The Descendant

Developer Release Year Platforms
Mac, PC

With the planet destroyed, only a few thousand ‘descendants of humanity’ were hand-picked to survive, cryogenically suspended in underground bunkers known as Arks. Centuries passed. The world recovered and all the Arks reopened, except one — Ark-01. Taking place across two timelines, in the past you’ll play as Mia, a janitor tasked with keeping the precious descendants housed within Ark-01 alive while the facility continually fails around her, and in the present, you’ll play as Donnie, one of the investigators trying to rescue any surviving descendants trapped within, all while discovering a far greater conspiracy buried within the underground Ark complex.


The Descendant review

Take it or leave it: the rushed series finale is a disappointing end to a promising but uneven post-apocalyptic series.
