A research spaceship reaches an abandoned planet. Nothing is what it seems here and the situation quickly slips out of control. Can the crew manage to survive and get back home? SYMMETRY is a survival management game set in a retro- futuristic, sci-fi universe. Your main goal is to manage the crash survivors and help them withstand the desolate, extremely cold environment in order to fix their spacecraft and escape. The non- obvious plot is accompanied by an atmospheric musical score and graphic design that sustains the harsh and mysterious ambience. Survivors' life functions crucial to their existence, such as eating, resting and mental health need to be taken care of. Extreme circumstances may force crew members to develop new skills like botanics or power plant operations, that werent necessary in their Earthly life. Gathering all the parts required to repair the spaceship becomes a race against time, as extreme weather conditions and life-threatening supernatural activities become more and more present. Vector graphics give the game a feeling of mystery and severity of the deserted world. Using dimmed and pastel colors throughout the scenery creates a sense of remoteness from reality and builds an unreal atmosphere of the landscape. FEATURES: Base micro-management in extremely hostile conditions Randomly assigned crew members with different skills and stories in each gameplay Different needs to satisfy: nutrition, physical condition and mental health Non-obvious sci-fi plot Ominous presence of the Symmetrical World Moral choices – collectivism vs individualism Unique vector graphics and ambient sound setting High replay-ability and various strategies to beat the game Survival game mode unlocked once the main mission is accomplished
I can't agree with the many negative ratings due to the difficulty level - after 5h and about 4 attempts I managed to build the rocket together );)
It's quite challenging and doesn't have a big story. But for currently 10€ you... get a challenging game that requires a lot of concentration. It has to be carefully considered which systems really need improvement, regularly make sure that there is enough electrical waste to repair the power generator at any time and above all check the status of its crew members every few moments and let them rest sooner rather than later. And use the pause function.
