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 alien world 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 to sent to uncover what happened. What players discover will challenge their view of surveillance, imperialism and moral law.

Welcome aboard The Station.

Features
• A World of Augmented Reality - The future holds a progressive attitude towards how information is stored and shared. Technology has gone through a digital revolution and conversations, notes and even computers are experienced in full Augmented Reality. Ranging from personal to professional, these AR logs will let players explore what was taking place on-board.
• Intuitive Problem Solving - When a door won’t open, what will you stop at to discover what lies behind it? The secrets on-board the station will resist being uncovered and you must rely on your ability to identify and solve intuitive but subtle problems - The Station itself is a puzzle to be solved.
• Piece Together a Living Story - We believe the best stories are shown not told. Each room and space will have a unique moment to share if you look close enough – as the story unravels each detail will begin to fall into place. For the keen eye, a rich story awaits.

Even stranger than its premise and scarier than it looks, The Station is a short ride to a great ending.

Walking simulators are often defined by their stories. The Station never truly delivers on its premise or setup

If you're a fan of exploration titles then you should enjoy this. While The Station doesn't reach the heights of some other titles in the genre, it is a good attempt and tells a slightly different story. Hopefully the audio and visual bugs can be ironed out, but The Station is an intriguing little mystery that has you guessing what happened to the crew on board right until the very end.

It may not be a great game, but the puzzles are impressive. It's just shame it has such a rushed ending that never rewards you for following the plot.
