Dark Matter gets released on Steam but is not complete
Posted on October 19, 2013 by Oscar Gonzalez

On Friday, InterWave Studios released Dark Matter on Steam and other platforms for $14.99. Since the release, gamers have discovered that the game ends abruptly after 4 hours without much of an ending.

Users on Reddit and Steam have been posting about the lack of an ending with questions on why the game was released without being complete. YouTube user Jay Xan posted his Let’s Play for Dark Matter and shows how the game ends. For those that don’t want to watch the video, once a player reaches a certain door, the screen goes black and some text comes on screen that explains what happens next and states:

“You have reached the end of the game, but there may be more left to explore.”

One of the members of InterWave Studios went to the Steam forums and explained why the game ended the way it did:

"Hello, just to answer all these questions.

No, the full story is indeed not complete yet because originally we wanted a longer game (12-16 hours) but couldnt finish it completely due to time and money (and Kickstarter failing). So, we choose to go with a 6-8 hour game instead to bring something out to the world and show everyone the world of Dark Matter. 

We are going to change the "to be continued" text to something else, to make sure this will be the end of the game as is in a clear msg to everyone."

Back in June, InterWave Studios created a Kickstarter for Dark Matter that was trying to raise £50,000 ($68,433) but ended up only with £6,227 ($8523). In August, InterWave Studios parterned with publisher Iceberg Interactive with plans to gives the game a worldwide release.
