Lost Sol follows the life of a spaceship’s crew near the Earth. The crew needs to explore the remnants of humanity to improve their chances of survival. In order to achieve this, you need to research new technologies, scavenge, mine resources, manage your crew, and rescue other survivors, sometimes even dismantle parts of your own ship in an effort to keep your ship afloat.
Throughout the game, you need to make careful decisions how to build your ship, and manage your crew.
By year 2499 humanity had extended its reach to the Moon and Mars, with a network of stations spread throughout the solar system, each serving their own purpose. Travel times between the planets were still long and space travel ever treacherous. However, a new technology was developed, one that promised to change everything – two colossal gates, constructed between Earth and Mars.
These gates represented the cutting edge of scientific research, capable of creating stable wormholes between the planets. While the gates promised to dramatically reduce the cost and time of space travel, concerns were raised over the instability of the technology. In spite of these concerns the project was pushed through in order to have the gates ready for the start of the New Year, a momentous event that marked the beginning of the new century and it was hoped, a new era for humanity.
Tragedy struck on the eve of the New Year. While each gate was powered up successfully, it was not long before the gates began emitting increasingly powerful waves of gravitational energy. The effects were devastating: all ships and stations in the vicinity of each gate were crushed in an instance. Those further away suffered less damage but the immense gravitational forces soon caused the gates themselves to collapse. Within minutes, Earth, the Moon and even Mars began to disintegrate.
After a while the anomaly became unstable, and collapsed in a violent explosion. The wave of destruction it left behind was unimaginable. The Earth, and Mars were no longer habitable, and the space around was filled with massive debris fields. The ships, which survived this apocalyptic event were now left stranded, and many of them did not have the facilities to survive more than a few hours.
However, a glimmer of hope remained. Important data from the event was shared throughout the Solar system. This valuable information might be used to develop new technological breakthroughs. There were still surviving smaller colonies like the Europa Science, and Mining Colony near Jupiter, and many smaller station colonies around the asteroid belts beyond Mars. Normally, the majority of these colonies relied on the central planets. Moreover, the communication network collapsed after the disaster. Only time will tell if the survivors are able to stay alive.
