A downloadable game for Windows

Hestia is a role play card-based game in space setting.

Year 2030. The protagonist is a spaceman from Earth, which takes part in the newest spaceship engine testing near Pluto on Hestia spacecraft. But the result of the experiment was unpredictable. The engine malfunctioned, as a result, a small anomaly looking like a black hole was created.

The protagonist opens eyes and does not see Pluto anymore, just darkness and coldness. In the next moment, they see a ship, but not from the Earth. Alien spaceship! The light beam pulls them to the ship owned by the rude and mad alien captain - a slave trader - who forces you to work in the mines. After arriving at the planet, one of the slaves, called Thrall, approaches you and offers you to escape. He provides you with basic weapons and teaches you how to use them. The protagonist and Thrall steal a spaceship, which can deliver them to the next planetary system, but no further, not to Earth.
