60 Parsecs! – Quick Beginner Guide

In this 60 Parsecs! guide you will learn everything you need for a good start!

1. The Start

1.1 Characters

In 60 Parsecs we have 5 characters, each with unique abilities.

1. Emmet Ellis

Agility – 1
Intellegence – 3
Strength – 0

Makes 2 resources of each kind everyday

Captain’s Goal:
Make 5 succesful Intelligence attribute decisions

Emmet, in my opinion, is the best character in the game. He’s smart, runs fast, not so clumsy, and makes 2 resources of each kild EVERYDAY. You can win the game by taking him only, if you want so. Perfect for new players.

2. Deedee Dawkins

Agility – 3
Intelligence – 1
Strength – 1

Hunger decays slower

Captain’s Goal:
Make 7 succesful attribute decisions of any type

Nice character, not as easy to play as Emmet, but not so hard as Tom. Perfect for whose, who want to play a nice, not-so-hard-not-so-easy game.

3. Baby Bronco

Agility – 1
Intelligence – minus 1
Strength – Perfect

Can make friends faster

Captain’s Goal:
Become friends with at least 3 of your crewmates

Pretty good character, totally not the easiest, but still not the hardest. And his perk is great too.

4. Maegan Mann

Agility – 2
Intelligence – 2
Strength – 1

Less likely to suffer from poor health

Captain’s Goal:
Keep a full crew alive for 30 days. (Full crew is the only ones, you taken from the station, not the 4 astrocitizens in the ship).

Pretty hard character, pre-hardest one, because of no perfect or 3 pointed abilities.

5. Tom Thomson

Agility – 1
Intelligence – 2
Strength – 2

Less likely to go insane

Captain’s Goal:
Send 5 successful expeditions on a strange, new world

The hardest character in the game. Get ready for the pain.
Why so:

  • Runs slower than others (Just like Bronco). 
  • Has no 3 pointed or perfect abilities. 
  • His perk is a junk (Seriously, if you play well, you won’t go insane at all). 

Thats all the characters we have.
Moving on to the new page.

1.2 Items

2. Medkit
Cures the deseases.

3. Sock doll
Cures the insanity.

A telephone, but for space. You will neen this, then you land on the planet.

2. The Game

2.1 The survival basics

So, you made it! You are in the space! But what to do next? This page of our guide will help you!

Basic tips:

  • Your crew needs food. Feed them once in 5 days, that should be enough.
  • Try to land on the planet as soon as possible.
  • There’s a crafting device on the ship. Use it as much as you can.
  • Think before you choose, what to do next.
  • Craft medkit as fast as you can. It needs very much time to craft, so if you catched a desease, and there is no medkit, you very likely will be dead.
  • Send expeditions on the planets.

2.2 Your spaceship

List of all the devices, what currently available in your ship.

1. Crafting machine
You can craft and recycle things and upgrade your spaceship here. Crafting machine needs resources, so you need to find them somewhere. Can be upgraded to make more items.

2. Main computer
You can see, what troubles meet your crew this day, and solve them here. Think before you make a choice!

3. Journal
You can see results of the past day choices here.

4. Spacesuit
Send people on to scavenge in it. Can carry 2 things. Can be upgraded to carry more (up to 4 things).
