The Station, a first-person space exploration game focused on saving a stranded research team, is in the midst of its Kickstarter campaign. Offering a new view on alien civilizations and what it means to learn about them, The Station promises to take a unique twist on the typical exploration game. Nothing is known about these aliens, not even if they are hostile or peaceful — that’s where you come in.
Faced with an unknown enemy in the midst of a civil war, a search and rescue team is launched when a research vessel’s shields (which make the ship invisible to the aliens below) fails. The scientists aboard stop communicating as all systems are down. Finding any survivors as well as collecting the augmented reality logs that hold important research data are the focus of your mission.
The team behind The Station is a group of industry veterans. Having worked on games such as League of Legends, Destiny and the original Crash Bandicoot, there is years of experience going into the creation of The Station. Looking to create a story rich game with which they could take their time to produce, these industry vets decided to embark on the indie game journey.
