Away Team is a resource and squad management simulation game where your goal is to get home. Your ship is stranded 4 jumps from home and each jump takes a certain amount of power and time to charge. You can send an away team on resource gathering missions to nearby asteroids, abandoned ships, and more. You can convert supplies into power and once the jump is charged, make your way home!
Click on your ship in the middle to spend supplies to level your crew, engines, or med bay. You can also convert supplies into power at the bottom. Clicking the advance time button will progress the away team mission, charge the jump drive, and heal onboard crew members.
Click on the surrounding destinations to send an away team to investigate and gather supplies. You can swap out crew members to try to meet recommended stats for bonuses. Injured personnel cannot be on the away team, and you only have 1 away team at a time.
Once the jump drive is charged, the power requirement is met, and the away team is back on board, you can jump to the next area. Be careful to keep enough power, it takes 10 per hour to keep the ship operating.
