The Lazarus Project



Man has reached for the stars, and beyond, but the ultimate achievement still eludes him. Now, within a geodesic dome located on a distant world, a small group of scientists have made their first strides in reaching this goal: conquering death.

The Lazarus Project is a prose-based, social roleplaying game, with elements of plotter-oriented storytelling and automated game missions. Taking the role of a newly grown citizen, players can seek out proper employment, become involved in scientific experiments or research, undertake exploration in the gameworld, or enjoy social roleplaying with other online players.

The Lazarus Project is in beta release and is currently free to play.
