What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The game will be available in Early Access - and whilst we have a roadmap for the future of Orbitect, our priorities and focus are not set in stone. We will actively be soliciting feedback from players to help us shape the direction of the game. Come and join our community page to see and discuss updates!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“12 months.”

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

  • More modules
  • Steam Workshop
  • More events and narrative
  • Different planets
  • Improved performance
  • Statistical graphics
  • More music
  • Less bugs

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core functionality of base building is present, with some events with limited narrative content. Statistics can be viewed, but there are limited statistical graphics such as charts etc. Currently, the player faces a real challenge in building up their base, protecting it and gathering the resources they need to grow.”

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

“The game price will increase as more features get implemented.”

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

“Using the community hub as the main point of communication, talking with the community to understand what features they want.”

About This Game

A Chilled Or Thrilled Build

Orbitect is a mash up of a physics sandbox and resource management game using panels on block faces to generate resources for expansion and defence.

Whether you choose to be the architect of a beautiful autonomous space-haven or instead piece together a technological abomination, the choices - and consequences - are yours.

Sol Mates

You are Oumuamua, an ancient traveler indistinguishable from the vessel you reside within - existing as a metallic cube that is not entirely unlike sentient ore. The objective of your kind has remained the same for eons - interact with new cultures, explore new technology and unite life across the galaxy.

Your journey begins in Sol; A fragmented, but relatively peaceful system that is home to Humans, who reside across a number of planetary bodies. Despite you being an anomaly to them, money talks; if you have the means to trade, you are able to make friends. You are also able to make enemies.

Creators Gonna Create

Whether you’re a newcomer or a veteran of the resource management genre, Orbitect offers an approachable, intuitive, vibrant, and completely not-serious experience. The game comprises of two main modes:

  • Campaign: A focus on trading, building, relationship management and intentional building as you immerse yourself in the rich narrative of the world of Orbitect.
  • Creative: Get imaginative as you bring your wildest creations to life, with unlimited resources and very little to stand in your way.

The game will be currently available in Early Access - and whilst we have a roadmap for the future of Orbitect, our priorities and focus are not set in stone. We will actively be soliciting feedback from players to help us shape the direction of the game. Come and join our community page to see and discuss updates!
