Ten Tales from the Records of The Adamant Gambit

Eight-Red City Museum of Spaceflight

The Adamant Gambit's thousand-year journey has long fascinated and frustrated scholars. While none debate its historical impact, little documentation survived the generation ship's early grounding days; we are left trying to piece together a story from re-used and re-made artifacts, decaying machinery, and contradictory and incomplete family legends. The last remaining survivor of the journey, the ship's own intelligence AMM-NET, has been famously quiet about what, if anything, it remembers of the journey.

However, the ERCMS is thrilled to announce that AMM-NET has broken its silence, and allowed the museum access to a selection of its records of the journey. Under AMM-NET's supervision, our staff have meticulously created ten interactive experiences so visitors can experience life during the Adamant Gambit's journey. We are thrilled to welcome the public to participate in this groundbreaking new exhibit, where they will be able to perform routine ship maintenance, visit the ship's library, cook traditional Adamant Gambit meals, and more.

This new addition to the museum's permanent collection is now open.

If you're just looking to play the original games, they're each available online here.

The Adamant Gambit was created by Emma, Rose, Sean, and Carrie.

Trying to run the game today and getting a strange error message - not sure if it’s an issue with my machine, a compatibility error, or a Windows bug.

Loved playing these games when they came out, btw!

oh thanks for the heads up! We're looking into it now... Very weird 


Looks like if you grab a new download it's fixed now!

Ah! Thank you very much - will let you know if we have any issues. <3

This looks really interesting I have to admit.  I've been told that you can finish the whole collection in a day, so ten dollars is a very steep price. But that is just my opinion.  However I am very intrigued

The games in their original form are all available here for free! If you enjoy them, paying ten dollars for this collection will get you the handful of bonus features noted above, as well as the satisfaction of supporting the four of us directly for our work. Many people have seemed to find that worth it, but we understand if it feels too steep!

Hope you give them a try and find something interesting there. :)
