Remember Adam Orth? He’s Making A Pretty Cool Game Now
It’s hard not to remember Adam Orth. Famous for a twitter imbroglio that saw him leave Microsoft after telling gamers to just “deal with” always online systems, Adam Orth quickly shot up the ranks of internet infamy, spawning multiple memes and thousands of badly photoshopped pictures.
And now, he’s back. Except this time he’s probably not going to piss people off. In fact, he might just do the exact opposite.

Adam Orth has revealed a new game that was created around his Twitter infamy last year, named >Adr1ft. The game is a non-violent, first-person experience and has players attempting to repair a spacecraft after an accident occurs. The violent and sudden nature of this accident are meant to parallel Adam Orth’s life after the incident last year, with the player’s actions mirroring Orth’s own struggle to rebuild his online persona, as well as himself.
Players will be able to float around the space station while getting themselves filled with air, and although the game does encourage exploration it will largely be about linear progression and puzzle solving along the way. There will also be some audio logs and collectibles to help players piece together exactly what happened to cause the accident. The game will also support the Oculus Rift.
Speaking about the game and why he chose to develop this now, Orth had this to say.
“This is how I chose to, in the words of a famous philosopher, ‘deal with it.'”
>Adr1ft is being co-developed by Orth and his former partner at Medal of Honor, Omar Aziz, who left Treyarch recently. They hope to be in full production by May, and release the title next year for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
