From the creators of 60 Seconds comes 60 Parsecs by Robot Gentleman. The game is slated to release on PC September 18th 2018 with a console release afterwards. The game is set around survival at any means necessary. You will have 60 seconds in order to grab what you think is needed for survival before being blown to oblivion by a nuke. With the cartoon artwork and the goofy animations 60 Parsecs appears to be ready to give us plenty of laughs.
You must keep an array of crew members alive that consists of Baby Bronco, Deedee Dawkins, Emmet Ellis, Meagan Mann, and Tom Thomson. You are the leader of this crew and it is up to you to keep them alive. Let’s take a look at some of the features.
Scavenge and 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.
Survive and Decide
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 and Craft
Chart expeditions to find resources, craft survival essentials and explore strange new worlds in a procedural, very much permadeath adventure.
Lead and 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.
When I first watched the trailer for 60 Parsecs I thought this would just let you run around and try to escape a situation in 60 seconds with some slight comical add-ons. I was wrong, there is a lot more to this game and now I think I must play this game. I really enjoy this type of art style in games and throw in the humor…well I think I hear jackpot bells ringing.
