Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“At the time of early access, the game was developed for 2 years. It implements my vision of the "dream game" and lays a solid foundation for a variety of ideas. But I see further development only in close connection with the gaming community - is development moving in the right direction? What would players like to see in the game first? Your opinion is very important to me!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“About 1-2 years. That's how much I need to implement all the ideas and achieve the state of a finished commercial product.”

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

The full version of the game will:

  • More factors affecting the life of the station (temperature, radiation, etc.)
  • Natural disasters (meteorites, earthquakes, eruptions, hurricanes, etc.), their prevention and counteraction.
  • As the game progresses, new factions will appear, they will interact with the player and with other factions (and countries), and will also influence the life of the stations
  • more types of character activities and their interactions with each other
  • optimization of the game in terms of size and speed
  • many other improvements

After leaving early access, I will continue to develop the game:

  • Construction of parks at stations (with trees, lawns, paths, benches, streams and lakes)
  • Conveyor production
  • A greater variety of game models (indoor, outdoor), furniture and equipment
  • Land and air communication of colonies with each other
  • The possibility of building underground and underwater stations, as well as stations floating in the atmosphere (Venus)
  • The discovery of extraterrestrial life, and interaction with it
  • Story mode
  • Flight to other stars
  • etc

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the moment, all the basic mechanics are implemented in the game:
  • Simulation of the solar system
  • Construction of stations both on the surface and in the orbit of planets
  • Physically correct space flights
  • Research Tree
  • Vital activity of the staff
  • Resource extraction and production

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

“The price will gradually increase with the release of large updates.”

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

“I am glad to receive any feedback and suggestions from players, and I try to respond to them promptly on Steam, on the official Discord game server or by email.”

Unique multi-kilometer landscapes of Mercury, Venus, the Moon, Mars, Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto, Enceladus and Titan.
Mineral deposits are uneven and individual for each planet.
The change of the time of day corresponds to the real one for each planet and depends on the location of the colony.
Radiation, illumination and other factors affecting the life of the colony are also individual for each planet.

Simple and powerful construction system:

From small buildings to entire cities, with free-standing buildings, pedestrian paths, stairs and lanterns.
Single/multi-storey premises accommodating both small furniture and industrial and scientific equipment with a height of tens of meters.
Dozens of rooms for various purposes.
Dozens of design options for each room inside and outside.
A large number of various furniture and equipment.

Vital activity:

Various specialties of the characters.
Each colonist has his own place of work and needs that need to be met.
The oxygen cycle at the station is provided by regenerators and plants.

Developed energy system:

Solar panels that generate energy during the day.
Energy generators that consume fuel.
Batteries that smooth out fluctuations in energy consumption and production.
Manual and automatic shutdown of both individual equipment and entire premises to save energy

Orbital stations and interplanetary flights:

A simple and powerful construction mechanism in space allows you to create both small stations and cities in orbit.
Realistic physics of interplanetary flights, including simulation of the movement of the planets of the solar system and real flight paths calculated by the game automatically.
