60 Parsecs!, the space based follow up to 60 Seconds! will be launching on PC via Steam on on September 18th for $14.99/€14,99 with other platforms to follow at a later date.
As you might have guessed the game gives you just sixty seconds to grab whatever you can from your space station before it explodes, and then head off in to space to find a new home for your motley crew. On your way you face incredible dangers such as a pizza from an unknown dimension, communists, and soup shortages.
Each playthrough has a non-linear narrative so you can expect different encounters every time you blast off, one such outcome has a ‘brain slug’controlling the Captain and making him flush everyone out of the airlock in to the depths of space.
Here’s the key features of the game
SCAVENGE & EVACUATE
With only 60 seconds before nukes reduce the space station to floating particles in the vacuum of space, frantically grab whatever supplies and crew you can before getting out of there. You never know when that sock puppet will come in handy.
SURVIVE & DECIDE
Space funerals are inconvenient, so try to avoid dying where possible. Use your limited supplies and (hopefully not limited) wits to make difficult choices and ensure your survival, even though the odds are definitely stacked against you.
EXPLORE & CRAFT
Duct tape fixes all problems, but how do you fix (or at least craft) duct tape? Chart expeditions to find resources, craft survival essentials and explore strange new worlds in a procedural, very-much-permadeath adventure.
LEAD & PROTECT
As captain, it’s your duty to keep the crew happy – they’re less likely to kill you that way. Manage relationships as you watch them grow closer and hopefully not throw each other out the airlock.
