Black Angel

Humanity, through its irresponsible behavior, has rendered Earth uninhabitable. Faced by the urgency of the situation, the great nations are forced to share their knowledge in order to create the most vast spacecraft ever constructed: the Black Angel. Its mission: Transport the genetic heritage of Humanity to a new home planet.

Your objective: the planet Spes, reported to be as habitable as Earth. During this voyage that will last several millennia, the crew of the Black Angel, composed solely of robots, will be co-managed by several artificial intelligences (AIs).

You play as one of these AIs. You must make the most of the robots and resources under your control, explore Space, escape the formidable Ravagers, and learn to use new technologies discovered through contact with benevolent Alien species. Once you have obtained your objective, the AI that has earned the best score will have the privilege of overseeing the reawakening of Humanity….
