offering a space oddity where you attempt to make the grade while sitting in a
tin can far above the world. They call this "a chilling survival simulation of

Tin Can is a frightening realistic survival
experience where your ship's systems are simulated down to the component level!
You are lost in space in a fragile pod where only its thin hull separates you
from space void. Your challenge is to discover ways to mend and repair your
pod's broken systems while staying alive and healthy until rescue can be called
if they answer at all… How do you fix an oxygen generator that malfunctions? How
do you deal with the atmospheric pressure and out of control temperature? And

Tin Can offers an incredibly detailed gameplay experience with extensive
micromanagement; more than a dozen interconnected systems are part of your pod.
Each has its specific function and poses different problems to tackle. You need

the detailed onboard manuals for guidance.
Tin Can include cosmic events that strike your pod and impacts your chance of

your vision will blur; your breathing will get out of control, and wrong actions
may cause unexpected unconsciousness. Maintain your health and stay wary of your
life-saving health bars. Can you survive until
