Phoning Home Announced by Startup Indie Developer ION LANDS September 1, 2015 

Phoning Home is an intriguing mix of exploration, logic and action gameplay.

The robot ION (the player) is on a resource-gathering mission when something goes wrong. You crash on an alien planet and your ship is all but destroyed. You’ll need to find a way to contact your home planet for assistance.

As you explore your surroundings, you come across another robot named ANI.The two of you then embark on a journey during which you’ll encounter strange creatures and remnants of ancient civilizations as well as scorching deserts and bitter cold plains.

Only by working together can the two of you hope to prevail and escape from this strange planet.

Marko Dieckmann, founder, ION LANDS: Phoning Home’s enormous open-world is full of surprises and provides players a true sense of adventure. This combination of exploration and survival games will keep gamers on their toes as they embark on a journey like none other.

Phoning Home for Windows will launch February 7th on Steam.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
