What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The core mechanic of Orbitect has been built, but there is huge room for growth regarding additional mechanics. I want to involve the community in this process to understand what mechanics they want the most, and the aspects of game play they feel need changing.”

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

As the owner of a new private space company, your mission is to gradually build up your space station until you dominate low earth orbit.

You must build your space station using modules and panels for various space station functions. As the space station grows, more astronauts will come aboard and new spacecraft will dock, providing resources for further expansion. However, the station faces adversity; you must protect against both natural and human threats such as space debris, solar flares, politics, sabotage and meteors using missile, gun and shield panels.


  • Space station sandbox building
  • Economy, resources and astronaut management
  • Diverse events (e.g. meteor, solar storm etc) that must be reacted to
  • An emergent narrative system that provides different events depending on procedural generation and the actions of the player
  • Interactions with multiple countries, each with their own agendas.
