RymdResa Gameplay Review

I'm playing RymdResa, a role-playing exploration space adventure game by Morgondag.

Each chapter gives slightly different objectives, from visiting locations to collecting materials and gathering keys. The procedurally generated worlds provide some replay value. Resources are used for both moving and damage, and running out causes untimely death. Planets can be explored for resources, while materials are used to upgrade the home planet or mothership with new abilities. Experience points earned by collecting dust or simply surviving is used to unlock new abilities and increase skills levels. Items can also be found to change the attributes of the vessel. There is no combat, but space is a dangerous place filled with objects to run into. Death causes the ship to be destroyed, but items and upgrades are persistent. RymdResa is a relatively relaxing take on the space adventure game.
