Brutal and Challenging Experience
- Deep mechanics
- Simple controls
- Responsive difficulty, always Hard
- Short sessions
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. It's 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. You're no farmboy-turned-hero; play smarter, because you certainly won't get stronger.
