Richard and Alice are prisoners. Both their cells have a leather sofa and a state-of-the-art computer. But only Richard's has a TV. Outside, the snow falls. It has done for some time. Elsewhere, they say, parts of the world have been rendered an inhospitable desert, the earth parched and cracked. People live in the zones now. The lucky ones, anyway.
Richard and Alice have secrets.
Created by indie PR specialist Lewis Denby and Starbound lead writer Ashton Raze, Richard & Alice is a story-driven tale about family, desperation and the weather. It tells the story of two inmates in a curious future prison and invites players to investigate the circumstances of their incarceration in a world where years of heavy snowfall have caused chaos around the globe.
