Space Age is a game of cosmic adventure. Set in the retro-futuristic sci-fi world of 1976, it follows a small but determined band of intergalactic explorers who land on a seemingly uninhabited planet, Kepler-16. They soon discover there’s something both strange and familiar about this alien place… And what happens next is a clash of old and new, a battle of past mistakes and future fallout.
“Presented through gorgeous pixel graphics straight out of an adventure game from 20-30 years ago. There's not much else like it out there.”
"Space Age is the type of adventure game I've been waiting for on iOS."
Space Age is a graphic adventure in the vein of 1990s classics, reimagined for the new millennium and its amazing mobile devices. Told in grand cinematic style, orchestrally scored, filled with drama, humor, and nostalgia, Space Age is a golden-age science-fiction story come to immersive life.
"The game looks gorgeous, the atmospheric soundtrack is delightful, and there is a ton of stuff to love about the gameplay and story of Space Age."
“Its expertly-judged nostalgia sees game ideas and aesthetics of the past blended masterfully within a fun, genuinely witty story.”

Ratings and Reviews
Ok, but too sparse
It requires an unnecessary amount of patience from the player. Games that have the player walking around and not doing too much usually have diverse and interesting scenery with intelligent and charming writing. Without that the first few levels felt like a polished husk. Writing and graphics that would otherwise be good enough weren't able to function as load bearing, no hooks here. Made me want to go play swords and sorcery again. I don't regret buying it though, still worth playing, just too sparse.
Game doesn’t work
I love these type of games & and am happy to support developers. But the game simply doesn’t run on my device (iphone 6). It doesn’t progress past the opening sequence, and no amount of clicking or re-installing fixes it. That it gets an app store recommendation makes it even worse, encouraging customers to waste money on an app that doesn’t work. Maybe they didn’t update it for the latest ios version. Who knows?? Nevertheless, a disappointing outcome.
Slow and tedious
I don't get this game. The 'gameplay' is so simplistic and unexciting that I wonder if it's for young children... but then the game has LOTS of tedious dialogue (which you can't speed up or skip) so it wouldn't suit a young child ... so I don't understand who it's aimed for.
I don't recommend this game. The graphics may be fun, but the game is NOT.
If you want a good explore/ adventure game try Radiation Island; Oceanhorn; or Don't Starve.
