What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Although Heliopolis Six has everything it needs to be played as intended, we want to extend the content for which we already have plans. For example additional station parts, different station part sizes and a more complex resident behaviour. With Early Access we hope to determine what and how this content can be integrated. Additionally we see it as an opportunity to find and remove as many bugs as possible - if there are bugs at all ;) Therefore feedback from the community is much appreciated.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to be in Early Access for at least 12 months. But since the future is unpredictable, this is subject to change.”

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

“For the full version of the game we plan to add more station parts, modules and vessels, including a rotation section, different recreation modules and a cargo vessel. Furthermore we want to add new size classes for station parts. Currently, station parts are available in size class S, planned are the classes M, L and potentially X as class for special construction projects. Additionally, we like modules to change the surface of the station part they are built into, if it is reasonable. The space station residents are another pillar of the gameplay and we are planning to extend their behaviour. This can be, among other things, a greater number of available activities, regarding both work and recreation and that the space station as habitat has a greater impact on the residents. And what shouldn’t be missing, from our perspective, is a camagne telling a story, presenting different challenges and taking the player to different places in the solar system.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently a solid implementation of the core gameplay exists. Building and extending station parts, mining and refining of resources and hiring and managing of residents work as expected.

The current version 0.1 includes the following:
  • 12 station parts
  • 15 modules
  • 25 ressources
  • building in all 3 dimensions
  • extending station parts with different modules
  • implementation of resident behaviour
  • management of resource refining and distribution

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price when shipping new content and features.”

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

“We have a Discord Server, where both the community and the developers can discuss the current state, feature requests, bug reports and other issues.”

About This Game

Inspired by today's space travel, books, films and series from the sci-fi genre - such as Contact, Interstellar or Babylon 5, Heliopolis Six is ​​primarily a single-player economy-simulation. The fully buildable and customizable space station is set in our solar system in the near future. All technical aspects of the game world, such as the movements of the spaceships or the function of the station parts, are based on the laws of physics.

Build
As station director it is up to you how your space station looks and how it will be expanded. Station parts can be joined together and configured with modules in almost any combination. And thanks to zero gravity the station can be built in 3 dimensions. Construct solar panels, resource distribution systems, docks or living quarters – and that’s just a handful of things that are possible. Build a space station according to your preferences, maybe even the best space station of all times!

Manage
Good management is essential for the continued existence of your station. As station director you have to keep a close eye on all processes, so that your plan can succeed. Ensuring life support, providing living space, creating jobs, controlling production, collecting and distributing resources: Your management must function like clockwork, so the residents can have a good life and hold down their jobs. And if all this gets on top of you at some point, you can delegate some tasks to assistants. Ensure that it is lacking nothing and lead you and your station into a glorious future!

Survive
Space is a dangerous place: Malfunctions, lack of resources or overheating always try to push you to your limits. It requires your permanent attention to prevent such scenarios. Always look after your station and its residents and assert yourself against the inhospitable nature of space!

Features:
  • building in 3 dimensions
  • a variety of different station parts and modules to extend those station parts
  • mining natural resources and space debris
  • management of resources and production
  • management of residents and their jobs
  • the beauty of space: starry sky and different celestial bodies of our solar system
