Let's just skip the formalities with a story. You crashed your spaceship on a planet. Be happy.
To play, you can do quite a bit. For the most part, you'll want to try to survive on a hostile planet(Neo Terra). To do this, you can do several things in each area(10x10 map):
-Move to next area
-and any thing you can think of
To win, you can try to escape the planet, or call colonists to inhabit it, or anything else that would result in you NOT GETTING KILLED. Just surviving isn't an option. The planet has an toxic atmosphere that will kill you slowly (around 100 days)
Remember to keep yourself fed! Trying to survive for 100 days without food probably won't work well.
Such an alien environment will strain your mind. Pay attention to your sanity and find things to do that will balance it out. A high sanity rating means your stressed and you may hallucinate, but a low rating means your too calm, and won't react quickly. Stay around the middle.
A healthy person is a safe person. Keep your health up by using herbs and medkits that you may find from your crash.
Each area is different, even though some may be similar.
Remember that just because you search an area once doesn't mean there's nothing more. If you have the extra time, explore some more!
Sometimes you will find objects that are useless by themselves. Combining things together would work well in some cases, or not so well in others.
Objects can be used creatively. Just because you don't have a gun doesn't mean you can attack from a distance.
You may be able to find some friendlies, if they aren't killed before you get to them.
Watch out for the aliens! Some are primal, and will try to rip you apart with their claws, but some have advanced technology that, if you're lucky, you can steal for your own use.
If you don't know what an item does, ask your computer, if you have one yet...
And so, let's begin...OBTAINED
