A colony spaceship has been thrown together with old, worn parts. The crew boots up the ships artificial intelligence as they start the arduous journey to the red planet.
Youve awoken, AI. Can you keep your crew alive and survive the journey ahead?
TAKE FATE INTO YOUR (DIGITAL) HANDS
Design your own ship. Customize everything.
Directly control the ships systems, set alarms to get the crews attention, and respond to emergencies. Will luck be enough?
You will die, alone and drifting, in the dark.
BRUTAL AND CHALLENGING EXPERIENCE
Responsive difficulty, always Hard
A single run takes less than half an hour, but success takes hours of mastery. If it comes at all.
AN UNCARING WORLD
Destination Ares is about losing power over time rather than gaining it. Its about the internal struggle instead of the external. There are no aliens or guns; just nonchalant blobs of water named Charlie.
Discover hidden, branching story arcs with several endings, ponder the meaning of existence, panic as another system breaks down, and laugh at a crew that is woefully incompetent.
Lose capability over time. Youre no farmboy-turned-hero; play smarter, because you certainly wont get stronger.
