The future is a wonderful place – but not if you need to manage the lives of some crash survivors left stranded on a deserted world. But that’s the premise of Symmetry right there.
Available right now on Xbox One for £14.39, Symmetry sees you thrust into a retro futuristic world in which a group of spacecraft crew members have put their very lives in your hands. Your task? To help them survive, and ultimately escape.
But it won’t be easy and you’ll need to take care of each survivor’s basic requirements – eating, resting, and mental health will need to be considered. There will however be the opportunity to see them learning new skills, crafting new items and battling the harsh weather conditions that hit the deserted world they are left on.
If you want to spend a bit of time kicking back and helping the lives of others, then Symmetry looks like something that should be well worth checking out. The Microsoft Store will be the key to your download.
Symmetry is a survival management game set in a retro-futuristic, sci-fi universe. Your main goal is to manage the crash survivors and help them withstand the desolate, extremely cold environment in order to fix their spacecraft and escape. The non- obvious plot is accompanied by an atmospheric musical score and graphic design that sustains the harsh and mysterious ambience. Survivors’ life functions crucial to their existence, such as eating, resting and mental health need to be taken care of. Extreme circumstances may force crew members to develop new skills like botanics or power plant operations, that weren’t necessary in their Earthly life. Gathering all the parts required to repair the spaceship becomes a race against time, as extreme weather conditions and life-threatening supernatural activities become more and more present. Vector graphics give the game a feeling of mystery and severity of the deserted world. Using dimmed and pastel colors throughout the scenery creates a sense of remoteness from reality and builds an unreal atmosphere of the landscape.
