Captive is a science fiction role-playing video game released by Mindscape in 1990.
The player characters are androids (termed “droids” in the game) operated remotely by a prisoner trying to free himself. The player assumes the role of the prisoner, and the game involves visiting and destroying a series of bases on different planets.
It was released on Amiga, Atari ST and PC (1992) platforms.
Trill, the main character, is judged guilty and ordered in a space cryogenic prison for 250 years. 248 years later, he awakes, but without the memory of who he is, where he is and why he was imprisoned.
In the corner of his cell, which had doubled as a store-room, the prisoner finds a “briefcase computer” which gives him control over a group of four droids on a space ship. Now he must use these droids to find and free himself.
