Barath Endre's Dead Cyborg (opens in new tab) , you may recall, is a first-person, episodic, "hard sci-fi" adventure series set on a rusty old space shuttle, and one we thought rather highly of (opens in new tab) back in the day. It's taken a while, but the game's second episode has just been released, and like the first it's on a rather generous pay-if-you-want model, offering 2-3 hours of interaction, exploration and puzzle-solving for free (with the option to donate - which will go towards funding the final episode).

Episode 2 continues the beautiful robot-themed adventuring of the first installment, with creator Barath Endre once again using Blender - the free 3D modelling software with game development capabilities - to startling effect. The latest teaser trailer is below, and if you like what you see/play, you can vote for the game on Steam Greenlight (opens in new tab) .
