You play ION, a young exploration unit on a mission to secure natural resources. When you crash-land on an alien planet your ship is almost completely destroyed. Not only do you have to survive in a strange new world full of dangers, but to have even a hope of escape you must find a way to contact your home planet for help. With only your ship's A.I. for company, you set out to explore your new home. On your journey you encounter ANI, a small, stranded service unit who identifies as female. ANI is the first to admit she's a bit mad, but she is also a valuable resource, and it soon becomes clear that there will be no escape without her. And so, the two of you begin a journey that neither of you is prepared for, on a planet where even the laws of nature seem not to apply. A journey in which ION and ANI must face the strangest of all possible challenges if they are to have any hope of living to tell their own story.
The game can't really be rated good or bad. This would be too simplified here. Games are absolutely a matter of taste, just like music, movies etc. br>Therefore first of all my subjective opinion about the game:
I played it through and... found the first 2-3 hours VERY good
Designs, music, sound, levels and systemics (farming, crafting etc)
From the ice level it became a bit too 'cold' for me - the effort of the landscapes decreased in my opinion from then on.
Pretty also - so well known from several adventure games - the last level became very dark.
Surely part of the story -just ask me why it's like that again and again in these games?Could still be sun and nature in the end. . . . ups id subjectively
difficulty increases so I had to watch Youtube LetsPlays several times to get ahead. But it was always possible and interesting. br>
Therefore - also because it is really something original - I can recommend it.
+ idea and implementation
+ music, language sound
+ increasing difficulty = motivating
+ requires patience while solving some puzzles = good
- last 2 levels very dark and simple (ice world)
- slightly too long night cycles (one sees, but little)
