A fantastic sequel! Marvelous!, January 7, 2015
Following the events from the first game, you are now a lonely scientific refugee. Your escape pod crashes on an unknown space station, and you have to explore and find a way out of your exploding galaxy.
I enjoyed this game tremendously. The station was intriguing. I loved exploring, and figuring your way around was fun. Having directions at the top of the screen helped, and before too long I knew my away around port!
The puzzles were straightforward, and of good difficulty. I only had to use the walkthrough a couple of times (mainly at the end because I panicked) but overall it was clear what needed to be done. This was a step up from the first game, as sometimes it wasn't clear that you needed to put the disc with the cylinder.
I absolutely love who you "meet" in the ship! Really adds backstory and knowledge, and it was fun getting an insider's take on the rooms I had just been exploring. My favorite part of the game. Well developed too for a character of that sort.
I really liked the use for the ticket, ingenious! Wonderful way to make something so useless useful!
(Spoiler - click to show)I found being able to keep the countdown going amusing. It was helpful as I wandered around at the end though.
The list of achievements was fun, and although I didn't get them all, it was satisfying seeing I earned another one, even if it was the death ones.
This story just adds on to the feeling of loss you felt throughout the first game. As you delve deeper into the story, it intensifies. Flashbacks and meeting your "companion" add to it. But if a story makes you feel, that means it's great and doing its job! And this one does it well. Bravo!
