Earth is dying, and you're the last one to leave. Don't forget to turn out the lights. You're an AI, steering the last human spaceship into the great unknown, looking for a place to live. That's not an entirely new concept, but the way The Away Team is presented is pretty special indeed. You might call it "interactive fiction with a fancy interface," as it's mostly text-based. Steering the spaceship through different sectors, you search for places to ransack or explore, and then you pick the people for your away team. From there on, it's all text, and lots of it.
