that’s told through a demonic operating system and the Steam Achievements you unlock while playing it.
In StarOS you have access to a cutting edge 1970s desktop computer with a mysterious operating system on it called StarOS. On the desktop you have a selection of different apps, such as a drawing app, a music app and a Teletex app. You also have a little desktop buddy called Astro and six unlockable retro games to play through. Needless to say it doesn’t take long until you work out something’s not quite right with the system. Especially if you have your Steam Achievement notifications turned on!
It’s a very inventive bit of storytelling, with a fun little desktop to play around on, six very different little games to play through and lots of little secrets to discover. The use of Steam Achievements to tell the story is particularly fun and makes it really feel like you’re being contacted by someone from without the system. Highly recommended.
