Games with desolate settings are often bleak experiences. Black The Fall and The Outpost 13, for instance, both take place on bleak planets that are hostile towards humanity. However, sometimes a little bit of alone time is good for learning about ourselves. For instance, Elegy for the Dead places in an abandoned world where the players are left to figure out what happened and write the story themselves. Regardless of how you feel about games with barren settings, you should find plenty of Kickstarter games worth spending your alone time on.
