BERLIN ­­- Jan. 9, 2017Phoning Home, an exploration game that follows a robot’s crash landing on an unknown planet and attempts to make contact with his native world, will land on Steam Feb. 7 for Windows with Mac and Linux versions coming at a later date.

Players guide ION, a small android exploring a massive alien world, as he uncovers the mysterious cause of his wreck. ION’s dangerous search results in encounters with towering wildlife, remnants of ancient civilizations and harsh elements like scorching deserts and bitter cold plains.

 

 

Early in his journey, ION meets ANI, a smaller robot that becomes a constant companion. ANI’s sharpshooting provides a robot leg-up in combat and keeps colossal enemies at bay while ION’s greater mobility helps the pair traverse the strange landscape. Only together can the team overcome nearly impossible odds.

ION will shield ANI from treacherous beasts and unforgiving hazards as she becomes more vulnerable to the relentless elements. Keeping the team safe by discovering and sometimes creating safe paths through the world, while outwitting the planet’s inhabitants and gathering resources to craft tools to return home will be the key to survival and triumph.

 

 

Phoning Home features captivating visuals that blend familiar elements of our own world with strange creatures, fantastic surroundings, and intriguing mystery. Weather and daylight follow realistic cycles, making the frigid peaks, lush forests, and other areas players explore feel truly alive.

 

Phoning Home‘s enormous open-world is full of surprises and provides players a true sense of adventure,” said Marko Dieckmann, founder, ION LANDS. “This combination of exploration and survival games will keep gamers on their toes as they embark on a journey like none other.”
