We’re pleased to reveal the Companions feature in Shattered Planet! On the planet, most aliens are either aggressively territorial, or don’t particularly care that a human might wave a tri-corder at them.
Occasionally, however, you’ll have the opportunity to befriend an alien, either through strenuous circumstances or random chance. For example, here’s a randomly accessible storybit that gives you the opportunity to either Attack or Feed a crablet:
I’ll leave it to your imagination which leads to adopting a pet crablet… but you’ll need a high Wits score to dodge those hungry little claws…
Anyhow, when you’ve somehow acquired a Companion (be they alien, robot, or something else entirely), they follow you loyally until the end! Companions universally hate to see you get hurt and most will literally jump in the line of fire to protect you, whether it’s to fend off a turret or a space-dragon.
We’re in the midst of designing a unique Companion creature and we want your input! Which critter would you rather have following you throughout the planet?
