Rezension zum IF-Comp 2007 (German)
Du bist die Sicherheitsverantwortliche an Bord eines Raumfrachters, auf dem außer dir nur ein Ingenieur und der Pilot Dienst tun. Eingekapselt in eine kleine Überwachungszelle beobachtest du von dort aus alles, was vor sich geht. Mit einem unerwarteten Druckabfall auf der Brücke wird eine Reihe von Ereignissen eingeleitet, die dich auf deinem Posten gut beschäftigt halten.

You are in a single enclosed room in a space station with a variety of buttons that control video (including recording and playback), temperature, self-destruct, and so on.
Each playthrough is short, but it will take a lot of work to get it right.
The game is funny and enjoyable.
On a side note, I always thought the cover art was a hunched monster with its head on backwards, but I think it's actually a brain-like monster on an asteroid.

Best sci-fi games by Ant-Fan
I'm looking for games from the sci-fi genre. I would prefer classic-style games, even if they're not classics (such as 'Across The Stars') because one of my all-time favorites is Planetfall, but really, anything goes.
