Seedship by John Ayliff

An AI ship full of frozen colonists must find the best planet to be the new home of the human race. Push your luck: do you settle here, on this not-quite-ideal planet, or keep searching and risk your ship being damaged in the journey? The planets you encounter are randomly generated, and as you travel you encounter random events, so each playthrough is different.

but either it's really easy or im just lucky. on my second playthrough i just landed on the first planet which was this:
Atmosphere: Toxic
Gravity: Very low
Temperature: Very hot
Water: Trace
Resources: Poor

Unstable geology

and people still survived

This was a very interesting text based game. I didn't succeed in saving the colony but I'll give it a new attempt very soon.

This is Awesome! Very cool game-Any chance you have any ideas I could use for mine? Mine won't be near as good, but still-if you have ideas, i'd love to use them. This game is Suh-weet!

Intriguing! The gameplay is primarily stat-based, yet it never feels like you're just controlling numbers on a screen; the language used, the tone, puts weight on your choices, emphasizes the value of the colonists' lives. There aren't any true characters aside from the AI, but that only heightens the sense of loneliness and emptiness in the vast blackness of space. All alone, with a thousand lives in your hands, an entire species' fate up to you... and more often than not, instead of avoiding damage altogether, you must choose the lesser (or more bearable) of two evils; give up decades of sleepless nights and entire lives of scientific research, or lose the only records of the brightest and most inspired minds who poured passion and creativity into their art? So realistic. Very well done.

Wow. This game is SO MUCH FUN! It is very addictive and frustrating (in a good way!) and I wish I had more time to play this.

Tough choices give the game realism. The game's plot is entertaining. The consequences of your actions are original each time. Could use a bit more explanation when scoring, or perhaps a score line to determine amount of success. I enjoyed the game more than most and would recommend it. Nice work John!

Tale's review is sarcastic...I assume, because it is well done and makes you want to do better.
