    Project Firestart is a gaming history milestone establishing the gameplay mechanics and elements that constitute the survival horror genre. Set in 2061 aboard the research vessel Prometheus players assume the role of special agent Jon Hawking and investigate the fail of Project Firestart, a genetic engineering experiment to create a strong workers species enduring the conditions on Saturn's Moon Titan.

    Project Firestart release date:
    - C64: July 1989
    - Windows PC (fan-made 3D remake): 2006

    This longplay is showing an exemplary playthrough of Project Firestart with the "good ending". It's rather unlikely to fully explore the Prometheus and all of the story and get the "good ending" in one playthrough, rather one has to use discoveries from failed playthroughs to achieve a smooth swift playthrough that due to scarcity of ammunition unfortunately can't show everything. Please keep this in mind when watching, or even better: get Project Firestart and play yourself :)
