The game is a mixture of a roguelike game and a sandbox with a global plot.
A player takes control over a scout starship, one of the first interstellar ships built by humanity. His task is to explore unknown space, establish relationships with alien races and bring back home any valuable objects. Anything found in deep space, like artifacts of forgotten civilizations, new technologies or secret alien cookie recipes, can help Earth overcome its political and energy crisis.
The ship crew contains the best specialists from the planet Earth. Dozens of scientists are looking forward to researching alien artifacts, while the engineers are waiting for an opportunity to repair and upgrade the spaceship and the experienced soldiers are ready to give their lives to protect the project.
Exploration, diplomacy, battles and cold, lonely space – you'll find it all in Aurora!
