About this game
Developer: The Station
Content Rating: Teen
The Station game is a first-person narrative mystery set on a space station sent to study a sentient alien civilization. How would you react if we discovered a sentient alien civilization, challenging everything we know about biology, chemistry, physics, religion and answering the questions man has asked throughout history? But what if this sentient alien civilization was discovered in a state of civil war? Determining that the rewards outweigh the risks, an undetectable space station with a small three-person crew deploys to research the alien culture in search of a means towards a peaceful relationship. Unable to contact the crew, a recon specialist is sent to uncover what happened. What players discover will challenge their view of surveillance, imperialism and moral law. Welcome aboard The Station.

As interesting as the question of “What would mankind do?” is, The Station rarely has an answer. Perhaps thinking deeply about the dilemma is part of its charm, but it ended up being a hollow experience that didn’t deliver enough resolve on its alien ambitions.
I spent about 15 minutes looking at the spines of all the books on her shelves because I became convinced it was on one of them. The Station is delivered with polish and flair, but the trouble is that what you receive doesn't feel very new, and I'd love to see this studio throw out something a bit weirder.
Visually the game looks decent considering the size of the team. Some corridors feel eerily similar, but that is kind of to be expected. The atmosphere is dark and moody, and the sound team did a decent job of cueing sound at just the right time. I really liked the mood set by the game.The Station is a decent outing that falls short in some key areas. I wanted more back story, more intrigue, and more interesting puzzles. Still, I had fun with the short romp and the ending, while predictable, is still fun. I would love to see this team craft a bigger sequel with a proper budget.
