Sands is a narrative driven dark Sci-Fi adventure that tells the story of a desolate desert world and those who struggle to survive in it.
In Sands you are a Strider, who uses a small rail-cart to transport shady goods along the abandoned railway lines on the sun-soaked desert planet of Zetta-115. You’re currently on a journey, but the deserts of Zetta-115 are pretty inhospitable, so you’ll need to take shelter, and deal with any obstacles that lay in your path. Along the way a narrator tells you more about the planet, its history and the people within it.
It’s a slow paced and expansive feeling game that allows you to soak in the atmosphere of Zetta-115’s barren sun-beaten lands. You feel very small and fragile as you pilot your tiny rail-cart through the vast expanses of desert, and the narration does a great job of fleshing out the lore and immersing you in the world. Highly recommended.
