There's A Brilliant New Interstellar Text Game

Along with the underwhelming nature of the British Summer and England's habit of crashing out on a penalty shoot out, it's safe to assume that any video game based on a film will be awful

A pleasant exception to this trend has just been published by the marketing machine behind the DVD launch of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

Rather attempting to copy the lavish visuals of Nolan's sci-fi, the adventure takes the form of a retro text-based game. In a "choose your own adventure" style, you must explore a distant planets as part of a team looking to further humanity's existence, sending out probes to find a compatible new home. 

It's surprisingly in-depth, with help on hand in the form of the PLEX computer system (and a reliable FAQ). 

You can start your own adventure by clicking the image below.

Interstellar

And yes, you're right. It's not as good as GoldenEye. But nothing ever will be. 

Interstellar is available on limited edition 2-disc Blu-ray Digibook and Blu-ray from 30 March
