The UI really shines: a sidebar lists important data with healthy values in green, and each planet appears with a list of variables that make it suitable or inhospitable to human colonization.
Some planets have anomalies, and randomized events are encountered between planets. These typically give you a binary choice between a known penalty or reward and an unknown penalty or reward. The planets may have random features that can be useful to investigate up close, with a consumable probe.
The prose isn't always world-class, but this is a strong piece highlighting some great uses of procedural generation. Highly recommended.
You visit many planets, hoping to find ones that are breathable, have water, are friendly, etc.
All sorts of events happen on your trip, but the game is mostly linear with mostly binary choices. There are some (fun) exceptions.
Overall, an enjoyable small game with great depth.

Twine (or other hypertext) games where your decisions make a significant difference, and the story changes significantly based on them (not just resulting in your death).
Best sci-fi games by Ant-Fan
I'm looking for games from the sci-fi genre. I would prefer classic-style games, even if they're not classics (such as 'Across The Stars') because one of my all-time favorites is Planetfall, but really, anything goes.
