From Press Release:
POZNAN, PL – August 1st, 2022 – The atomic space age survival 60 Parsecs! returned last month with new and even more twisted adventures of exploring strange, far-away galaxies. The brave Astrocitizens will now come face to face with monstrous horrors from unknown dimensions, run the greatest heist the universe has seen, have the privilege of meeting the Astrocats, and even get a chance to raise an AI of their own.
What’s new in 60 Parsecs! Space Adventures?:
- Liberté, Égalité, Félinité – Let out of the bag by the French government, the glorious Astrocats explore the cosmos stirring trouble in search of the one comfortable place to land and lie down for a nap. Do you have what it takes to assist? Merci in advance.
- Who let the muttniks out? – A rogue pack of space dogs is on the prowl. Think you can fly with them and keep up? Think again, comrade silly human-person. This here is a real job. The greatest heist this galaxy has ever seen! Want in? Prove yourself first. Ready? Go… FETCH!
- SF is for space family – It takes a capable captain and their trusty AI to birth a new sentience. Can the two of you survive the perils of the cosmos and accidental parenthood, while raising a UFO from its infancy? You might want it to become a respectable spaceship, but what if it chooses to be a galactic menace? WHAT IF?! YOU’RE NOT MY FATHER, CAPTAIN DAD!
- The Horrors of Space – Have you ever experienced true horror? No, that time when your soup fought back does not count. Not by a long shot. Beware of the void, dear Captain. The void where dark creatures lurk and no one can hear you scream. The horror, the horror!
About 60 Parsecs!
60 Parsecs!, Robot Gentleman’s follow-up to the postapocalyptic dark comedy 60 Seconds!, launches the player into the atomic space age, with only 60 seconds to scavenge a doomed space station, before blasting off into a roguelite interstellar adventure of survival, aliens, robots, communists and soup shortages.
Melding sci-fi pop culture of the 1950s with Cold War and Space Race propaganda, 60 Parsecs! delivers a twisted take on space survival that’s both fantastic and oddly believable. It also features soup. Like, a lot. This fresh coat of cosmic paint is accompanied by an overhaul of the core scavenge and survival gameplay of 60 Seconds! including a whole new cast of misfit protagonists and menacing antagonists, storylines of incredible journeys into the unknown, introduction of a crafting system, and a deeper, more personal narrative that will take your almost-competent crew on a planet-hopping ride through wild space. 60 Parsecs! lives up to its suitably larger name.
