Lyon, France, May 12th, 2022: Indie developer and publisher Tin Can Studio proudly announces the worldwide release of their highly anticipated Early Access space simulator Tin Can: Escape Pod Simulator. It is said that in space, nobody can hear you scream, and players seeking the ultimate thrill are encouraged to download and check out the official 1.0 release of this popular simulator. In this exclusive PC title where disaster strikes, you are challenged to survive in an old Medusa Class escape pod with nothing more than your skills, limited knowledge of technology, and a detailed component manual at your disposal.

Official Launch Trailer:

Combining the best of survival and simulation, Tin Can offers an incredible amount of detail. It features micromanagement of your vital escape-pod systems, a realistic simulation of resources, and a procedural generation of events and failures, making each gameplay session unique. Lost in space in a fragile pod where only its thin hull separates you from the space void, your life depends on your ability to discover ways to mend and repair your pod’s broken systems while staying sane and healthy until rescue can be called if they answer at all… Alone, trapped in space, with nothing more than your heavy breathing, rising panic, and oncoming terror, how do you prevail and overcome asteroid fields and nebulas. You are solely responsible for every component and system on the pod. Dismantle, swap, fix broken items, and study the detailed onboard manuals for guidance.

To coincide with the official launch, a free playable demo is available that contains four unique tutorials, allowing you to learn the basics of the game. With the fantastic support of the community at large, Tin Can has evolved during Early Access to become a phenomenal gameplay experience with added content and features in the official release. A dedicated VR version of the game is in the works and will be released later this year.
