What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Even though currently fully playable, Settlement Zero is at a point where is can be taken in several possible directions. Early access will ensure it goes in the direction that players would like to see, as they will themselves be influencing its future course and what it will eventually become.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The current plan is to leave Early Access with a full release towards the end of 2020.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Planned improvements for the final version currently include an increased play area, more robot types, improvements to robot AI, plus higher quality visuals effects. The gameplay will also be expanded upon.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The player can interact using buttons to call lifts and to open doors and is free to wander around the environment, which is a virtual space approximately a square mile in size without the interruption of level loads. There is also a public transport system allowing the player to take flying shuttle buses between four locations on the map. There are 4 robot types of varying difficulty, one of which is a drone type. There is also a spacecraft type that patrols and fires a laser at you. You have a raygun with 3 possible upgrades. You can pickup and store grenades scattered around the environment. The play area is mostly outdoors with a couple of indoor spaces and an underground area. There is an in-game menu for adjusting audio and graphics settings. There is currently no save game option. On death the player is returned to the start menu.

There is a game finish point but due to the open nature of the game could take the player anything from under an hour to several hours to get to. The final release version will continue beyond this finish point.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“After Early access there will be a gradual increase in price, with the final release expected to be an increase of between 25 and 50%.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“From social media, the Steam Community and other forums.”

About This Game

You wake up in the early hours of the morning and discover that the entire population of Settlement Zero is being evacuated, except for you ...

Settlement Zero is a first-person VR adventure using free movement, an uninterrupted experience free from level loads, mixing open exploration with frantic combat and survival as you defend yourself against autonomous spacecraft and unfriendly robots.

  • A large open VR urban space for people that prefer to be able to freely move around and explore without interruptions, and want to find their own way, without having their hand held every step of the way.
  • Autonomous enemies that aren’t constrained to a single location, so no two games are ever the same.
  • A new world unlike anything you’ve seen before.
  • Exploit the lifts, terraced steps ,and suspended walkways for high ground advantage, and increase your chances of survival
  • You'll have to learn to cope with not only what is coming at you from the ground, but also what is above as spacecraft track and aim their rays at you.

Game Setting

Settlement Zero was the first ever off-world colony, established in 2084 to help ease the overpopulation crisis back on earth. Considered phenomenally successful, it became a template for the numerous settlements that followed. It is now 2109 and the colony has been abruptly terminated, for reasons unknown to you.

Explore a totally new world, but make sure you don’t let the those robots get their metal claws into you!
