Want to... Go to space
Want to go to space, but accidentally end up going to the ground again, in pieces, get more determined and try again ten times until you can savour a brief victorious moment when you pass the threshold to the technical definition of space? Before the cruel gravity rudely yanks your creation back down towards physics emulated certain doom?
Want to "land" on a moon? Riddle your equatorial low orbit with tons and tons of debris?
Want to feel the bitter-sweet thriller-laced surprise of seeing your heartily built spacecraft perish in ways you never imagined possible, stretching your definition of failure to new horizons?
Unwittingly run out of fuel and get stranded in an orbit painfully close to, yet unreachably far away from your intended destination, forcing you to sporadically architect and implement a quick rescue mission?
Only to resignedly succumb to the realization that your newly launched rescue expedition, due to inexplicably unfortunate circumstances, suddenly also finds itself in an immediate and dire need of yet another rescue mission?
Accidentally learn orbital and aerodynamic flight mechanics in your desperately frantic efforts not to explode, due to the game covertly being both inspirational and educational?
Have your spacecraft buggedly duplicate itself upon loading it, causing the freshly spawned evil twin clone from the dark abyssian realm of the Kraken to physically intersect with the unfortunate original craft, gleefully tearing it apart in a heartbreakingly horrendous show of telefragging, the likes of which you have not seen since playing Quake?
Curse your own careless inattention after painstakingly placing a small unmanned lander around an unexplored foreign moon of a newly discovered distant planet, readying it for the final descent stage when you discover that you have mistakenly attached an Argon gas tank to your Xenon gas powered ion engine?
Making the engine produce its simultaneously first and last soul tearingly choking sputtering sad noise before dying out, effectively sealing the fate of the lander to forever being an embarrassingly bricked monument to your own dementia?
Construct a fragile but vast interplanetary satellite communications network, precipitously vulnerable to periodic catastrophic cascading signal outages due to its many points of failure and lack of redundancy?
Pilot unproportionally enormous single staged space-planes all the way to other planets' moons and proceed to land on them in a frivolously flamboyant show of defiance against the confines of practicality, purpose and reason?
Have your very distant, intricate and expensive spacecraft insolently threaten to violently wobble itself apart, for no reason other than purely in protest to all your meticulous and loving efforts of simply having created and cared for it?
While the craft wilfully ignores your all blood, sweat and tears from the strife of its arduous journey, as they silently boil away in the cold black emptiness of space?
With all the screaming impudence of a small child not having received the perfectly correct nuance of sugary flavour in its strawberry ice cream with colourful hello kitty sprinkles on top?
Yeah? Good, then the game is for you!
I can promise that you will have surprisingly much fun failing completely and miserably, compared to any other game, while the reward from the challenge of succeeding makes it all the more sweeter when you finally do succeed.
10/10, would launch again, for science!
