Ben Hibburd’s review published on Letterboxd:
"Beyond the Aquila Rift" is a solid Sci-Fi short that looks and feels like a "Mass Effect" game. Three crew members on a shipping freighter are flung light years across the galaxy into uncharted space. Thankfully, they land at a space station that's also located there. However, appearances can be deceiving. Whilst the story might've been slightly predictable, I wasn't prepared for just how bleak it was. Out of all the shorts so far this is by far the most nihilistic. The animation is wonderful, the characters have personality, everything about this short was well done.
