Here is an overview of the game, via 505 Games:

Onward To Adventure

Welcome to the Pioneer Program! As the newest recruit of Kindred Aerospace—the 4th best interstellar space exploration company—your job is to determine if the planet ARY-26 planet is fit for humans. You may be short on equipment and experience, but good luck!

Your mission includes:

  • Play with a friend – Play solo or online with a friend. If you have one.
  • Explore and catalog the flora and fauna – From strange spherical birds to hallucinogenic plants to “festering alien orifices.” Try not to die.
  • No Expense Spared – You get some cool tools for free, like a laser pistol, rocket booster pack, and “probe,” but if you need something you have a slick 3D printer can turn space trash into sweet items.
  • Are you alone? – Bonus mysteries! Complete your survey of the planet to find out. You’ll know you’re on the road to completion when you’ve heard the words “cucumber sh*twater” and found the “festering butthole.”
