Dead Space is a Third-person shooter survival horror-action video game, developed by EA Redwood Shores for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows and released on October 14, 2008. The player takes on the role of an engineer named Isaac Clarke, who battles a polymorphic, virus-like, alien infestation called the "Corruption", which turns humans into grotesque alien monsters called "Necromorphs", on board a stricken interstellar mining ship.


Set in the distant future, Dead Space revolves around Isaac Clarke, a space engineer who works for the Concordance Extraction Corporation (C.E.C.), a company that operates giant mining ships throughout the galaxy. When the C.E.C. receives a distress call from the USG Ishimura (a “Planet Cracker”-class ship that destroys planets in order to extract valuable ore), Isaac and four other C.E.C. employees set out to rendezvous with the Ishimura. Shortly after crash landing, the crew is attacked by hostile creatures called Necromorphs. Throughout the rest of the game, Isaac is tasked with repairing different areas of the Ishimura while constantly under attack by Necromorphs.
