A Long Journey to an Uncertain End
Out next year some time https://store.steampowered.com/app/1164830/A_Long_Journey_to_an_Uncertain_End/ and looks to be some sort of visual novel, FTL, management sim and you play the ship or the ships AI.
Not looking good, Captain. That holo-influencer you sent Matias to guard has been “upstaged”. Putting a former drag queen before every camera in the verse? Not the best idea. And the anti-sentience rally we sent Aylah to... that’s a riot now. Not saying it’s entirely her fault the audio drones were hacked but, you know. Probably didn’t help.
On top of that Truly and Denny are nowhere to be found. Any chance of keeping a low profile is out the airlock. Now there’s an incoming message from… your ex?
All in all, a quieter day than most.
A Long Journey to an Uncertain End is a narrative focused Space Opera that’ll have you flying around the universe assembling an unruly crew from an eclectic cast of characters and taking any job you can to keep one step ahead of your abusive Ex. The twist: you’re not just piloting a ship… you are the ship.
Supplies don’t come for free in the verse, doubly so for outlawed sentient spaceships. Every planet, moon and space station is a valuable source of jobs and their precious rewards. Assign crew tasks based on their skills, and help their decisions along the way. If everything pays off you’ll have what you need to escape, and if not...well, you can call in those favors you’ve been saving.
A Long Journey to an Uncertain End presents a unique vision of the future, a universe of inclusivity and diversity tainted by uncertainty and fear. Build a family within your crew. Every crew member has their own story, every planet its own history, and even your own adventure remains unfinished.
Sentient ships have been outlawed for centuries. With the help of your holo-companion C.O.R.G.I. and your (mostly) loyal crew, you managed to evade capture. Now there's an entire galaxy between you and freedom.
So...where to next, Captain?
- Fly across a unique galaxy, from the dust-bitten badlands of the Rim, to the techno-industrial megacities of the Core…and Beyond.
- Recruit an eclectic crew from a diverse cast of characters with their own stories and varied skill sets.
- Explore planets, moons and space stations as you put distance between you and your abusive ex. Match your crew to jobs and decide their actions along the way. If all else fails, you can always rely on a favor or two.
- Manage your resources to keep your crew happy. Boosting between worlds can take its toll, as can failing at jobs. A happy crew is a productive crew… most of the time.
Looks interesting, looks like a mix between FTL and Deep Sky Derelicts. Looking forward to seeing more of the gameplay.
