60 Parsecs is this mad chaotic race to begin with that descends into slow decay. What keeps it engaging is the random layout each time you start a new game to do your 60 second dash and the different tasks assigned daily each time. It would be even more addicting if their were leaderboards available to put you up against the best. To see whose lasted the longest.
Those first 60 seconds, though. Man, that’s a cool idea for a game. I don’t know how you stretch that out into a whole narrative. Maybe you’re constantly hopping from ship to ship, taking what you can and hoping there are better supplies in the future? It’s tough to think of a way to get that mad rush feeling and to keep it going. If you need to scratch that survivor game itch, 60 Parsecs will definitely do you good, but it’s not going to blow any minds.
It's just that it fails both as a strategy title, as well as a create-your-own-adventure experience, because it turns out that, no matter how well you get at it, Lady Luck will be in charge of this space ride, not you.
