The game features a different take on the heroine Celeste Blake, who ends up in bit of a predicament when a mission goes wrong and she is marooned on an unfamiliar planet where she doesn’t know who she can trust. Celeste will be forced to make tough calls and experience things out of her comfort zone if she ever hopes to escape the planet. More than just Celeste’s physical safety is left in the balance as sinister forces aim to slowly take control of her mind.
The world of Evindium Prime offers a bleak, futuristic setting where Corporations are king. Interstellar travel has now been made possible, but technology on most planets hasn’t advanced too far past our own. The gap in lifestyle between the rich and the impoverished is more present than ever in some places and gangs fight for control in the underbelly of the city.
Obtaining the Scene Guide: Once Celeste has visited the Hyper Market in Downtown to go shopping, then returns and decides how she is going to deal with the thief she spots, every three visits she will be presented with the opportunity to purchase the Scene Guide.
This is not a full walkthrough, but will help.

Much like the game that this entry takes inspiration from(Tales of the Drunken Cowboy), Evnindium Affair goes above and beyond the medium it is presented in, showing that HTML games can indeed be done to a professional level. Everything in this game breaks the mold of HTML text games in one way or another, which is a strange thing to hear but believe me, you'll see why if you play it.
I especially love the serious gameplay goals presented in the game. It's rare to see a game with such serious goal points presented to the player. You have a set of concrete goals like "Repair your ship, hide your friend from the authorities, get a permit, etc" and an array of ways to get the job done hidden throughout the world.
Great game, 10/10 and only getting better each update!
Very entertaining game.
I enjoyed almost every part of it.
It already offers a ton of content and doesn't feel empty at all but I can't wait to see even more.
I completed everything I could find and had a blast. Encountered only several bugs but none of them gamebreaking.
As was said before it feels very professionally done, I like most of the graphics (would be great if there was even more of them), story is engaging and fight (or no fight) with the submission is enjoyable.
Good job and keep it up.
My favorite game. I love the pictures and the story. Every event has such detail put into it and the actions you decide really feel like they carry weight (even if they don't) 10/10.
This is great game, it stands out ffrom a lot on this site. Most importantly, it seems like a real, professional game, most HTML games on the site are barebones and simple, but the creator really went all the way on this one.
Great game. The intro is a bit odd, particularly with the shift in perspectives, however, the game as a whole is well written and engaging. I thought the visuals added a lot to the experience and was a bit disappointed to find that they didn't accompy every scenario. It's understandable, though.
I'm eagerly anticipating the next update!
