In two weeks, Polish indie developer Robot Gentleman will finally release 60 Parsecs! on PC. Today, in anticipation of launch, more screenshots showcasing both the spaceship and resource gathering portions of 60 Parsecs! were released.
For those of you who aren’t aware, 60 Parsecs! is a spiritual successor to 60 Seconds!, which managed to be a runaway success for the small studio and sold over 1 million copies. Instead of having players delve into a fallout bunker, this game has players on a space station escape in a spaceship and explore the galaxy. It’s a welcome change of pace for fans of Robot Gentleman’s previous game, and can get just as odd of 60 Seconds! fairly quickly in a good way.
Once the bombs start dropping, players only have 60 seconds to grab four crew members, most of whom are unqualified, and as many supplies as possible. Once in space, players will have to navigate to galaxy while dealing with a wide variety of interesting situations with aggressive aliens, poisonous diseases, and even lustful AI.
You can check out the new screenshots below. 60 Parsecs! will launch for PC on September 18 for $14.99. For more on the game, you can check out DualShockers’ preview from last year or my interview with 60 Parsecs!’s Art Director and Game Designer.
