Alright, so lets start, I never played this game, but I really wanted to, even though it was probably horrible!
There was a video demo on a disk that I got in the 90’. In the game you operated a probe and explored a moon(s?) and space station. The space station had an organic computer that went wrong (killed the crew) and started to grow, eventually going all blob style. I remember an image of it filling a corridor with “goop”.
It was all per-rendered FMV style and looks to have played kinda like Sewer Shark. The demo video had a track that was reminiscent of Scatman John/CNC Music Factory for music. I remember a jungle scene where you had to shoot big bugs, and some creepy corridors on the space station that you had to shoot drones.
I have searched all the reto game archives and lists that I could find but haven't been able to find it, or the demo video that I played COUNTLESS times as a kid (mostly for the music). I even asked ChatGPT and didn’t get far.
It seemed a LOT like the game “The Daedalus Encounter”, but that wasn’t it. I watched the play though and none of the scenes I remember are there. And I don’t think there were any people in the game (as you are trying to figure out what happened to them).
