As when I first wrote about the terrifyingly titled Human Extinction Simulator, I feel it is necessary to point out that the game wasn’t grown in the same lab vats as the likes of Pandemic and Plague Inc. In the Extinction Simulator, your role is to prevent humanity’s destruction by working out methods by which alien fleets can be defeated. The simulator takes the form of a turn-based tactical combat game and I’ve been playing an early beta version. Most of the current content takes the form of tutorial type missions but I still managed to fail humanity a few times. I am learning though and enjoying the school of hard alien knocks (not a Mass Effect Mills and Boon spin-off).
