IXION Game Review
Welcome to the game review this is often more of an informational Post about all or any more details of the IXION and what we all know so far.
Today we are going to look at IXION, you are sent on a mission to find a new home for humanity with a newly built space station called tycoon, that is split up into different sectors that you have to colonize and industrialize and with which you will travel through space, so it’s station and ship at once.
IXION Game Review: In the demo, there’s only one sector available that provides a bit of material for you to build the first industrial structures houses for your worker’s infrastructure and a science cargo and mining ship. The cargo ships will allow you to trade with other species or collect resources your mining and science ships have discovered while the science ships can be sent to planets or other locations to complete missions that will be rewarded with resources and science points. So exploration survival and constantly developing new technologies for the tycoon is also part of the game.
The story itself is pretty interesting and revolves around a company called dolos AEC that sends you to outer space to find resources and new planets for humanity to live on after earth is experiencing more and more catastrophes and crises. The leader of the company a charismatic but eccentric young man has high hopes for your journey and very wild but innovative ideas and even though the demo doesn’t give away too much of the story it ends with a nice cliffhanger that definitely makes you want to play more of the game and find out what’s happening.
IXION Game Review: I’m usually not the biggest fan of city builders and don’t play them much but Ixion has something special and grabbed me right away the controls are kept pretty simple and are easy to learn and understand the UI is clear and gives you a good overview of what’s going on all of the management and building tools are easy to find and well explained and it’s not overly complicated which is always important for me in city building games because I don’t want to study the game to play it, as usual, you have to keep an eye on your citizen’s happiness and provide enough resources, food, and energy to keep the journey going.
The demo also comes with a few missions to complete and a few events you have to solve like workers that are exhausted from overtime or getting sick and you as the administrator have to balance all of this out and try to make the right decisions. In the demo, this all happened at a good pace without being overwhelming which made the whole playthrough very relaxing but I think there will be more challenging moments in the final game.
What I really like besides this is the well-made cutscenes to tell the story and that the messages you receive fully voice no matter if it is your onboard assistant Eden who guides you through the demo or the calls you receive, for example, from the CEO of the company that gives you the time to manage your station while listening to them and doesn’t distract you too much because you won’t have to read the messages yourself. In addition, graphics and sound design are very well made and the game runs fine without any significant issues if you want to try out axion yourself you can do this by downloading the free demo on steam that will be available until March 7th.
IXION Game Review: The playtime of the demo is about an hour and even though it’s not showing everything it will still give you a good idea of what to expect in the final game when it will be fully released is not known yet but at least 2022 is given as the year. That’s all guys and I hope you enjoy this game review. If you like this game review please like the allow notification button it’s will help us.
