What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are a team of two developers with no external funding and we have been working hard on Captain of Industry for the last 6 years. We believe that we managed to get the game far enough to provide you with an exciting early access experience. However, to deliver a full release with all the ideas we have in mind, we need support and feedback from the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to stay in the early access for 2-3 years. We'd like to use this time to finish and polish the game, as well as take the time to incorporate feedback from early-access. We want to make sure that we deliver a game that we can be proud of and a game that players will enjoy.”

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

“We are targeting at least the following:

  • Several more features per community feedback where some candidates are: improved food industry, advanced space program, more mechanics around settlement & population, more interactions in exploration & naval battles, procedural island generation / multiple islands, focus on replayability, improved visuals, and more.
  • Balancing
  • Optimizations
  • More platforms
  • Translations
  • Mod support
  • Achievements

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We are currently working towards closed alpha. We have all the important pieces of the game in place. We just need to polish a few things, add more models, work on performance, and fix bugs.”

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

“We plan to raise the price slightly as we transition from early-access to full release.”

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

“We would love to hear feedback and ideas about the game mechanics, manufacturing chains, game balance, as well as bug reports. Later in the early access stage we are also planning to enable mod support which will allow community to change and extend just about every aspect of the game. Our community is currently most active on our Discord server but you can reach us on Facebook, Twitter, or here on Steam forums.”

About This Game

Captain of Industry is a construction and management simulation game where you and your loyal crew escaped to an abandoned island to start a new colony after the world has spiraled into chaos. In order to survive, you will need to mine raw materials, harvest food, build factories, manufacture products, construct vehicles, research new technologies, and explore your surroundings. If you are successful, you can even start a space program, build rockets, and assemble your own space station! With all that power and technology, you might be even able to end the word chaos. It's all in your hands.

Manufacture products

Start simple - smelt iron, mix concrete, create construction parts, and grow food. Soon you will be able to expand into crude oil processing, electronics, solar panels, datacenters, and even rocket parts. There are over 100 unique products to work with!

Build efficient factories

To build an industrial empire, you need to be clever. Place machines carefully to connect them more efficiently with conveyor belts. Refine raw resources close to their mining location to save fuel needed for transportation.

Shape fully dynamic terrain

No mountain is tall enough for your fleet of excavators! You can shape your island to your will - build natural bridges and ramps to access remote areas. Are you running out of space? How about dumping some rocks into the ocean to create new land!

Mine raw resources

Find the natural riches of your land and use them to expand your factories. Mine coal, iron, copper, gold, or pump underground water!

Farm your land

You need to feed your people. Start basic by growing some potatoes on farms. But this won't be enough. Later, use fertilizers and advanced greenhouses to keep up with the food demands.

Research new technologies

Research is a must have! Unlock new buildings and materials and make your factory more efficient. New technologies will change the course of your future.

Construct new vehicles

Trucks, excavators, and tree harvesters! Upgrade your fleet to make the most of it but make sure you are producing enough fuel to run all of these heavy machines!

Explore the world

Repair and upgrade your ship with better engines, armor, and weapons. Explore your surroundings, find refugees, discover more resources, and be ready for naval battles!
