What is SYMMETRY about?
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.
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.
