For a brief change of pace lets have a look at what is going on in the world of Outpost Recon. As a fairly simple runner/shooter style game the last thing it really needs is rich world lore and a deep storyline. But there is at least some backstory to what is happening in the world and context to the actions of the players and other factions.
What is going on? The peaceful research and agricultural colony of Vestia Prime is under attack by a newly emerged alien force. The alien’s vastly more powerful airborne forces have totally destroyed the colony’s space port and swarm on any ships trying to depart or arrive. Vestia Prime itself is protected by a huge energy field but the smaller outposts and bases scattered around have been completely cut off and many wiped out entirely. Unprepared for combat on this scale, they have no way of fighting back.
What will they do? The various research labs and manufacturing industries of the colony have pooled their efforts to put together makeshift land vehicles which seem to stay somewhat under the alien’s radar. Relying on their speed, these Recon Rovers must race across the terrain to try and find clues on what is happening. Everything from mining lasers, space ship thrusters and advanced chemical systems are being adapted in to new prototype weaponry systems to try and arm the Rovers against the aliens.
As players play through the levels they will be recovering a variety of datalogs, communications, research results and other data from the outposts. For players interested in learning more about the world you’ll be able to read these between missions and piece together the full story of what is going on!
